One more awesome thing: If you "pass" on a person, it will ask you why — presumably to make your future matches better suited to you — and then offers you another "free" bagel for the day (sometimes more than one if you continue to hit "pass").

Hinge uses your real-life network (and by "real life" I mean Facebook) to find potential matches that aren't necessarily sketchy strangers.

It has a Tinder-like feature called "Quickmatch" where you can swipe through people nearby — if you both "liked" each other, it lets you know (although you can chat with them either way, unlike on Tinder).

I can't even tell you how much of my life has been spent staring blankly at the Ok Cupid app — trust me, I wouldn't steer you wrong.

The lack of endless matches is both a positive and a negative — it's not as overwhelming as Tinder, but there's also not the possibility for limitless hours of swiping entertainment.

However, you can earn or purchase "coffee beans" that you can use to unlock more matches if you so desire.

CMB functions a little differently than Tinder: You get only one match — called a "bagel" — a day, every day at noon (it sends you a push notification to let you know when it's ready).

Then you can either "accept" or "pass" on this person; if you both accept, then a chat line opens up and stays active for a week.
