Take an object.
Do something to it.
Do something else to it.
Do something else to it.

Jasper Johns


...is a mantra this generation's makers have taken to heart, repurposing successful elements of blockbuster apps to kickstart their own efforts.

Assorted examples below...
 

Twists on Tinder 

Tinder has put the thumb back in vogue as the new weapon of choice for rapid-fire decision making. Here are a few apps that have upcycled the thumbswipe for other quick sifting activities:

FLIC

Declutter your camera roll
getflic.com

TWINDR

Sort the tweeps from the twits 
twindr.me

Bonus!


TIMBER

Tinder for Lumbersexuals* 
 
"Ruggedly strong men that could go backpacking this weekend if they wanted but can also sit at a laptop all day coding or researching the interweb's most pressing cat videos." 
(urbandictionary.com 10/07/15)

Snap!

Snapchat famously turned down a multi-billion dollar offer from Facebook, so it should be no surprise that others are trying to cash in on its blink-and-you'll-miss-it model.
