There’s a hot new name on the dating app scene, one that looks to take on Tinder: Fever. Fever is a Facebook-connected dating app where users compete for matches in real time, using visual engagement to connect people. A location-based app, it allows you to view someone’s photos by tapping and holding. The longer you hold and view that person’s photos, the closer you get to chatting with them.
Fever takes your taps and holds and converts them into popularity data. The more popular a person is on Fever, the higher their temperature level and the longer everyone else has to hold their photos to chat with them. Temperature levels change in real time, so users have to constantly interact with the app to make a connection. If a competing user turns up the heat more than you do, your chances of chatting start to fizzle out and you have to turn up the heat yourself.
Fever also offers a $0.99 in-app purchase called Warp Speed that gives you a 24-hour advantage in turning up the heat even faster. Want to chat with others “super duper fast?” Make the in-app purchase and get an edge on the competition.
The Fever app is available on the App Store as a free download.
