Pronounced ‘thrinder’, there is no doubting where the inspiration for this app started and it is a good copy of the popular dating app, Tinder.However, the big difference here is that instead of hooking up with just one person, 3nder lets you select more; a threesome sex dating app.
Good for: Women being in charge With the universal ‘swipe-right’ indicating a match on this image based hook-up app, mutual matches are only started when the woman makes the first move.
If you don’t get a reply within 24 hours then the connection is removed permanently.
Good for: Facebook networking with good privacy Created by the same designers as the popular gay hook-up app, Grindr, Blendr uses Facebook to enable social discovery of people in your location, interested in casual encounters.
The app uses GPS location services and a basic profile to allow people to select their choice of ‘match’.
There are obvious privacy issues about being discreet but if you don’t mind (or even because you know a friend of a friend you have your eye on) then Down is a great app.
Good for: Movie match-making booty calls Since the term was first used in a tweet in 2009, Netflix and Chill has become a popular euphemism for a booty call and this app is designed to offers users just that.Disckreet is sort of like a cross between Snapchat and Dropbox; a confidential place to store the most intimate of images, videos and files.To access the files both you and your partner must enter a passcode.Styled on Tinder and a way to utilise social networking for good use, Down is another app that lets you connect to both people who are using the same app nearby as well as integrating with your extended Facebook network.The app is self-styled as your ‘wingman’ and allows you to express an interest in people based on their basic profile and state whether you want to ‘date’ or get ‘down’ with; if someone expresses the same preference based on your profile then the rest is up (or down) to you. The Down app is well designed and the Facebook integration makes it simple and easy to use.Did you know that your phone or tablet could replace your wingman when it comes to finding a quick hook up?
