Tinder: Hot or Not

10 Oct

Tinder is a new kind of app. It’s a way of connecting with other people on a whole different level. You can use it as a serious business, or just for fun.

After installing the app, you have to log in with your Facebook account. From this, the app gathers some personal information about you, so it can connect you to the Tinder network. Now it’s your turn. On the screen you see some photos with information of people who could be your possible match. If you like the person you see, you can ‘like’ him or her. If the other person ‘likes’ you too, you could start a chat session, which could lead to a possible date. If you don’t like the person you see, you could just ‘skip’ the person. So, this might be an opportunity to find your perfect match!

 Why is it cool?

I think this app is a cool way to get in touch with people. If you’re a little shy and scared to approach people or just talk to them, this could be a great way to take a first step. You can easily choose people you are attractive to, so there won’t be any creepy guys talking to you. And if you find a possible match, it might be ending in a relationship.

Why has it future growth potential?

This app has future growth potential, because people with lower social skills have the opportunity to get in touch with other people to. For some people it’s a serious chance, but others see it as a way to check out who’s hot or not. You see, there is a positive side on the app for many sorts of people!

A smartphone these days only lasts a few years, if you’re lucky, before it breaks or isn’t longer in use. If only a part of the phone is broken, yet we throw away the whole phone, because in most cases, it’s impossible to repair that part of the phone that’s broken. Now, this problem can be solved.

What is it?

Phonebloks is a new kind of phone. It’s made of several bloks, which you can dismantle. When one part of your phone breaks, you can easily replace the broken part with another.

You can buy new bloks in the store, where you could also sell your old blogs and read reviews from other users.

It is your choice how to compose your phone. You can buy a pre-assembled phone, or assemble it with bloks from brands you want to support. It’s all up to you.

Why is it cool?

Phonebloks is a really cool device, because it is a really smart solution for many broken phones. Now you don’t have to throw away your phone anymore if only one part doesn’t work. You can easily replace the broken part, so your phone lasts way longer. Also, it’s cheaper than buying a new phone every once in a while. I think that especially young people, will think it’s a cool device, because they save lots of money with it!

Why has it future growth potential?

Lately, people would rather save their money than spend it. Phonebloks is a way to support this idea. By replacing the broken parts of your phone, you are saving money because you don’t have to buy a whole new phone. I think I’m not the only one who thinks this is a great idea, so in the future, this device might be a great success.
