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. The functionality of the swipe is now in use by multiple other companies and software In 2015, Tinder introduced the ability to go back to rejected profiles, “rewinding” if the user feels they made a mistake—something previously not possible on the app
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 main companion site for Tinder has been Facebook, as Tinder users connect their Facebook profile to their Tinder accounts for verification and profile details. Chatting on Tinder is only available between two users that have swiped right on one another’s photos. 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. The site also has verified profiles for public figures, so that celebrities and other public figures can verify they are who they are when using the app
