New Friending App Lets You Swipe On Interests to Make Friends

Friendish, available now for iOS download in beta, lets users swipe on interests and connects them with potential friends nearby who’ve swiped on the same interests. The new app aims to make it easier to make friends nearby by connecting people based on interests they have in common.

Founded by Chandra Arthur and Adam Pietrafesa, the pair hopes to solve a problem that people of all ages, sexes and demographics increasingly seem to have, making friends. “Even though we’re more connected than ever, people seem to have a tough time making real offline connections,” says leading founder Chandra. “Our idea for Friendish really was created out of a shared difficulty we experienced in finding friends, and swiping on people’s faces in dating apps just doesn’t tell you enough about a person,” she continues.

Once users have connected in app and swiped on similar interests, they can find those activities in their cities and share offline experiences together. Users are shown potential friends that have 50% or more interests in common and can add friends of either sex. The app has also introduced a GNC selection in settings for users who’d like to identify as gender non conforming.

While the primary goal of the app is for people to make friends, the founders think the app can serve a two fold purpose. “It’s no secret that some of the best relationships are built on solid friendships,” adds Adam. “So while the main goal of the app is to help people connect offline and do things they enjoy together, there is a strong possibility that people will meet and really like each other and begin to develop closer relationships from there.”
