Tinder for the first time became the top-grossing app in Apple's online shop, topping the likes of Netflix, Pandora and hit mobile games like "Clash Royale."
Tinder wore the crown as the top money-making app at the App Store, according to rankings posted online by market data firm App Annie on Friday.
Tinder, which made its debut five years ago, lets people swipe left or right on profiles to indicate those that they like as possible date partners.
The dating application's ascension to the top came quickly after it announced this week the worldwide roll-out of a new "Gold" service with features including the ability of subscribers to see who out there has "liked" them.
