Get matched with people around you and start a chat, where you can send messages that disappear after being viewed.
Tingle If you're going on vacation and looking to meet singles, Tingle (free on i OS and Android) is the app for you.
Its Teleport feature lets you browse profiles in the city of your choice before you get there, so that you have a hookup buddy on lock before you even get off the plane.
The app lets you swipe for a match in typical Tinder fashion, but also gives you the option of having it set up a date for you, taking out all the annoying, never-ending messages.
You can also filter by relationship intention or pick one of the in-person mixers that other app members have indicated they're going to. The app (free on i OS) is similar to others in that you create an "Ad profile" with photos (you can set them to private or public), and your first name and age.
Or use the app's Radar feature, which notifies you when you're in close proximity to a potential match.
And if you're unsure about taking things offline with a match, Tingle also lets you video and voice chat with matches in real time so you can get to know them better before exchanging digits.
