#onlinedating | New Social Media App Curius Takes Swiping In Six Different Directions | #bumble | #tinder | #pof

Most social media users looking for love in the 21st century know the art of smartphone swiping. Scan a profile, glance at a photo, and swish that thumb right to show interest and left to move on to the next human being in a seemingly endless chain.

Online dating app Twitter started the practice, and countless others added the element to their features. Now, a new app looks to take a swipe at that tradition by sending a user’s thumb in six different directions.

Offering six-way swiping, the Curius app employs a new patent pending methodology to enable users to choose from six different areas on the screen to determine the intentions of the user. As with two-way swiping, connections are forged only when the choices of two users match. 

Rather than just making a yes or no/accept or reject decision, Curius users can look to locate people for conversations, make friends, find their better halves, set up a one-night stand, etc.

According to Curius CEO and Founder Harrit Diwan, the concept behind the app took root before he met his wife, Brittney.

“We were really frustrated using the dating apps on the market as the matches we were getting were not even looking for the same thing,” Diwan says. “In a lot of cases, it was a waste of time talking to these matches to realize that their intentions were absolutely different. “

Once they exchanged their vows, the couple turned around to help those less fortunate online daters.

“We decided to solve this problem and hence we came up with the idea of Curius. Instead of just left and right swiping, people swipe in six directions with each representing a unique intention. This provides next-level filtering and matches who are looking for the same result, thus saving a lot of time and frustration.”

Curius is free and available for pre-order on the iOS App Store. It goes live on June 10. On the official publishing date, the app will download automatically onto the new user’s phone.

If that seems like too long a wait, would-be users can visit the Curius home page to download an “Early Access” beta iOS version. An Android Google Play edition will soon follow.
