Lounger is Like Tinder, But for the Airport Crowd

Tinder isn't just for the super market, beach, gym, school, night clubs, your living room, etc. anymore. The new place to meet people using an app on your phone? The airport. The new Lounger app is being calloed "Tinder for frequent flyers" and connects travelers in airport lounges.

The Huffington Post says the idea for the app came from trends one of the co-founders noticed in airport lounges around the world. She said she would always try to make eye contact in airport lounges to encourage conversation to kill time, which could get awkward. She believes that introducing people to random strangers in the airport, whether for simply conversation or possibly romance, could make flying more exciting.

The video for it is kind of weird. For instance, why are there only three people in the airport? Oh well, if anyone tries it, let us know.
