Like other dating apps, Tribe allows users to swipe left or right to indicate their interest in another user.
What makes Tribe unique is that if two users express interest in one another, they can not only message each other but set up a first date as well, according to the site.
The app inserts all of this information into an algorithm and then produces 18 matches each day.
This match limit, Ackerman says, is meant to encourage Tribe users to take the time to really check out other users and be more thoughtful in their search for love.“It’s a dating app to end all dating apps because people actually go on dates,” Ackerman said.
Unlike popular dating apps such as Tinder, Ackerman, 44, insists that Tribe is “specifically not a hook up app; it’s about making real connections.” It's also different from predecessor JDate in a number of ways."JDate is primarily a website, and charges users a monthly fee to use it.
We have a free app," Ackerman said."On top of that, we have a feature — the ' Ask Out' option — that's unique to Tribe. That's what makes us different, and that's why we're here," he said.
Ackerman asserts that the app, Tribe, will aid in ensuring the continuity of Jewish identity in generations to come."Tribe is an avenue where Jews can meet other Jews, and thereby help maintain the continuity of the Jewish people," he said.If a user taps the “Ask Out” icon, Tribe will provide restaurant, bar and coffee house suggestions located close to where the user's match lives. In Rabbi Dovi Scheiner's eyes, it’s this "Ask Out" feature that really sets Tribe apart from other dating apps and has garnered his support.Scheiner, 38, serves at the So Ho Synagogue, known for its young congregation and hip, urbane ambience.“I often hear about parents and grandparents who have met at a synagogue, but those days are largely gone.The world has moved online," said Scheiner."If [Tribe] can be a vehicle to put people in the same room so they can meet — and not virtually — then ultimately that’s a good thing. The app has been well received so far, said Ackerman.
Over 3,500 people — including non-Jews who want to date someone Jewish — are on Tribe, which is free on i Tunes.Ackerman has plans to offer Tribe on Android devices as well.
