DNA INFO - Aug 25 - Founder Ari Ackerman is here to help asserts that the app will aid in ensuring the continuity of Jewish identity in generations to come. Unlike popular dating apps such as Tinder, he insists that Tribe is "specifically not a hook up app; it's about making real connections." It's also different from predecessor JDate in that it's free and has an 'Ask Out' option. Like other dating apps, Tribe allows users to swipe left or right to indicate their interest in another user. What makes Tribe unique is that if two users express interest in one another, they can not only message each other but set up a first date as well, providing restaurant, bar and coffee house suggestions located close to where the user's match lives.
