Sometime life is too easy. Tinder especially so. We aim to change that.

What it does

When Tinder recommends potential matches for you, instead of swiping right away, you have to fight for your right to swipe!

How we built it

Tinder's API is private, but still accessible. We developed our own REST-based applikation on top of it, to track your wins and losses. The API runs on on an AWS EC2 instance, and the battlelogs are stored in a DynamoDB table.

Challenges we ran into

We wanted to implement push-notifications, but that turned out to be more cumbersome than we thought.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We actually made a working app.

What we learned

We learned how to make an iOS app in Swift. That's cool.

What's next for PokeTinder

Going to the repo graveyard.
