When the Tinder dating app came around, it introduced an unexpectedly brilliant user interaction mechanism. Swipe left to do one thing, swipe right to do another. Whatever Tinder, or another app with such an interface does, it happens super quick and smooth. Apps based on this interface design are usually full of new content that's generated online as we speak. The combination of motion and a never-ending stream of potential dates, fashion items, job adverts, or whatever the app specializes in has the potential to hook you up for hours.
Here are ten apps that successfully exploit the Tinder formula to introduce a different take on job hunting, dating, pet finding, window shopping, and more activities. Most of them are for iOS, but there's the occasional multi-platform app that thrives on Android as well.
