This isn’t the case with every profile, but swipe around long enough on The Grade and you’ll see the pattern emerge.One of the nicest things about The Grade is it gives you stats about how often you are liked when each profile picture is displayed.It then compares that against the average likes for people of your age and gender, so you know how you’re doing against the competition.This allows you to keep testing new profile pictures until one finally (hopefully) works, shortening the head-scratching period that accompanies almost every other dating app.“The profile grade is simply based on how much of your profile you've filled out and also how often you're getting liked,” Lerner said, before citing some common problems people run into.“They either have pictures that don't tell anything about their personality,” he said. And they don't write anything interesting about themselves.”Competing against established players like Tinder and Hinge, it’s hard to tell if The Grade’s approach will be enough to give it an entry into the competitive online dating space.
Anyone who’s been on an online date knows surprises come with the territory. A year-old dating app called The Grade is trying to eliminate surprises and keep people honest.It’ll ask each person individually if they ended up going out with that match and whether that person is the “type of person they’d like to see again.” That response is then used to further hone Hinge’s matching algorithm.(It also remains confidential.) The feature works similarly to Hinge’s “Most Compatible” feature by relying on other users’ feedback and similarities to make suggestions.Hinge is launching a new feature today called We Met, which will let users rate their dates.We Met will pop up a few days after a match exchanges phone numbers.
