These days, there seem to be apps for everything — dating, adventure-seekers, and book-lovers. Perhaps you’ve tried Meetup groups, but they’re too intimidating or have too many members — you just want something more low-key.And, yes, you can “befriend” people on dating apps, but if the initial intent was to date, a “friend” from there may have ulterior motives.A matchmaker can even see when the pair reveals their identities to each other, which is the ultimate reward. “And the story continues.” Gu drew much of his inspiration for this app from real life.Matchmakers instantly see the results of their efforts. “Inspiration for Hitch really came from personal experience.” or “Going to a concert tonight.” Then, just like with regular Tinder, let the matching begin.Once your group matches with another group, you can start messaging each other, which looks a lot like a group text.Then, just start looking for like-minded sports aficionados based on their interest(s), location, and skill level.After meeting up with others, you rate them on a scale of one to five “knuckles,” an icon that looks like a fist, based on their athletic ability.

“Hitch is not an app that offers countless potential matches — it depends on your friends’ choices. A friend’s advice over randomness.” You can download the app for i Phone here.
