Desktop Tinder Is Finally Here

Botinder is an unofficial Google Chrome extension that lets you like and dislike Tinder users even faster than you can using the official app.

Botinder also comes equipped with the terrifyingly named “Booster!” function. Select “Like automatically” and Botinder will begin liking every single Tinder user near you. The “Booster!” speed likes multiple people a second, transforming your screen into a blur of smiling selfies. After a couple of minutes of Booster mode, I’d gained 50 new matches. To put that in context, it can take weeks of furious Tinder app usage to get that many matches, but Botinder had accomplished it in minutes.

I like that the app is open enough and that they don’t care enough about security to enable a small constellation of apps to manage/game Tinder.

Tinder will go the way of Chatroulette. but it’s fun to watch the story arc.


The Majority of Americans Are Single

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, and we outnumber married adults for the first time since 1976, when they starting keeping track. The BLS found that there were 124.6 million single Americans in August, which comes out 50.2 percent of the 16-and-over US population. Yes! It’s a small victory, that .2 percent, but suddenly, I feel less alone. For reference, back in 1976, singles only accounted for 37.4 percent of the adult population (womp). There is a caveat, though (because, of course)—in this particular study, “single” means “not married,” so it’s not taking into account how many 16-and-olders are coupled up or in long-time partnerships, but haven’t made that trip down the aisle yet.
