We’ve got some pretty exciting news to announce: type has had a top-to-bottom makeover. And one that’s been designed with you in mind.

So what’s new? Well, here is just a teaser of some of the surprises we’ve got in store:

  • Functionality: it’s now much easier to see who’s Magic Hearted you, and vice versa. This means that your matches are way more optimised than before, and you’ll get a clearer view of who’s got their eye on you so you can start chatting to your type straight away. All you need to do to match with someone that has sent you a Magic Heart is like their profile with a double tap on their photo.
  • Easy view likes: You’ll also see who’s just plain liked your profile in a new, third tab at the top of the home screen – it’s a little thumbs-up icon – so all you need to do is send them a Magic Heart and you’ll match.
  • New threads: we know it’s not all about looks, but it helps, right? This is why we’ve tasked our app designers to make your experience as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Because at the end of the day, it’s nice to look at pretty things.
  • Stricter filters: we get that when you said you had a type, you meant it, which is why we’re developing more rigorous and intelligent filters to make sure that you don’t see any dud matches. These will be coming into full force later next month.

On top of this there are loads of other new details you’ll notice by going on the app yourself and accepting the update.

So what are you waiting for? Take our word for it – with over 6,000 downloads during our soft launch process, your type is waiting on our app. Oh, and expect that number (and the chances of finding your type) to surge when we officially launch in just a few weeks’ time.

Much love,
