Boost Your Dating Chances With Tinder’s New Feature

Tinder-and-Increased-STD-RatesWhen-Swiping-Right-Goes-WrongFor all those looking to move ahead in the dating game or at the very least step into it somehow, the booming dating application Tinder is almost like a godsend. That is until you fail to make any matches and end up feeling even more lovelorn and frustrated. Luckily the popular app recently launched its newest addition to its list of features, Tinder Boost.

This paid feature aims to ‘boost’ your chances at matching with people, by pushing you to the front of the line and featuring you as the first face that a prospective match will see. While the cost of the feature has not yet been unveiled, Tinder is ready to release the feature in their global markets very soon.

According to Tinder, the Boost feature will increase your chances of getting a right swipe (a positive swipe) by putting you at the top of list of matches for up to 30 minutes. The company claims that by boosting your profile, you could get up to 10 times more profile views than you usually would. At the end of the Boost time period, Tinder will present you will a number of statistics stating exactly how many more views your profile received. This will then help you decide on whether you would like to try the feature again in future.

The company will give all users of Tinder Plus a free Boost every week. However if you do not use Tinder Plus but would still like to use the function, you have the option of purchasing the feature as often as you like. Another similar feature that was launched by Tinder a while ago was the Super Like, which also served to get users more views and matches.

The Boost feature is sure to prove itself useful in a large metro city, where the number of Tinder users is greater along with the increased struggle to find a match. However in a smaller community, constantly boosting your profile might not make much of a difference.

Following a recent partnership with Spotify, Tinder introduced music preferences into the dating application, to allow users to add their favourite songs and artists and even select a song as their ‘anthem’. Hopefully all these features will lead to all those lonely hearts receiving a bit of respite.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
