One million people have now paid for Tinder Plus

Dating app Tinder has revealed one million users have taken up the option of paying for the Plus version of the app, allowing for unlimited swipes.

According to estimates, Tinder has around 50 million active users, more than 10 million of which use the app every day. More than 1.4 billion swipes take place every day, while over 10 billion matches have so far been made.
