Generally BlackBerry doesn’t get to see the big name apps hitting their platform, but knock-offs and look-a-likes are very common. Timber is in good company, joining the ranks of iGrann, Whine, Snap2Chat and Spo2fy. No matter, BlackBerry users will be excited that a third party Tinder client is available from BlackBerry World.
Developed by Nemory Studios, Timber gives BlackBerry users the ability to participate in “a fun new way to connect with new and interesting people around you.” The interface behaves exactly as it does in Tinder: you get the chance to view other users of the app who have signed up (and are in close proximity to you), if you like them you swipe to the right, if you aren’t so keen then swipe to the left. A mutual match (meaning the user chose you as well) will pair you up to begin chatting –and the sky is the limit!
Just like Tinder, Timber requires that you have a Facebook account. The app is free to download, but if you prefer to browse potential matches add-free, you will have to fork over $1.99.
