Tinder is among the first "swiping apps", where the user uses a swiping motion to choose between the photos of other users: swiping right for potentially good matches and swiping left on a photo to move to the next one.
The app notifies the user if they have been Super Liked with a blue border that surrounds the profile of the person who Super Liked them.
It then allows the user to either swipe right or left.
