What is Tinder?

The app that lets you find your match.

By Vinod

Tinder is a dating app.

Defined as a location-based social search mobile app, Tinder lets people connect and chat if there is mutual interest between both parties.

The app uses Facebook to build user profiles, using pictures which have already been uploaded. Potential candidates for users are then generated based on location, mutual friends and common interests. A list of matches is then displayed to the user, who is then able to annonymously browse the potential matches.

If a user swipes right on a potential candidate it means they like that user, a swipe left means that a user passes on the potential match. If two users swipe right on each other they are then able to chat in the app.
