Looking to use the Hinge dating app on your Windows 8/10 or Mac desktop or laptop computer? In this short tutorial, we’ll show you how it can be done.
Hinge Dating App Review
Hinge is yet another dating app, which launched around the same time as Tinder. While both apps focus on swiping left and right through the various potential matches, Hinge tries to differentiate itself by focusing on matches made from information gathered from Facebook profiles.
The app itself is free, though there is a membership fee that will be assessed after you try it out to get access to the rest of the functionality of the dating app.
The app itself is rated fairly high, a 4.2 out of 5 in the Google Play Store. Users like the user interface and functionality of the app overall, and many prefer it to Tinder. In comparing the user comments and experience to other apps, users seem very pleased with the app. If there are complaints or comments, in general it has to do more with the service and how it is set up than the functionality of the app.
How to start using Hinge on a desktop computer
Until Hinge makes the service available through a browser, the primary way that you can use the Hinge app on a desktop computer is through the use of an Android Emulator. While this sounds tech-heavy, it is actually quite simple to set up.
What you need to do first is to select which emulator you want to download and install on your PC. We like Bluestacks, LDPlayer, and Nox as good options for people who are just getting started using emulators. All of these options are free, and get the job done very well.
Once you’ve selected your emulator, here are the steps to getting started with Hinge on your desktop computer:
- Download and Install the emulator on your desktop computer
- Open the emulator
- Inside the emulator interface, navigate to the Play Store and download Hinge
- Inside the emulator, install Hinge and then open the app
- Log in to your account, and get started swiping left and right.
And that’s it! Have you tried the Hinge dating app? How do you think it compares to the other options available on the market? Let us know what you think in the comments.
