4 Apps Inspired by Tinder's Matchmaking Feature

All the interesting things you can be matched up with

Tinder is the widely popular dating app that lets people judge potential matches in their geographical area by their looks and a very brief bio. All you have to do is swipe left on a match you're not interested in or swipe right on a match you like. Other developers took inspiration from Tinder's iconic approach to finding matches and created match-making, Tinder-like apps for almost anything your heart desires. Here are some of our best picks.

What We Like
  • Over 40 genders and sexual identities to choose from.

  • Open-minded community.

What We Don't Like
  • The app has lots of bugs.

  • You need to pay for the sub to see who 'likes' you.

If a traditional relationship or casual cuddling isn't the exciting type of match that you're looking for, there's Feeld, which is basically Tinder for threesomes. It connects you with open-minded couples and singles with similar desires and lifestyles in your area. When you find a match, swipe up. There's even a premium version offered as an upgrade.

What We Like
  • Must be over 50 to join.

  • Good for finding travel companions or group activities.

  • Verification process weeds out scammers and other undesirables.

What We Don't Like
  • You can't do much until you're verified.

  • Not all cities have active communities.

Tinder is a popular choice for young adults looking to meet new people, but what about older, more mature people? Stitch is very similar to Tinder but focuses on a different demographic. It matches older people who are looking for real companionship at whatever stage in life they're at. It also matches people based on other details, like personal interests, for more meaningful connections.

Best Tinder-Like Video Game: Reigns: Her Majesty

OK, so the Reigns series of mobile video games aren't technically matchmaking apps. But, they deserve a spot on this list for the masterful way they incorporate Tinder's "swipe left" design into their gameplay.

In Reigns: Her Majesty, you play a monarch of a medieval kingdom and swipe left or right to make decisions that could have unforeseen consequences later on. Do you choose to forge an alliance with a neighboring kingdom? Do you embrace science or reject it? Do you make friends with the Church or are you at odds? At some point, your monarch meets with an unfortunate fate and you continue as their successor. But how long will your reign last? This game is an addictive narrative puzzler that can keep you happily swiping for hours.
