Tinder is joining the list of tech giants launching lightweight apps to rope in more users. Twitter Lite, and Facebook Lite, and many others, and now Tinder is getting in on the act it says it’s developing a lightweight version of its dating app for emerging markets with spotty connections and cheaper phones.
These smaller apps appeal to users in areas where data usage, bandwidth and storage space is a concern.
“Tinder Lite will be a smaller app to download. It will take less space on your phone, making Tinder more effective, even in more remote areas or regions. And keep in mind, these are regions where data usage still comes at a premium.”
The company hasn’t shared a specific launch date for the app but it’s coming soon.
