Tinder Veterans Launch New App for Indie Bands

By  |  0 Comments

Tinder is one of the most popular dating/hook up apps on the market and due its undeniable success, a co-founder of the app, Christopher Gulczynski and former VP of design, Sarah Nick have come up with a new product called Next.

The new app [Next] is essentially a talent sourcing tool for indie bands. Artists can upload short video clips of their music that can range anywhere from 10 seconds to three minutes. If users love it, they swipe right, if they don’t, they swipe left–like Tinder. If you swipe to the right and want to show even more love to the artist, you can follow them on social media to stay updated.

Here is what co-founder Christopher Gulczynski said:

“Being so close to Tinder, we liked the gamified feeling. The swiping mechanic is just a UI convention that we really like, but the core of it is everyone is given the same amount of attention,” Gulczynski said. “If you get a few swipes left and get knocked off the list, you can upload as many videos as you want to. Got a great idea for a song? Just put it up there.”
