For $ 9.99 a month, those accidental left swipes that left you questioning whether you missed your one shot at everlasting romance –or at least a good night out- don’t have to be a problem anymore.

The number one relationship turned hookup extraordinaire app, Tinder, announced Monday that it had officially launched a premium version of the service called Tinder Plus.

One of the biggest benefits that the company promotes in both their official press release and in their promotional video is the idea that if you wanted to swipe right and match yourself up with a potential partner, but swiped the wrong way and passed on him or her, the action can now be reversed through the “Undo” function.

It’s been a problem that users have complained about before to Tinder and the company appears to have not only listened, but found a way to profit off the upgrade as well.

That’s not the only addition, though. In Plus, the company has also introduced a “Passport” function.

“Passport lets you change your location to match with people around the world,” the official release stated. “Swipe, match and chat with Tinder users in a destination of your choice. Navigate between your current location and new destinations.”

Even though the premium version of the app was just announced, the company has already taken some heat for its decision to charge people in Britain over the age of 28 a higher subscription fee.

Those under 28 will pay four pounds a month while those over 28 will pay 14 pounds a month.

Some critics and users have called the decision utterly sexist, and Tinder has yet to respond to questions from various newspapers including The Guardian as to why they introduced two different price tags.

Tinder Plus is available to download right now for Apple and Android devices.
