Free Apps Paid Apps
This may be the big between the two; however, since Match hasnt changed in years, we can assume its not affecting their bottom line that much.
Tinder is super simple to use; enter your name, age, pictures, bio, and youre good to go. Theres no painful onboarding process where you have to answer 50 questions to see a match.
Its process has made it easier for users to download and get right into the game. Users are also able to start watching right away and start talking to other users.
Match, however, allows the users three free conversations a day before they have to pay. This is new to Match as they used to be entirely exclusive for paying members only.
Tinders payment structure allows the options to pay if they want to, but the app is still fully functional, like Bumble, if the user doesnt want to pay. They give the option to the user to enhance their experience, but its not necessary.
Match offers more powerful features for dating, where users can build their perfect spouse by using all of their filters. This all depends on how important these features are to you and how vital short or long-term dating is.
Similarities Between Tinder Match
For instance, the biggest standout from both the apps is the “card stack” this is where users are shown a profile, and they must swipe left or right if they like it.
This card stack presentation is shared among all mobile apps. This style is great because it allows users to see multiple profiles and decide if they fit their type.
For instance, on Match, instead of using your thumb to the right and left swipe, the user can hit the heart or the X thats seen below.
Tinder and Match also feature a location aspect, where users can set the mileage of where they want to find their matches. (more…)
