‘Anti-Tinder’ dating app based on brains rather beauty hides people’s faces and matches users with similar hobbies

Looking for the perfect partner using online dating sites can be like searching for a needle in a haystack.

And while apps such as Tinder allow people to sift through potential dates by looks, a new app lets single people search for love by putting personality first.

Twine Canvas claims to be the first ‘flirting and dating’ app where brains come before beauty. It matches people according to their personalities and interests in the first instance, and only lets them see what their would-be date looks like later on.
