Rudy Huyn releases 6tindr, an unofficial Tinder app for Windows Phone

Tinder is a very popular iOS app that essentially matches people. It’s primarily used for finding a date or hookup. What’s unique about Tinder versus other dating sites and services? Think of Tinder as a modern Hot or Not site, but one built for the very mobile and app centric world we live in. 

​While there's no official app for Windows Phone, we previously looked at Rudy Huyn, best known around these parts for his work putting out high quality apps in the Windows Phone Store, teasing a client in development. Huyn has now released said unofficial client. Say hello to 6tindr.

For those who haven't used the service before (which is also now officially available for Android), you simply select the gender and ages for matches you’re interested in. You’ll select radius for how far or close you want matches to appear. All that's left to do is to show your interest (or disinterest) in potential matches by swiping those you like to the right and those you don’t to the left.

If you and another Tinder use like each other you’ll be invited to message each other and see if you do hit it off. Sounds fairly straightforward, right? It really is and 6tindr makes it super simple to get started. 

The app itself is gorgeous, as is the case with other apps developed and published by Rudy Huyn. You've got all the functionality you'd expect to see in a Tinder app, including messaging, profiles, inviting other people to the app and more. That's excluding Live Tiles and other Windows Phone features. Overall, we're impressed.

You can grab 6tindr from the Windows Phone Store for free here or scan the QR code below. Let us know your thoughts on the unofficial client in the comments.
