Dating system software
Rad has stated that the impetus for the app was his observation that "no matter who you are, you feel more comfortable approaching somebody if you know they want you to approach them." He believed that a "double opt-in" system could be created to potentially alleviate that stress.
Rad has also stated that Tinder filled a gap for social sites for meeting strangers, rather than connecting with people a user already knows.
Relationship experts interviewed by the newspaper stated that users used the photographs that come in succession on the app to derive cues as to social status, confidence levels, and personal interests.As of October 2014, the app was processing over one billion swipes per day, producing about twelve million matches per day.The average user would generally spend about an hour and a half on the app each day.Rad and Mateen had known each other since they were 14.They later attended USC together and entered the Internet entrepreneurship field.
