Listen-up singles! Yaletown-based Tingle just launched a new version of its mobile-only dating app and to celebrate we’re giving away two tickets to Vancouver’s biggest Halloween Ball, the 5th Annual Costume Ball at Science World this Saturday, October 29 (sponsored by Tingle and Molson). There will also be a costume contest judged by the discerning eyes of Vancity Buzz and friends, so dress (or undress in the Sexiest category) to impress for cool prizes.
Not part of the Tingle social scene on your smartphone yet? Here’s a quick overview for our flirty readers: Tingle gives people a safe and serendipitous way to connect and communicate with other singles. What does that mean? Tingle never shares your personal information or location, giving users control over who sees them and when they want to be seen. The app features a check-in system to discover people who like similar real-world places. It rewards people with karma points for completing certain activities that improve the community and lets people use karma points to communicate with others. Tingle gives users the most ways to communicate in any dating or social app, including the ability to make permission-based phone calls without revealing a phone number.
