Tinder for People Who Work Out?

The new dating app Sweatt has an algorithm which matches “people based on how often and when they work out, what their favorite classes or activities are, and any sort of diet preference”.

According to the creator of the app, Dan Ilani, this isn’t just a “hook up app”. This may potentially be difficult to prevent from occurring, however, given the prevalence of the hook-up culture.

What do you think about the new app? Will it be successful as Tinder?

  1. After reading the attached article I was very skeptical of “Sweatt.” More commonly, new dating apps are being released and most of them, if not 90 percent of them of them, are variations on Tinder. Why is this app any different?

    “What I realized was missing from the experience was not just finding people with shared interests, but really people with a shared mindset. That’s an interesting filter that is harder to come by” – Dani Ilani, Founder of Sweatt.

    As of February 2016, the most popular social media sites used by teenage and young adult internet users in the United States included Instagram ranked #3 and Tinder ranked #12. The unique difference to the Sweatt user is a strong emphasis on cleanliness and aesthetics. In a sense, the app is quite similar to both Tinder and Instagram which are clearly shown to be two of the most popular social media apps teenagers use.

    Therefore, I very well believe that this app could be notably successful in the future due to the popularity of its similar competitors. It is also a place for users to share their fitness-focused lifestyles with people who also take part in working out. More now than ever, fitness has become a lifestyle. This app will initiate or encourage two people to come together who understand and appreciate one another’s routine.

  2. I find this app quite a ridiculous… I didn’t know that people that worked out cared that much about meeting someone with a similar schedule and routine.

    I feel like as it caters to a smaller demographic than Tinder does (since it is made for those that workout), it will not be nearly as successful as Tinder. Also, in a certain sense, Tinder stands as the umbrella company and all these copy-cat/branch platforms will fall under the success of Tinder.
