Finds Friends in Your Locality

Hinge is a smart iOS application that has gained massive popularity from all across the globe even though currently it is only accessible in specific cities. The developers are working to make the app usable in all continents and cities in the world. One of the most noticeable features about this application is that it has an easy-to-use-interface that is simple to navigate as compared to the conventional networking applications.

The developers have put in place working protocols that are tailored to ensure only real people register and use the app. Hence, you can rest assured that every profile or person you interact with actually exists. The main essence for putting in place this protocol is to protect users from cyber criminals and fraudsters. 

Best Features

One of the highlights that makes Hinge special is that all users are validated before being allowed to interact with other users. This will go a long way in ensuring that you get the best experience and protect your privacy. Some of the details that you will find in each profile include workplace, mutual friends, height, number of friends on Hinge and home address.

The interface is also designed to enable users post profile pictures to make it easy for other users to notice them online. The database is updated on a regular basis whenever new profiles are validated. You do not have to tolerate people who send you unpleasant messages or pictures. There is a “block” icon at the top section of each profile that you can tab to add users to your blacklist.

You can also decide to interact only with mutual friends or people who are in your circles. The choice is all yours. Note that your device has to be connected to a reliable Internet connection to send and receive messages from other users. However, if a member sends you a message while offline, you will still get it once you are online. 



Pros and Cons


  • Displays clear profile pictures
  • Validates all profiles
  • Ability to block and add some of the friends to your circles


  • The app can only work when your device is connected to the Internet

Final Thoughts

Hinge is an awesome app that you can use to socialize with real people in your locality. It is quite easy to use and free of charge.
