If you are keeping track of Tinder, you might be interested in knowing that Tinder is now the top grossing app on Apple’s App Store. The reason why Tinder has moved up to the top grossing app on Apple’s App Store has to do with Tinder Gold.
Tinder Gold is the new feature that is found with the Tinder Gold subscription plan. This feature allows you to see those people who have liked you. We have all of the information about Tinder becoming the top grossing app on Apple’s App Store. We also have some new information about Tinder Gold, so keep reading to learn about this new subscription service.
Tinder Now Top Grossing App Thanks to Tinder Gold
The Tinder app is now the top grossing app on Apple’s App Store because of Tinder Gold. The Tinder Gold subscription option just launched this week. It gives you access to the new feature which is allowing you to see who has liked your profile. You might have heard about the new service already due to it being in testing for quite a few months.
After several months of testing this feature in various markets, Tinder finally released the Tinder Gold subscription this week. The subscription is $4.99 per month and it was just launched in America this week. Once it launched in the United States, it immediately caused Tinder to move up to the top grossing app spot on Apple’s App Store.
When it comes to Tinder Gold, it will cost $4.99 per month if you already have Tinder Plus. The Tinder Plus option is $9.99 per month. There have been other options Tinder has tried out in order to get to the top grossing app position, but none of those options worked out. They included options to buy features a la carte, such as the Super Like and Tinder Boost options.
The new feature is specifically called “Like You” and you will enjoy seeing who has liked your profile if you are trying to make matches easier and quicker. The hope, according to Tinder, is that you will be able to match more easily with people, although you still have to swipe right on them in order to communicate.
Tinder Becomes Top Grossing App With Added Subscription
The new Tinder Gold subscription requires that you be a Tinder Plus user. You cannot buy the Gold in Tinder without being a Plus subscriber. If you currently have just the free Tinder version, this means it will cost you $14.99 per month.
This is really why the Tinder app became the top grossing app on Apple’s App Store. Since people who had the free version had to upgrade to the Tinder Plus and then upgrade to the Tinder Gold after becoming a Tinder Plus member. The additional revenue stream with more people getting Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold is really where it is at for the company right now.
Tinder Gold will be coming to Android too, although it will be about a month before that happens. Once that happens, we will see just how much revenue Tinder will really be bringing in. Since this new “Like You” feature is only on iOS right now, it could hinder the revenue abilities of the company.
For now, though, it appears Tinder users are going all in for the Tinder Gold subscription. This app could be the top grossing app on Apple’s App Store for a while as more and more people hear about this new subscription-only Tinder feature.
