Match vs. Tinder: Dating cost against app features

By Peter Chubb - May 20, 2014

Tinder is free unlike many other dating services, which will cost you money but their apps might deliver a lot more features. The popularity of the Tinder app is clear though; of course this is helped by the fact that it’s free and simple to use. However, owners of Tinder believe they can offer more, which is why match.com is undertaking a new mobile strategy, although borrowing heavily from its sister service.

It was last month when Match.com completely redesigned its mobile app so that it makes use of Tinder’s swipe feature, allowing users to flip through photos until they find someone they like. The changes made compared to the old app are huge, but we have to wonder if these new dating app features are worth the cost, especially when you consider Tinder does not cost anything.

It is amazing how many people ask does Tinder cost money, when it is widely known that this is a free service, unlike Match.com. While the app may be free, the services are not and so will require you to make in-app purchases. Okay, it is a bit unfair to mock those for asking does tinder cost anything, seeing as though many of you would have never had to use such a service before.

Tinder features are even better thanks to its update in March, which fixed issues with ordering of cards and where some users were getting logged out due to bad network connections. There are some great Tinder alternatives, but this is still one of the more popular apps out there.

Because apps like these that have grown in popularity, Web based dating services have had to up their game to cater for the smartphone crowd, and so it is no surprise to see Match taking a few lessons from Tinder, seeing as they are a majority owner.

Match dating prices – However, Match has one hurdle that people looking for love find hard to jump over, and that is cost. If you live in the UK you will pay £12.99 per month for a 6-month subscription, £19.99 for 3 months and £29.99 for a 1-month membership.
