Mood Board Dating App Lets Users Compare Personalities Rather Than Pics
Twine Canvas lets users browse prospective dates by looking at their interests, rather than a personal photo.
Twine Canvas is a dating app for iOS by mobile app developer Spoonjuice that aims to connect users ‘with people based on interests, not just looks.’ The app, released January 30th, functions similarly to the popular dating (or hook-up) app Tinder, in that users swipe through profiles and either like or reject a profile; matches are made when mutual ‘likes’ occur. But unlike Tinder, users of Twine Canvas do not base their judgement on a photo of the potential date. Instead, profiles are a collection of images (called a canvas) that the user selects and compiles to reflect their personality and interests.
Photos can be pulled from a user’s Facebook photos, personal photo library, or by taking new photos. Any images can be used that don’t show the user’s face; personal photos are only revealed to those who mutually like each others’ mood boards. Another unique aspect of Twine Canvas is the patent-pending feature called ICE Breaker, which suggests topics to initiate conversation based on the user’s interests.
