A little while ago I heard of a new app called “My Mate, Your Date” which had more real connections in mind when compared to the instant gratification of most of the other apps. That app has now rebranded and is now known as Quinn, your personal match maker.

Quinn, short for Questions and Insights, sends you a few matches per day based on your answers to a bunch of questions that you chat to Quinn about. You log in using Facebook and it also cross matches you with friends of friends in your Facebook network. It’s still in development stages and at the moment it’s based in London. I had to enter a UK postcode to get through the questions with Quinn but then that can be updated in your profile.

For those of us that are growing increasingly jaded and frustrated by trying to meet someone in a “community” increasingly detatched and focused on anonymous or drug fuelled hookups, this feels like a good step in the right direction. You take the time to answer the questions accurately and you might just be rewarded with a good match. Quinn is available for iOS and will be available for the Android platform soon.
