Fridge-Based Dating Apps

Samsung's 'Refrigerdating' Matches People on the Contents of Their Fridge

— March 18, 2019 — Tech
Outside the major dating apps, there are a ton of niche applications that are aimed at helping people to connect over their shared interests in dogs, mindful practices or even mutual disinterests—and Refrigerdating promises to connect people by the contents of their fridge.

Refrigerdating by Samsung gives users the chance to get in touch with "others who have realized that you are what you eat." With this unique approach to dating, users are able to quickly get a glimpse into others' fridges, which can say a lot about one's traits, approach to healthy living or even general organizational skills and preparedness.

With Refrigerdating, Samsung points out some of the best features of its fridges, including Family Hub, the touchscreen that helps with everything for grocery management and communication to entertainment.
