A new dating app which uses astrology to determine the compatibility of its users has this week launched out of beta across the United States.
Align is a new unique matchmaking app that generates matches based on the horoscope information of its users, in hope of helping people make more meaningful connections.
Like many popular dating apps, users are required to log in with their personal Facebook profiles, adding their date of births to their Align profiles.
Using this information, Align then determines each user’s star sign and generates a list of traits associated with each sign.
Each user is then asked to choose six of these 12 traits that they feel best describe them as an individual.
These traits are then displayed on their Align profile, with each represented by a different emoji.
Align will then generate a “constellation” of five unique user match for each user ever day, allowing users to view a compatibility report for each match.
Users can also see their level of compatibility with another users by looking at the size of the person’s profile picture in the constellation – the most compatible users will be larger in size.
Similarly to Tinder, two users must choose to like each other’s profiles before they are able to speak through the app’s private messaging feature.
Align first launched in beta in Los Angeles six months ago, and yesterday expanded into New York and San Francisco.
Align 1.0 is now available to download for free on the App Store.
