In response to demand, the creators of Grindr have created a similar app that is aimed at straight people, called Blendr. However, besides the difference in target market, will there be a fundamental difference in how the two apps are used? I’ll let the Taiwanese news animators explain their not so subtle take on it:
The American coffee giant Starbucks announced this week that customers with iPhone and Blackberry smartphones can now download an application to purchase their daily fix. The app will display a bar code that the barista can scan and voila, off you go. How much longer until cards are rendered obsolete?
Yes, yes, settle down… It has arrived, shortly after the radical success of the iPhone app, comes this, the 2oceansvibe Blackberry app. You must be beside yourself! Now you can finally tune-in to 2oceansvibe Radio with just one click on your ‘BB.’ Then all you do is plug it into your car the same way you would an iPod. Welcome to the future.
