BUSINESS INSIDER - Feb 14 - Dindr was an app that was supposed to make it easier to meet friends at restaurants for dinner. But when the cofounder discovered that people were secretly using it for meeting love interests and making dates, he retooled it as a sort of speed dating app. Users swipe through potential matches, which is based in part on their foods preferences. Then, twice a day at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., everyone logs on for a six-minute round of chatting. Users get to chat with one match at a time with a short window to make plans or move on. If no plans are made, they can you meet another person. Dindr now has about 3,500 users worldwide including 1,400 people who downloaded the app in the month since it was relaunched as a dating app. About 100 people are joining every day.
