Tinder released their biggest update yet today, making the in-app purchases like “Rewind” and “Passport” official. You know what else is official? The shit has officially hit the fan according to the app’s reviews in the App Store. The update has a universal one-star rating with over 1,500 reviews already. People aren’t happy with the “dating” app limiting user’s swipes and likes. Unless you upgrade to Tinder Plus, your swipes are limited. Also, it wasn’t made clear that Tinder Plus’s $9.99 price tag was actually a monthly subscription fee. $120 a year down the drain just to ask girls if they do butt stuff.
The reviews are pouring in and people are PISSED:
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Shout out to the dude who was excited about the spam bots being gone, though. Call me crazy, but I kind of liked the hooker bots. Sometimes, I needed a little confidence boost after getting shut out by babes. Those little “Hey ;)” messages were just enough to get my confidence up. Yeah, it all came crashing down once the link to the cam show popped up, but still. I didn’t mind it. You gotta chop down some weeds to get to the flowers.
Will Tinder recover from this? Yes. Undoubtedly yes, because people are and always will be a confusing mix of lazy and horny and Tinder has eliminated the guess work from hooking up. However, will we start to see the emergence of a Lyft-like competitor to Tinder’s Uber? I shot our app guy an idea. Tinder, but for butt stuff. I think it could be big. Eliminate even more guess work..
