The meaning of "Tinder" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does “I’m a three—a four in ideal lighting“ under Delete Tinder mean?
A: When someone says "I'm a three out of ten." or just "I'm a three." it most likely means that the person is rating himself or herself out of ten based on looks.
So what the quote means is that the person's beauty is usually rated 3 out of 10, but the person's beauty is rated 4 out of 10 when his or her picture is taken in good lighting.
Q: What does Generally speaking, Tinder use sees a spike during the beginning of the New Year (Specifically, 'a spike') mean?
A: It means a rapid increase in this context. If you imagine Tinder usage being measured on a graph over time, there would be a sudden increase (which would look like a spike) in that graph around the beginning of the New Year. Hope that helps :)

Synonyms of "Tinder" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Personally, I prefer to use Bumble than to use Tinder. and Personally, I prefer to use Bumble than Tinder. ?
A: They both mean the same thing. In the first one they are just repeating the verb “use” to make it clear, but that is already used once so it isn’t important.
Examples:
I’d rather ride a bike than ride a horse.
VS
I’d rather ride a bike than a horse.
Both mean the same thing, they just take out the extra verb because it’s already assumed that it’ll apply to both nouns. I don’t need to say “ride” twice because you know the ride applies to the bike and the horse.
