Method 1: Setup

Hi, you are watching VisiHow. Today we are going to show you how to install and get started with the Tinder application. For those of you who do not know, Tinder is a singles app that lets you swipe through, and decide whether or not you like, a particular person's photo. There have been various debates as to whether it is a good app or a bad app but irrespective of that it can, occasionally, be a fun application especially if you just recently broken up with someone. Let's get started!

Steps

  1. 1
    What we are going to do is to tap on the Google Playstore.

  3. 3
    That is going to open your applications area and you can scroll over until you find the Google Playstore, which for me is here - a white brief case with a little Pink Floyd triangle.
    Tap that and it's going to open up the Playstore. We have, obviously, a selection of applications and things here.

  4. 4
    What I want to do is just simply search.
    We are going to search and we are going to type in "tinder" - T-I-N, and we have Tinder right there.

  5. 5
    I've already installed Tinder to save you the pain of waiting through the download.
    What I'm going to do is just tap on Open. Normally, you would tap Install and then once it is installed, you would open it. So let's open that - here's your little fire.

  6. 6
    Now, it's going to tell us "Anonymously "like" or "pass" on people Tinder suggests.
    We can sign in with Facebook. As it says here "We do not post anything to Facebook", it will not post anything to Facebook.

    If someone you like also has liked on you, then it goes to the next one and you can chat with them and say "Hey!
    How is it going? What's happening? How are you?"

  10. 10
    Then if you have some special moments you would like to share; or decided you going to meet in a coffee shop, or whatever - you can do that.

    Give that a moment and Facebook's going to pop up - that's me.
    Now it will tell me that Tinder's going to receive the following information: my public profile, my email address, relationship interests, birthdays, status updates, etc.

  13. 13
    I can choose to edit the information that I provided.
    I can shut down some of that if I don't want to have it in there, but honestly, I'm not too worried about it. I'm just going to tap OK and I'm going to let Tinder do its thing.

  14. 14
    Now, I have to verify my phone number.
    Once my phone number is verified, Tinder will let me go and do my thing. Give me a moment to get that situated and I will be right back. Actually, let me show you how it works.
