How to use Tinder
In terms of primary features, Tinder is pretty barebones. Things are kept simple when it comes to matching, although there is plenty of “fluff” that can add to the experience. These would be things like Super Likes, Top Picks, Gold Hearts, and Subscription Packs.
Swiping is how you like someone’s Tinder profile. Since this is a dating app, only a connection or “match” is made if applicable. If two people like each other, they match and can chat within the app.
To like someone, press anywhere and drag to the right; this is called swiping right. Alternatively, you can tap the green heart button on their profile.
To fire someone, or “no” them, press anywhere and drag to the left; this is called swiping left. Alternatively, you can tap the red x button on their profile.

Matching happens, as mentioned, when two users swipe right on each other. After this happens and a match has been made, you can go to games tab at the bottom of the interface. Here you can chat with all your matches.
