The app developers Inertia, LLC have released a new dating app called Blind Fate. The app was launched at the beginning of this month and already boasts 2K users.
Here's how it works: it's a free app (only to the first 5K people, though, so get on on that!). Once you open the app you'll enter your name, age, gender, height, and some other shit. Then you use your finger to move a pink dot (if you're a girl) through a sea of blue dots (if you're into boys) and the app chooses one based on the way you interact with the user interface (I'm fairly convinced it's random and the "user interface" bullshit is just lies. Once your pink/blue dot has been selected you are given the option to chat with that dot (which now has a name) and/or give them a "gift" (they have clever little "gifts" you can pick out to send such as ice cream treats and soccer balls...they're stupid).
In case you're waiting for the part where you finally get to see the person behind the dot, you'll be waiting a while. Or at least until you decide that it's perfectly reasonable to go meet this dot in person. And you're smarter than that, Reader. You're better than that.
Verdict? This app sucks.
