About

Taffy is a dating/friending application that connects users to people around them - with one twist: Profile pics are blurry until you start a conversation. Our chat-first app let's you thumb through posts with blurry profile pics and catchy headlines. Pics are slow-revealed through active chat. The more you say, the more you see.

Move over Tinder, there is a new app in town and this one is not just about dating. Think Linkedin meets Match only more social. I am only a few days in, but fun so far!

Pros:

New and Fresh Interface

Cons:

We will see

The concept is really great! I can really see myself immersed in the app once more users sign up around me. Can't wait to see how the app will blossom!

Pros:

The UI/UX is very intuitive and the overall theme is aesthetically pleasing.

Cons:

Port to Android would be nice but I am sure it is in the works!

I love the idea, but honestly it's hardly even blurring the photo. In an ideal world, the photo wouldn't be visible at all until you connect with the person. I guarantee that overweight individuals will get significantly less matches than fit people; which in itself destroys the purpose of the app. Even variables like skin color will be clearly visible with the current blurring mechanism. I'd love to match with people completely unbiased, but we all have subconscious biases, and this app is doing virtually nothing to remove those biases.

It's a great idea, but in the current state it's just a slightly different version of tinder.

Pros:

Nice idea

Cons:

Execution could be better

What a great way to get to know people. Pics in the app are actually more blurry than the screen shots here. So, I disagree with the other guy here. They reveal fairly quickly... but yet still require you to have a convo. Reminds me of the days of chat rooms / AIM. Bravo gents!

Pros:

Refreshing alternative with a sense of mystery

Cons:

I don't get to look like an idiot swiping pics in line at Starbucks

I've just been testing this for a few hours today, but really loving the unique approach to dating (and just chatting). It's retro yet fits today's expectations. I really can't deal with superficial dating apps, so I'm all for this. Nice work @johnschenk @nwientge @taffy

Pros:

This is a great idea!

Cons:

Nada

so much fun

Pros:

This is a great idea on an old theme.

Cons:

call me tomorrow

"Tinder exhaustion" is a thing, and this app is the alternative. Real conversations with a hint of game mechanic to keep it fun.

Pros:

A nice alternative to swiping apps

Cons:

Not yet available on Android
