Accessibility Comments

There are some accessibility issues with this app but they can be dealt with. When setting up the app I had an issue completing my profile. It requires that you answer 3 questions and I answered 2 but after that it would not go back to the list of questions. I did finally get it by turning off Voiceover and tapping randomly on the screen around the questions prompt. It will not let you change your preferences until you complete your profile so some sighted help maybe needed for this step. Since it connects to Facebook it will grab pictures from there and you won’t know which ones it took. I would suggest either using photos from your phone or asking someone sighted to look at the pictures for you.
There are some unlabeled buttons and the 4 tabs are not labeled although Voiceover does say what the possible text for them are. The 1st tab is discover, the 2nd is likes you, 3rd tab is matches, and the 4th tab is settings.
In the discover tab when being presented with a user there are unlike content icons this is not for unliking the person but things you have not liked about them. Once you pick one it will go to a message screen where you can add a message or just send them a like. The fact or question they answered that you like and want to comment on you want the icon after the fact. Lastly it is hard to tell some things such as if they drink, smoke etc. if they do not show all 4 of those questions.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments

The app uses Facebook and I do not know if it can be used if you don’t have one. Each time you open the app it asks to connect to Facebook which can be annoying. I also cannot find a setting to create or change a password.

For those of you who are using hinge, or interested in this app, version 7.24.0 is now available. The what's new description says the usual, bug fixes and improvements, but for voice over users, there have been a lot of improvements to the app. You're now able to read everything, such as age, gender, drinking and smoking preferences, drug use, etc. Take a look at the new version. ☺️
