Tinder may make it easy to decide if a person is hot or not.
But according to Brian Schechter, CEO and cofounder of dating app HowAboutWe, the swipe-centric service is less helpful when it comes to meeting up with someone in the physical world. With the completely redeed app HowAboutWe launched this morning, the service aims to replace the endless swiping and message-swapping with easy access to immediate, real-life dates. Choose the one you like, and the app will send the two of you an introductory text message urging you to pick a time and place to meet.
