    Help! I can't login:

    1. Check your username and password.
    2. Check if your account hasn't been flagged by Facebook for unauthorized access. This can be done by logging into Facebok using your browser and answer some security questions to make sure you are the one that logged in.
    3. If you use an older Sailfish OS version then you should do an update first before using Sailfinder.

    I just wanted to say thank you that you created such a beautiful app and supported it for so long.

    I hope you will come back to it one day and fix the log-in, there will always be lonely sould out there, no matter the OS they use.

    Hello, thanks for bring us this amazing app, really good job. I just wanted to report a bug, when you type a large message the app cut the end, all time I had to check if was sent the hole text.

    I can not login anymore. :/

    mak_rev's picture

    Its normal that I have to requesr a login code (phone login) every time I close it?

    minitreintje's picture

    Is your phone number verified? it uses Facebook Accountkit to login, if your number is blocked, it will not work.

    Can you login through the web interface of Tinder?

    trial's picture

    Login through Phone doesn't work I do confirm. When making an input, no sms with code is arriving.

    emchella's picture

    Don't  work.


    minitreintje's picture

    Try to login onto the Tinder web client and verify your phone number. This is changed in one of their updates.

    Sailfinder doesn't support that yet and I am not able to add it right now.

    high quality app, keep up the good work! ;)

    On Xperia the signup doesnt work when display mode is dynamic, you cant see Facebook user and password field. Also Tinder now allows Facebook free signup and that should become the default app option

    minitreintje's picture

    I'm working on phone login. Login works fine here on the Xperia X using FB (can you please show some screenshots, maybe on Github?)

    minitreintje's picture

    Login issue will be fixed soonTM. I found a fix :)

    EDIT: It's available!

    SKD's picture

    It doesn't update my position anymore since v4 and sailfish x anymore. i already activated gps and the other positioning service. any solution?

    minitreintje's picture

    It does update your position at launch, it's up to Tinder to accept this though...

    @ launch Sailfinder will try to acquire a position fix (accuracy < 1000m), after 10 updates from the GPS, it will use the best available option when no fix was acquired.

    If you activate GPS and launch Sailfinder then normally you should see that your device is searching for GPS.

    SKD's picture

    It does show the gps icon at the startup but it doesn't update in sailfinder while a map app show the right position. with my old jolla 1 und sailfinder v 3.x this was working. I also found another Bug. My Profile at Sailfinder says I'm 30 while real Tinder says 29 (which is right), I wonder if it shows everyone a year older?

    minitreintje's picture

    Indeed, my age is also off by one, I fixed this in V4.1 (the issue is the birthdate privacy fuzzing which causes the difference).

    I don't understand what you exactly mean with the correct position? Tinder uses now close by points and not the exact location, for example: your real location is somewhere outside of London, Tinder will set your location to the centre of London.

    SKD's picture

    Okay, I didn't know that Tinder isn't working with exact locations, but thats not really the problem. A week ago I went to France (80 km from my hometown in Germany) and although I can't see what position Tinder is currently using I can tell by the fact that every person that is shown has a french profile that I'm somehow "stuck in France" :D

    minitreintje's picture

    Oh I understand what you mean however, I couldn't test this completely but I just follow how Tinder the location update does :p

    I suggest you try the webclient of Tinder and see if the location then updates... If it does, let me know :)

    SKD's picture

    Ah thanks for the advice. This has worked! At least the position is now updated to my hometown again :)

    minitreintje's picture

    Hmmmm then I need to investigate this... Maybe I'm sending the wrong request or something...

    EDIT: Should be fixed in V4.1-2

    SKD's picture

    Is there a possibility in 4.0-1 to open someone's profile page again after a match?

    minitreintje's picture

    Not yet but it's on the roadmap for V4.1 which will be Harbour compatible. I'm waiting on the Sailfish Community meeting for the QtFeedback module in Harbour.

    If that module won't be allowed, I need to make a workaround for Harbour and then I will include the profile for matches too :)

    SKD's picture

    Hi, I installed Sailfinder a few days ago again after not using it for about a year. I did a lot of swiping in the last days but I didn't get a single match. Is there any way to find out if everything is working as it should or if my profile gets shown to other people?

    minitreintje's picture

    It's working fine over here.

    AA1AA's picture

    Matches loading is stuck on 7% and there's nothing I can do to solve the problem. Any tip would be very appreciated :)

    minitreintje's picture

    Have you send GIFs? When sending a lot of GIFs to a match it takes time to download them all to thr local cache

    Anyway, in order to help you better please provide the log files to: dylan(write a point here)van(write a point here)assche(at @ here)protonmail(write a point here)com



    You can find the log files here: /home/nemo/.cache/harbour-sailfinder/logging


    Also clearing the local cache may also help: delete using a filebrowser the following directory: /home/nemo/.cache/harbour-sailfinder
