'Hey! VINA' is a new app that uses a Tinder-style interface to help women make new friends. While apps already serve as a useful tool for meeting potential dates, it seems only natural that the same technology would be used to help consumers connect with new friends.

Hey! VINA is similar to Tinder in that users can browse through different pictures and profiles of those within their area. However, the app goes beyond this basic interface with a matching algorithm that takes into consideration information such as mutual friends, proximity and data collected from quizzes within the app. The idea behind the app is to help modern women, specifically Millennials, expand their social circle by using technology that they are already familiar with.
