More of a flirting app, then a full-on dating service, Tinder is getting an overhaul today in the Google Play Store. The first major update since we first told you about the app back in July, the update brings a brand spanking new UI along with user-created lists to help organizes matches.
For those unaware, Tinder works almost like speed-dating, where initial attraction is paramount in deciding matches. Users are presented with the profile pictures of men/women where they can quickly select “yes” or “no”, speeding through hundreds of users based on specified age or location. If someone you’ve liked likes you back, it will create a match and you’ll then be permitted to message that person. Because Facebook is a requirement to play, there’s some level of comfort knowing (at least some) of your matches are actual people.
Because things can get a little crowded, Tinder has made it possible to group matches into their newly created lists page. Lists can be named anything you’d like, from “Easy chicks”, to “Potential Love Interests”. Whether you’re looking for love or new friends, Tinder is a super fun app and you can download it for free right now on the Google Play Store.
