Dating app `Twine` picks matches based on personalities over pictures
New York – A new unique smartphone dating application lets users browse matches based on common interests and not on how they look.
The dating service, Twine, blurs users’ faces so that he can chat and get to know the other person by remaining anonymous, the New York Daily News reported.
However, people can eventually choose to reveal pictures when they’re comfortable and ready to make a connection.
The app works by syncing users’ Facebook contacts and selecting conversation partners who are nearby and have common interests, without revealing pictures of either side of the match.
After texting through the app, lovebirds who click can choose to remove the blur and show their faces.
If a user is not sure of what to say, the app offers suggestions to break the ice.
Since its launch three months ago, Twine, which claims to be ‘the first gender-balanced flirting app’, has been downloaded more than 120,000 times and made more than one million matches.
