'Cliick' is a new dating app that matches users based on the kinds of news articles they choose to read. While many dating apps allow users to decide who they think they might have something in common with, this app automatically finds those who have similar interests.

Cliick operates as an invite-only system that uses news stories to link users with one another. The app asks each user to specify their age range and what kind of relationship they are looking for. The app then transfers them to a feed where they can browse through different kinds of news articles. The content that appears in the feed is tailored to a user's specific hobbies and interests. Users that show an interest in similar news stories will be matched and given the option to begin chatting. The idea is to use news content as a conversation starter between potential mates.
