Candidates who are most likely to be compatible based on geographical location, number of mutual friends, and common interests are then streamed into a list of matches.Based on the results of potential candidates, the app allows the user to anonymously like another user by swiping right or pass by swiping left on them.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.Initially, instead of a swiping motion, users would click on either a green "heart" or red "X" to select or move on from the photos shown.As of October 2014, the app was processing over one billion swipes per day, producing about twelve million matches per day.If two users like each other it then results in a "match" and they are able to chat within the app.In March 2015, Tinder announced the public release of its paid service, Tinder Plus, a feature allowing unlimited matches, whereas the free Tinder app limits the number of right swipes in a 12-hour period.
As of late 2014, an estimated 50 million people use the app every month with an average of 12 million matches per day.

Tinder is a location-based social search mobile app that allows users to like (swipe right) or dislike (swipe left) other users, and allows users to chat if both parties swiped to the right.
The app is used as a dating app or hookup app, depending on the user's individual preference.As of November 11, 2015, Tinder's "Moments" feature had been retired.
