Tinder

4.Has search filters
Skout
Tinder
You can search through singles using filters such as age, education, height or even body type. It is useful if you are looking for something specific.
You can benefit from quickly browsing profiles and deciding yes or no – e.g., swiping right to "like" a user, or swiping left to "take a pass.”
When you log in with Facebook, it will let you know if you and another user have communal friends. This is useful if you want to find people connected to your circle, or even to avoid meeting people who are connected to you.
This feature is aimed at creating real life meet ups, and fast. You can use it at events such as a concert, or even at a coffee shop to see if there are any singles about.
You can specify your sexual orientation (e.g. heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual), which can make it easier to find a match.
This feature means you can avoid interacting with someone if you have already had contact in the past – e.g., viewed profiles, favorited or sent messages to each other. This feature can avoid wasting time and also avoid any potential embarrassment.

Notifications
