Get the pen ready, because we’re about to check off another official app coming to Windows Phone. Rudy Huyn released 6tindr a little over a week ago. It was an unofficial Tinder client for Windows Phone that was quickly met with praise. It was pulled two days later after Tinder filed a complaint with Microsoft. How’s this good news? Because Rudy just got off the phone with the folks behind Tinder and will be working with them to bring an official app to Windows Phone.
We just spoke to Rudy and he informed us that he’ll be working with Tinder to make an official app on Windows Phone. That means 6tindr is dead for the time being, but the efforts of Rudy will now give us an official app. Rudy’s, of course, very happy about the ordeal. He started working on his “6apps” (6sec, 6snap, 6tag, etc) to show companies that Windows Phone users are motivated to have these apps. He considers them a success if he can help bring official apps to the platform.
Of course anyone would be impressed with what Rudy was able to with 6tindr. From start to Windows Phone Store the process took him 10 days. That’s in addition to still working and providing updates to his other apps like 6snap and 6tag.
We’ll keep you updated on any developments with the official Tinder app for Windows Phone. In the meantime someone send Rudy a beer or two.
