The problem with many dating and other people-meeeting apps is that they often can be awkward because it’s all one-on-one communication and relationships. Internet blind dating can have its pratfalls. What Martini, now available on Android, wants to do, is to make it easier for people interested in one another to meet by letting groups of people get togehter. Thus, small groups can meet and mix together to find possible matches.
Users start off by logging in with Facebook Connect, which is necessary to pull in profile data and friend relationships. Then, they pick a group of 1–3 people from a list of their same-gender friends, and set the criteria for the gender, age, and race that they are and want to meet. Then, every night at midnight, a new group is matched up, and the members of the group can communicate and collaborate to make plans together. Simple as that. The app is free to download from Google Play.
