The Boost feature lets the user have the top profile in the area for thirty minutes.
As of October 2014, the app was processing over one billion swipes per day, producing about twelve million matches per day.
The average user would generally spend about an hour and a half on the app each day.
After transitioning from the clicking function Tinder initially used, Tinder became the first "swipe app", now a term to describe various apps that use swiping left or right to control what content the user sees in a browsing fashion.
Companion apps were being developed by different companies allowing users to, for example, use the user's heart rate to determine which direction to swipe instead of the user swiping with their hands.
The selections a user makes are not known to other users, unless two individuals swipe right on each other's profiles.
However, once you have matches on the app, you were able to send "Tinder Moments" to each of a user's matches at once, allowing each match to like or not like the photos.
In November 2016, Tinder introduced more options for users to select their gender.
In the app's settings, users have the option to type a word that suits their gender identity.
Tinder says that Super Likes makes it three times as likely for users to find a match.
As of November 11, 2015, Tinder's "Moments" feature had been retired.
Using Facebook, Tinder is able to build a user profile with photos that have already been uploaded.
