Snap Interactive have released a new Tinder-style standalone app called Mutually.
Mutually lets singles swipe through nearby users, with each potential match coming with a compatibility rating.
If you swipe down on each profile, you get more information on the user, including mutual friends and a breakdown of your compatibility.
Their site explains what the compatibility is based on:
“Our smart algorithm generates a compatibility score between you and everyone you see. The score is based on 3 main criteria: location, common interest/areas of interest, mutual friends, and a very powerful “magic” algorithm. What is magic, you ask? We can’t reveal all of it, but it takes into account age, popularity, etc.”
Like Tinder, if you both like each other, you can start chatting.
However in their latest version, Mutually have added an interesting feature called Close By.
This is more in line with messaging services like Chinese app Momo, and it lets you know when your matches are close by.
Something that Tinder users complain about is that your matches are not ordered in any way, so you often lose track and forget about them once the conversation dries up.
This is one of the reasons the IAC-owned app launched the photo-sharing feature Moments.
It’s a simple feature, but one that might make you reconnect with matches you’ve forgotten about, if you are notified when you are out and about.
Another nice feature is the ability to “go-back” if you swipe past someone accidentally, or hurriedly.
The app is currently available in New York and London.
