You can use Tinder anytime and anywhere, although just like restaurants and bars and clubs, there is a peak time when the most people might be using it at once. For example during the middle of the week in the afternoon, chances are there might be less people swiping through the app compared to a Friday night when people might be looking for a date.


Of course this isn’t necessarily a guarantee, which is why Tinder has announced that they will be introducing a new feature called Swipe Surge that will let users know when it is the best time to start using the app. This feature is currently a test on iOS devices so not all users will see it yet, but presumably pending positive feedback it should eventually find its way to all devices.

According to Tinder, “During a Swipe Surge, activity is up to 15x higher! And with that many more people at the party, your match-making potential is increased by 250%, which means you’ll also spark up a new convo with a cutie 33% faster — so keep your witty banter, and your phone charged.”

Tinder adds, “A Swipe Surge can happen at anytime, so turn on your push notifications for real-time updates that will tell you when it’s go-time. Next, just open Tinder, and settle in because the fun can last for minutes or hours. People who’ve already joined the Swipe Surge will jump to the front of the line, and we’ll even show you who’s currently active.”
