tinder android wearWe’re sure many of you guys have heard of the dating app called Tinder. In case you haven’t, it’s basically an app that scans for Tinder users who might be near to you (depending on your settings) and will display their profile. You can then either choose to swipe to the left or right to dislike or like their profile.


What makes it different from other dating websites or apps is that users can only message one another if they have both liked each other’s profile, so at the very least there is some mutual attraction to get the ball rolling. Now Interestingly enough the developers thought that it was prudent to release a version of Tinder for Android Wear devices.

What this means is that if you own either the LG G Watch or the Samsung Gear Live, you will be able to use the app on your smartwatch to swipe left or right to check out people around you, all from the convenience of your wrist! We have to admit it is a bit of a novel concept but hey, why not?

According to the folks at Phandroid, they claim that the app works pretty well on Android Wear. They tested it with the LG G Watch and found that it runs well, although launch times are a bit slow and it was annoying how the app kept closing whenever the screen dimmed. In any case if you’d like to check out the app for your smartwatch, head on over to the Google Play Store for the download.
