Well This gives ‘Meat Spin’ a New Meaning

The internet is a sinister place people, only very hardened folk delve into what the internet has to offer and make it out unscathed… well mostly. I won’t name it directly, but who remembers the horrible trolling event when dual female participants organised something down right nasty with a plastic drinking utensil?

Now you have that image in your mind, take a look at this.

That most definitely gives a new meaning to ‘meating people’. Tender is the lazy man’s version of Tinder. Want to ‘meat’ a new companion, share your love of meat, but can’t be bothered staring at a screen while you swipe right? This could be the machine for you. At least you can use this as a first date ice breaker.

From the video, it is unclear whether this machine has a name or even if it has any technology inside (I’m pretty sure there’s someone crouched behind the machine in the first shot). Someone please let me know if there is a name for this, I would like to shake the crazy person’s hand.

Does anyone still use Tinder? Let us know in the comments.

Tinder Adds Instagram Support so You Can Share Your Most Private Videos with Strangers

Tinder made quite a bit of progress lately, especially on its subscription side. However, the Facebook integration doesn’t seem to be enough for the company, which now aims to roll out a new update that adds Instagram support to its growing ‘swipy’ world.

The latest Tinder update is said to let you swipe through Instagram photos, with support of up to 34 photos and videos for each account. The company has even integrated so as to redirect you to the person’s Instagram profile upon tapping a picture, providing he or she has the profile public.

Instagram is said to provide Tinder users with a better overview of how socially connected you are to the person you are about to swipe. Up until now, the Facebook integration showed you the friends you have in common with the person you are viewing, but it wasn’t enough to get you a match. Tinder aims to bring a more detailed feature that lets you have a glimpse of who that person is and hopes to bring better matches in the future.

Tinder has also announced that the integration will be available for both free and pro subscribers, so if you either use the app just for a laugh or hope to find your other half, you can still fiddle with the company’s latest feature. But let’s be honest about it, who uses Tinder as a professional dating app? Do you?

Tinder Plus Set to Launch This Monday

It looks like a new version of the Tinder app is set to launch on Monday. Bearing the name of Tinder Plus, the app is said to include some new features compared to the free version at a $9.99 price tag.

There is also mention of a subscription package within the app, leading to the conclusion that Tinder is yet again trying to set a new pricing structure. So far, the current version of the app is known to include subscription packages ranging from $0.99 to $19.99 per month.

A subscription to Tinder Plus is said to grant the user the Rewind feature, granting him or her the ability to reverse previous left swipes. The Passport feature seems to come in the new version as well, expanding a user’s searches beyond the current geographical location set by the smartphone.

Tinder Co-Founder Returns With New Dating App

Tinder’s former Vice President of Marketing, Whitney Wolfe, was forced from the company she co-founded after filing a sexual harassment lawsuit against her colleagues earlier this year. Tinder recently settled out of court to the tune of $1 million. Now Wolfe is back with her own rival dating app, Bumble, created with the help of two former Tinder staff, Chris Gulczynski and Sarah Mick.

In a cheeky jibe at Wolfe’s former company, Bumble describes itself as not full of “creepy guys and cheesy pick up lines,” and aims to promote a “safe and respectful community”. The app creates matches for its users through more “relevant signals than other, more shallow apps.”

Though there is no concrete release date for Bumble, it is expected to arrive soon.
