Originally viewed as a “hookup site,” the app shows users nothing more than a profile picture, age, interest and, more recently, education and job status before asking them to swipe right (thumbs up) or left (thumbs down). “It gets people off the couch.” What’s more, Wendy says it’s very male-friendly.
Availability: Mobile application only Cost: Basic app is free, premium version costs .99 for one month and adds minimal perks.
Methodology: Users create minimally detailed profiles with a few photos.
