Tinder Updated to Version 2.0, Updated UI With Improved Recommendations Engine

Tinder

The Tinder team pushed version 2.0 to Google Play last night, complete with a fully redone user interface and performance optimizations. For anyone confused as to what Tinder exactly is, it’s where people anonymously creep other people’s pictures by swiping “Nope” or “Like.” If the person Likes you back, you can then chat with that person, and as the saying goes, the rest is history. 

Not only did the app receive a major facelift, but matches can now be filed under lists, which allows users to not have just a long list of random matches to scroll through. It’s perfect for filtering out the spam. To top it all off, you should get more matches thanks to an improved recommendation engine. No more “forever alone” memes for you.

What’s New:

  • A whole new look for Android.
  • Now you can organize all those matches into custom lists.
  • Improved recommendation engine.
  • Fixes, optimizations, and much more.

    Cant wait to go see the no matches I get

  • Just_Some_Nobody

    Ah, now this is what lasting relationships are made of.

      It could be… Are you trying to tell me that people men and women that they’re NOT attracted to and hit on them? No, they don’t. Tinder uses the same thing that most people use when approaching someone they don’t know, attraction. And truth be told, attraction is one of the most important parts of a relationship. Because to make lasting relationships… you kinda have to want to look at the person you’re with.

    I’m dumb enough to admit that I’ve been dating a girl for 2 months now that I met on tinder. Do I have to invite Droid-Life to the wedding since I had never heard of tinder before you guys posted it?

      That’s not dumb at all, congrats to you. I’ve met at least 90% of the girls I’ve dated since 2009 online.

      We’d be honored to be in attendance! Congrats on the future nuptials. :P

      Two months and already talking marriage?

    • Chippah

      Didja send her pics of your Pecka?

    • Trueblue711

      You’re not dumb at all. Now that social networking is the norm online, I feel the stigma associated with online dating is gone for the most part. A lot of people I know how tried it at some point and with the advent of apps, it’s almost the “it” thing to do now.

    Uhh..

    Who the hell cares? Why is this newsworthy?

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      Oh, that’s right – mustbepbs-life.com. That’s my bad, boss.

      • mustbepbs

        Where’s your LG G Pad review? I told you to get on that last week, peasant.

        • Ryan

          I wish I could strike the Ban Hammer on you.

        • blackjaguar25

          The douche is strong with this one.

            I thought it was funny lol

    • j

      Cuz Allison is 22 and pretty hot.

  • Wolfpack93

    But it’s so hard to tell if someone is conceited just by looking at their selfie…oh wait

  • martyjones100

    Do u have to have the Facebook for this? I don’t have the Facebook, I’m a real man. However, I do have twitter cuz im a motherfuckin superstar.

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      Unfortunately, you do have to have a Facebook account with photos attached to it.

      • http://twitter.com/jdrch jdrch

        I don’t see what’s unfortunate about that. Tinder uses Facebook likes and mutual friends to determine potential matches, and connecting your Facebook account also makes adding photos a cinch.

          Wish they’d use G+, I stopped using EFFBook in 2010

          • http://twitter.com/jdrch jdrch

            There’s really no difference at all between Google and Facebook’s attitude towards privacy and user data. That and I can count the number of attractive females – whose profiles didn’t look fake – I’ve seen on G+ on one hand.

    • BSweetness

      You don’t have Facebook because you’re a “real man,” yet you want to use the 2013 equivalent of Hot or Not? Ok…

  • Justtyn Hutcheson

    Gotta say, that this app is one of the most interesting studies in visual attraction that I have seen. Unfortunately, I doubt it is WYSIWYG, so I’d take any “matches” with a boulder-sized chunk of salt. Himilayan Pink especially, as that stuff is worth a good amount :-)

    • http://twitter.com/jdrch jdrch

      Since you add photos directly from Facebook, the likelihood of being catfished is lower than, say, PlentyOfFish.

      • Michael

        And creating a fake facebook and adding fake pictures isn’t possible?

        • http://twitter.com/jdrch jdrch

          Fake FB profiles are difficult for Tinder because the service chooses matches based on mutual friends and likes. As such, having a successful fake Tinder profile takes a lot more effort than having on another service, because you’d literally have to target a single group of people, their friend lists, and their likes. It’s not impossible, but it’s too cumbersome to be worthwhile.

        • Fattie McDoogles

          And there’s no direct communication until both people like each other. That’s really the key. You would literally have to sit and like every single female that you come across and hope that they are actively using the service and you fall into their preferences. There’s a lot more work and a lot more luck involved.
