Introducing Taffy: The Dating App that Makes You Work to See Users' Photos

Tap That App is a monthly segment where we feature an app our editors think is cool. 

If you’ve become bored of swiping left and right on photo-based dating apps such as Tinder and Bumble, you may be interested in this month’s featured app: Taffy. 

Profile pictures are blurred on Taffy and you choose who to engage with based on a text description. To set up an account, you’ll need to create a one-line ‘heading’ that says something fun about yourself, such as “I like dogs.” You’ll also be asked to list your interests and your motivation for using the app (hookup, friends, love, advice or chitchat). Taffy will only connect you with users that harbor the same social intentions and goals. 

Once you’ve completed your profile, you can begin browsing and chatting with other users. If a given user’s heading tickles your fancy, you can ‘flip’ their ‘profile card’ to view their interests before starting to chat or bookmark it for future reference.  


As soon as you tap the ‘chat’ icon, a number of suggested conversation starters are offered, including “Want to help me kidnap three puppies?” and “I want our love to be like pi, irrational and never-ending.” The more you chat with someone, the clearer their profile image will become – incentive to quell your shallow side and really get to know someone.

Happy dating!

Taffy is available on iOS devices.
