Swipe after swipe after swipe. I know I’m not the only one who has been diagnosed with a mild case of thumb arthritis. People’s main gripe with Tinder is that it’s a time suck. The seemingly endless stream of suitors can be a blessing and a curse. A blessing in that it casts a wide net for your 3.5 inch bait, the curse in that you’re swiping so long and mindlessly that you miss your grandmother’s funeral.
Tinder has incorporated a new feature to remedy this conundrum, by letting you see who has liked you before you even start swiping. The new update went live in the states on August 29.
It looks a little something like this:
Good news, no? Ready for the bad news? Nothing in life is free.
The update will come as a feature in Tinder’s new subscription tier called, “Tinder Gold.”
Tinder Gold is a lot like Tinder Plus in that it allows you to undo any swipe you’ve done, change your location and swipe through people who live in another area, give unlimited likes, and extra super likes. Tinder Gold has all that plus:
- Monthly Boost: This lets you “skip the line” and become one of the most seen profiles in your area for 30 minutes.
- More profile controls: Maybe filter who gets to see your card or something? This isn’t clearly defined.
- Likes You feature: The big draw to Tinder Gold. This feature lets you see who has swiped you right so you can pick and choose from the people who like you. [via Life Hacker]
The price for Tinder Gold is a monthly fee of $4.99, making it a cheaper, better version of Tinder Plus.
Good news for all you single bros out there who were looking to pick up a hobby but were handcuffed to your phones.
