More of a small startup compared to its and Ok Cupid competition, Meet Moi may not boast as large an audience, but its select participation may actually work in its favor.The company’s goal is to “strip down dating to what's essential — the introduction.” By showing you nearby singles who meet your dating criteria, Meet Moi hopes to lead you to a real-life connection.There may be, at most, a line or two of personal description ("Always down to binge on Netflix," "I say YES to life! You swipe left to reject and move on to the next photo, or swipe right to express a liking, at which point you message the other or "keep playing," in the app's gamelike jargon.And thanks to the GPS connection, you know instantly if that guy with the come-hither eyes or the girl with the plunging neckline is just a block away.Instead of seeing someone’s picture in the app before trying to find them in the room (damn those group photo shots!), you’re more likely to see them in the flesh first, and you turn to the app to find their profile and indicate your interest.
But most of the time, the Tinder experience will consist of flicking through profiles like channels on the television.Tinder actually has one of the best user interfaces of any dating app around.The photos are large, the app is — comparatively speaking — svelte, and setting up your profile is pretty painless. Also, no one can message you unless you have also expressed an interest in them, which means you get no unsolicited messages.Mingleton is also similar to Catalyst, except the latter uses the check-in model (like Foursquare), as opposed to BLE.The idea of tapping into BLE flips the idea of mobile dating apps on its head.
