Irish dating app Wynk looks to challenge Tinder


A new Irish startup want to change how you hook up

A new Irish startup called Wynk, created by DIT student John Christopher and Trinity student Darragh Mc Kay is looking to get a foot hold in a crowded dating app market.

Their app called Wynk operates in a similar manner to Tinder with swiping but instead of just swiping on a persons image you will also swipe on fun and interesting things to do around you.

The idea here is that you will build connections through common interests as well as what’s in your pants.

It will be difficult for the duo to get traction for Wynk in the crowed space that is the dating scene. Hopefully though with the unique local nature of the app Irish ‘daters’ will jump onboard and give it a go.
