For all those single couch potatoes out there, here is a piece of good news – Tinder is now on Apple TV. You heard it right, Tinder, the dating app, will now be forcing you to find your soulmate even while you are watching television, so there is no running away from finding love this Christmas.
Okay, it gets a little weird having it on TV and it is definitely not ‘fun for family’ as many websites have put it; you wouldn’t want mom, dad or that pesky young sibling of yours to be skimming through the various pages of your love life on a huge screen, picking your next date out for you. But it is going to sit there among the list of apps on the Apple Tv, so you can’t really do anything about it. For those who live in a more singular atmosphere, this is your chance of really getting a bigger chance at things. So much for the ‘dynamite swiping experience’.
Tinder insiders have mentioned on various instances that the integration with Apple Tv was to ensure that people got the same swiping experience on a bigger screen as compared to that of the smaller mobile screen. If you are wondering how that will work, then let me tell you, that the app has quite intelligently designed its swiping functions around the Apple TV remote swiping functions, thus giving the user quite a seamless experience. Other functions like the very important ‘Super Like’ function is another activity that has been made possible this way, through the remote.
Messaging, however, will not be available on the TV app. For this, you have to ensure that that you switch to messaging through your phone. To use the application, you will have to visit the app store from your Apple TV, download the Tinder application and log in. To view profiles, you can click the trackpad. Asides, you can swipe left and right to browse through profiles. Use the upward swipe for Super Liking a profile and shake the remote to rewind the swipe.
Tinder is a dating application that lets users pick their matches from various profiles of people all over the globe. This simple to use application is an open to all platform and supports people with most relationship statuses. Very recently, it has opened up to supporting people of different gender preferences and orientations to make it a more unbiased platform. Currently servicing millions worldwide, the application will soon be providing even better online dating services to meet the needs of all people.
