Tinder's new online service lets office workers and college students find dates in dull moments.
(CCM) — Tinder now promises to help find hot dates for users while they are stuck behind a desk or in a college lecture. Until now, Tinder has only been available as a smartphone app. Now the company has announced the introduction of Tinder Online, which works on all browsers and computers. "Mobile phones not allowed in class? Just fire up your laptop and swipe incognito. Cubicle life got you down? Now you can toggle between spreadsheets and Super Likes in a flash," Tinder promises on its blog. Instead of swiping photos to the left or right with a finger, with Tinder Online users click on photos using a mouse and drag them to the left or right. Users can log in to Tinder Online through Facebook, but the company is currently testing the ability to log in using text messages in markets where access to Facebook is limited.
Tinder's motivation for launching Tinder Online comes from the fact that many users in some parts of the world do not have data services or sufficient memory on their mobile devices to use Tinder. Tinder Online is currently being tested in a small number of countries including Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Philippines, and Sweden. However, it will be available in the rest of the world soon.
