LOS ANGELES, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tinder for Android has finally arrived. Until now, the world's most popular app for meeting new people was only available to iPhone users on The App Store. After receiving nearly a million requests to make Tinder available for Android users, the company has complied.
"We're excited to finally introduce ourselves to a very large segment of the population that hasn't had the opportunity to experience Tinder yet," says Sean Rad, Tinder CEO and co-founder.
Tinder is a new approach to meeting new people. It gives users control over who they want to connect with so that they are not constantly bombarded with messages or approached by people they don't want to match with. Simply put, Tinder finds out who likes you near by and connects you with them if you're interested, whether it's for dating, friendship or networking.
"We have been experiencing an unbelievable growth trajectory in the U.S. since Tinder's inception and have managed to reach a significant chunk of iPhone users within our target market," says Justin Mateen, Tinder CMO and co-founder. "As we shift our focus to international growth, it only makes sense to launch Tinder for Android, which owns nearly 70% of the smart phone market overseas."
Since its launch in September 2012, Tinder has expanded globally with users in every major country around the world and is currently responsible for 7 billion profile ratings and over 100 million matches between users worldwide.
