The Weeknd False Alarm
Tinder for Music

We're a world of swipers, aren't we? Tinder is, essentially, our way of meeting people; it's our dating pool. And, regardless what you think about the mobile dating app, it can be pretty addictive. Swiping right and left on your phone has never been so satisfying.

However, if you're anything like us, you'll have about 200 'matches' and be speaking to about 3 of them. It's a fact of life. 

But what if there was a Tinder for music? What if you could open an app and, rather than painstakingly scroll through your entire library you could just swipe right and left to add songs to a playlist? Well that is now a thing and it looks very good. 

Called Fab.fm, the app uses a Tinder-like interface (obvs) where you can swipe right to add a song to a playlist and left to, y'know, reject it. 

According to musically, the web-based app then gives you the option to export your playlist to Spotify, with more streaming services coming soon.

We've got wild dreams of creating a 'blind' playlist, where you swipe without knowing what you're adding. You could share them and it'd be, like, the best music discovery thing EVER.
