AILSA CHANG, HOST:
okay. Today on All Tech Considered – a battle that is all-out the field of internet dating.
(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)
CHANG: if you are to locate love, you’re not likely to find any – at the least maybe not amongst the apps Bumble and Tinder. You may understand how these apps work. You appear at a person’s picture, and you also either swipe kept or swipe right. Well, Bumble and Tinder are now actually fighting in court over whether Bumble swiped some ideas from Tinder. NPR’s Camila Domonoske describes that this battle raises questions regarding exactly exactly exactly how patents work with the online world age.
CAMILA DOMONOSKE, BYLINE: Shauna O’Hara has tried a true quantity of dating apps.
SHAUNA O’HARA: you will find lots of those, and they are all equally terrible.
DOMONOSKE: Dating is difficult, but utilising the apps is pretty simple. Both in Bumble and Tinder, users see an image of the date that is possible.
