Tingle is a mobile dating application that utilizes location services on your phone and enables you to find matches close to where you are or where you want to be. (That’s our Teleport feature – it’s awesome.)
To start interacting with potential matches – you swipe up (icon). Now, if the potential match also swipes up then our fancy software completes the match and you can now contact each other. You can text, send a private photo, have a phone conversation or even a video chat all for FREE.
Teleport is our way of virtually traveling to any city in the world and start making potential matches with users in that area, before you are even there. So if you happen to be travelling – or looking to make a move – Use the Teleport feature!
We currently have 2 methods to sign up – facebook and telephone sign up (SMS).
We also use Facebook to verify the age, gender, and identity and photos of our users, and to make it easy for them to upload photos already stored on Facebook to their Tingle Profile.
We want to keep Tingle users on their best behaviour — after all, your Mom uses Facebook, and we wouldn’t want you adding photos to Tingle that you wouldn’t want your Mom to see. Facebook is now used by more than a fifth of the people on Planet Earth (and some elsewhere), so odds are pretty good that you are already a Facebook user.
Seriously, though, here are two key reasons why we elected to use Facebook to authenticate users:
- To significantly reduce the number of fraudulent (‘fake’) profiles, and
- To use these networks as a conduit for profile photos, so as to limit the quantity of offensive / lewd photos in profiles
Both were a problem with previous versions of Tingle, requiring excessive resources to combat.

A super-like speeds up the matching process.

– find Match on my Radar (you get a notification when a match is nearby!)
Notifications selections – choose if you’d like to be notified if you have:
– a new Radar match
– new mutual match
– new messages
Here’s a handy screenshot – let us know what you think!
- Team Tingle
Gender preference selection is accessed in the “settings” section of the app.
- Click on “Looking for” – options for Male, Female and Both Male and Female will appear, tap the gender preference you’re looking for.
- Tingle Date will then showcase those singles that fit your browsing preferences and interests.
Radar is a location-based, serendipity discovery feature. Meaning, as you go about your day, Tingle scours any users nearby who based on your interests, might be users you’d like to meet. Getting a Radar notification is our little nudge to encourage you to see who is nearby, send them a message and see if it’s a great match!
In the settings section, you can choose whether to have it on or off. You can also decide if you want notifications about new Radar matches. We encourage you to keep those notifications turned on, otherwise you might miss out on some great people.
We require users to post at least one profile image where their faces are clearly recognizable. If your profile pictures:
- only show your body
- don’t show your face
- are not images of you (ex. celebrities, animals, scenery, drawings)
We will remove them from your profile.
You can have additional images of scenery, animals, etc., but we need at least one picture that clearly shows your face.
When users sign up for Tingle, we automatically send a confirmation email. For some users, this ends up in their junk folder, so they don’t see it. Please add Tingle Date to your address book so you do not miss any informational emails!
Under the SETTINGS menu, there’s a function with an ON/OFF toggle called “CALLING”.
This enables or disables calling… in other words, if you disable this function under SETTINGS, you will not receive incoming call notifications from other Tingle users, and you won’t be able to talk to them using your voice box.
It is sometimes desirable to turn calling off during long intense work days and/or other events where you definitely don’t want to be meeting and getting to know other Tingle users.
That’s almost never, of course, but we made that available to you just in case.
