The “Tinder for Snapchat”

Hoop, an app that looks like Tinder but works for finding new friends on Snapchat, hit the number two spot on the App Store charts this month.

Why you should care: Hoop was created with Snap Kit, Snapchat’s developer tool kit that lets makers integrate Snapchat’s features (Bitmoji, Stories, Ads, etc.) into their own apps. We’ve seen Snap Kit catapult other apps — namely, Yolo — to the top of the App Store and into the internet zeitgeist among teens.

Hoop ultimately works a lot like Tinder (or Bumble or Hinge) and prompts users to swipe to connect with new people, who they can then message over Snapchat. Hoops makes you spend “diamonds” in the app if you want to reach out to people. After a certain amount of requests to chat, you can earn more diamonds by sharing and inviting friends to Hoop. The idea, of course, is to ultimately drive more users to Snapchat.

Hoop reportedly has more than 3 million downloads so far. Would you use it?

Some other apps integrated with Snap Kit:

👻 Brb

👻 Wavechat

👻 Stickered

👻 Wishbone 

👻 WYA 

👻 TOKO

👻 PicsArt

👻 Squad
