There are some apps out there making strides, emphasizing actual, in-person interaction from the get-go. Case in point: Doppler Social App.
As with apps like Tinder and Bumble, people tend to match and then talk for a while before coming up with a seemingly endless stream of excuses to not actually meet up. That’s where Doppler comes in. The app is basically designed to match up people based off of events nearby their location(s) that they can then attend together.
Doppler Social App is a mobile application that uses an interactive heat map that encourages users to connect offline through trending scenes and events.
