New Dating app Twine Canvas Launches in Time for Valentine’s Day

Tired of the selfies you see populating dating apps like Tinder? Would you like to know a little more about the person before you start messaging? The folks behind Twine Canvas think you do.

The free new app allows you to create a visual “canvas” of pictures that show your interests and hobbies, rather than revealing photos of yourself to attract someone’s attention. The idea behind this is simple: it allows people to begin to engage on a deeper level than just a superficial selfie or headshot – marketers are labeling it as the “anti meat-market app.”

Twine Canvas is a brand new app, separate from the original Twine, also created by developer Sourcebits. After studying user feedback, the company decided to create a new app altogether rather than just revamping the old app.
