In July of this year, Tinder revealed another brand new navigational experience for its mobile
app users that are intended to make it more simpler to navigate through profile photographs and
profile content. In the revamped application, photographs now occupy and encompass more
screen real estate – to be precise they reach out further to the edge of your smartphone screen.
It has served to revolutionize how the user base surfs and navigates between photographs and
profiles as the user can now tap on various parts of the screen to explore the photographs and
the content.
Tinder no doubt is credited with the aspect of promoting and making a fashionable vogue and
trend for the "swipe to like" mechanism that now various applications including those
encompassing outside the dating world – have welcomed with a warm reception. However,
related to the app's new venture, swiping is not the focused limelight and is associated with a
lesser priority. You would now be able to navigate in the reverse and forward direction between
photographs all done by tapping. For instance, to move to a given picture, the user would tap on
the right and to navigate in the opposite direction they will have to tap on the left.
Simultaneously, a tap on the base of the photograph will display the user profile, enabling the
user to get more insight about the other person's own content related to the distance and
proximity of how far away they are, their educational profile,the linked associations, their
professionals, Instagram feed, and other data.
This venture will bring the attention of Snapchat to the user base which was embraced sign-
based navigation as an important module of the user experience. In any case, more critically, it
is by all accounts Tinder's method for adopting the well known "Story" design found on
Snapchat, Instagram and somewhere else, given that users are currently able to browse
through images with taps rather than swipes. This operational logic has served to become a
norm and standard for social apps present currently where Facebook and Skype users are
embracing this notion of tappable photo stories.

In any case, the makeover additionally implies that the new Tinder application now makes user
photographs a considerably more noticeable component of the experience of manipulating
Tinder – a move that implies it will keep on being thought of as the 'hot or not' dating mobile
application. While it is implied that the dating app's stand regarding photograph's first attitude is
a piece of its allure, it might be likewise why it can't change its more established and traditional
aspect as a "hookup" application. Competitor dating applications are also fighting back with
regards to Tinder's stance rivals by rather concentrating on connections, as with Hinge, or on
providing a more extensive gander at user's' profiles, as OK Cupid is doing with its photograph
lattice and be more devoted to queries.

Likewise, now that Tinder's interface signifies an impression of being more like a "Story," it
paves the way to the incorporation of video later on, if Tinder prefers that approach and venture.

Past being another approach to change the application's plan and strategy for effective usability,
Tinder clarifies that the navigational change is additionally centered around in the refreshes that
will permit the application to be more adaptable with regards to future design variations at a later
point of time. The development team revamped Tinder's card stack with this new outline, which
will enable the organization to use the new application design to try and emphasize all the more
when rapidly going ahead, as based on Tinder.

Tinder's development team has moved on from Objective-C to Swift on iOS where the shift as
based on Tinder's Engineering Manager Garo Hussenjian had to say, that this is not what iOS
progress is deemed to be.
The resultant product signifies that the framework is noticeably lighter, with clear code and the
swiping method is much more streamlined.
Tinder noted that the user interface updates would be launched globally.
