Tinder client 6tin reappears in the Windows Phone Store


The cat and mouse game continues. 6tin, Rudy Huyn's Tinder client for Windows Phone, has returned to the Windows Phone Store. Last week it disappeared from the Store, but now appears to be back.

Tinder had originally had the app pulled after complaining about their trademark being used in the app description. The app was updated with a new description and appeared in the Store only to mysteriously vanish last week.

It's now back, so you'll want to download it if you were planning on some casual hook ups. Don't lie to us, we know you're not really using it to date.

Thanks for the tip Paulo from Brazil!

*sigh* this back and forth is getting old. I hate to be a dick, but I'm glad that guy at Tinder got caught on sexual harassment charges.

Pich Sovann says:

Agree, and if not I'll catch that guy by myself.

exkerZ says:

You'd hate to be a dick about being happy that a sexual harassing jerk got caught? Ima tell you.. I think it's okay to feel that way about a douche like that.

TLRtheory says:

I don't know what the hell this app has to offer a married man, but I'm downloading it so I'll have it next time it gets deleted.

Sam Sabri says:

Booty calls. Side game. Etc is what you get with 6tin.

adrian1338 says:

Etc sounds kinky

onysi says:

it will offer divorce papers

xArgieboy says:

This has nothing to do but, anyone else who uses WP DVP 8.1 and whatsapp having some issues or weird behavior with voice messages?

Siah1214 says:

To the forums with ye!

But good on Rudy for fighting the fight for Windows Phone!

DJCBS says:

Honestly, Microsoft should be paying him a salary by now...

EliaJada says:

Seriously, Rudy is giving more effort than the people who made our OS

Jordan Mills says:

I'm not sure if that's more awesome for Rudy or sad for MS.

adrian1338 says:

Pretty sure they do already

TJWINS says:

Since you guys know Rudy so well why don't you ask him what the cat and mouse game is all about lol. We would like to know :)

Does it really matter? Tinder are twats and Rudy rules lol

Pich Sovann says:

More on the go, 6Line 6Facebook 6Tweet 6C..

6Book, otherwise facebook will go crazy also

rahx says:

that sound like sexbook

Pich Sovann says:

What? Your thinking is what I thinking?

killerb255 says:

6grind, 6growl, 6candy

Why did Rudy chose the number 6?

jojoe42 says:

This is a legitimate thing does anyone actually know?

Infamy79 says:

It started with the Vine client called 6sec due to the 6 second videos

He kept the prefix for other apps after that as a branding thing

Rug says:

Ahhh, I kinda thought it sounded like sexting. Sixtin/sexting. Thought it was a funny name for this app.

I always thought it was so the apps appear at the top of your app selection since the '#' comes before the letter 'A'. 

xFalk says:

I think Rudy has 6 fingers on each hand. ;o)

Viipottaja says:

And having a number at the beginning of all his apps keep them all at the top of your applist and bunched together. Smart.

eric12341 says:

If only there was a way to hide age on profile or at least change it.

twelvetudors says:

Why would you want to change your age unless you're lying about it?

Sam Sabri says:

Chris Hansen will be seeing you soon...

eric12341 says:

Lol that Chris Hansen stuff is so 2006. I don't even want to date women that young, just young enough to be in college.

So barely legal eh lol

TonyDedrick says:

Everyone has a preference, lol. As long as they are of age and consenting. Still don't know why you need to hide your age.

eric12341 says:

Because there's an increase in college aged girls who are unwilling to date a male my age even though I'm not that much older than them, it's evident also by the fact I haven't made a single match yet. Hiding my age would fool them into thinking I'm the age I look.

killerb255 says:

...and then when they find out the truth?

He is probably just looking for a casual hookups anyways.

xFalk says:

I couldnt understand why I kept seeing a bunch of geriatric ads in my Facebook account until I noticed my birthdate was set up as being in 1905.

onysi says:

you cant.  its linked to your facebook.

eric12341 says:

And I have it hidden on my Facebook.

onysi says:

lol high expectation much? College girls love sugar daddys. Just look important in your pix. Fb hides it but tinder doesn't hide it. Its on tinders side.

I won't be surprised to see the app pulled down again. Tinder dosen't seem too happy with Rudy and his app. They will try and find every possible shit to delist the app.

PauloCLovo says:

hahahahahaha thx for givin the credits! awesome blog! Salve from Brasil!

pattayo_ib says:

6ROWLR please Rudy!

Give it 24 hours and it will be pulled from the store AGAIN!!

milfermon says:

I just don't understand, what's so special about tinder, can anyone explain please

dalydose says:

Install it and see. Some things are better explained through experience than explanation and this was free.

rockstarzzz says:

*How* can you still not get any real news from Rudy about this drama?

More "this is a thing that happened" with no analysis news.

JanZee says:

6shop touch

kb4000 says:

Haha. This is funny. I didn't like Tinder at first. I only downloaded it to support Rudy back when 6Tinder first came out back in January. Turned out that I met my current girlfriend because of it. May even end up marrying her. Thanks Rudy!

felickz says:

Me too, but I'm married and haven't signed up ;-)

onysi says:

thats awesome

mango.lover says:

Downloading now to prevent future delisting. I don't even use it.

Alex Fanelli says:

Lol I'm 16, downloaded it just to have it and support Rudy

I'm surprised that he just hasn't said hell with the whole thing and just uploaded the XAP to XDA-developers and said I'm done.

Peg Leg says:

You need to open the app, or if they pull it, it wont work.

Jazmac says:

"Place your bets"

bruteech says:

Tinder is a creepy and weird app/concept. Even if I was single, I wouldn't use it.

gcdc_lumia says:

i don't care anymore. but still glad to have it on windows phone. more apps, the better.

dalydose says:

So there's no mention of Tinder in the description, at all? No one new to WP will know what this is and will only have Timber (paid app) as an option.

I'm downloading it since it'll probably be deleted again

daftrobo says:

I need 6tube, or maybe 8....

str00pwafel says:

what if he'd just refuse to take it down? it's just bullsh*t that a trademark can't be used in an app description

It was removed by Microsoft after a complaint. Just follow Rudy on Twitter @RudyHuyn

BASuk2k2 says:

You the dev is doing it for the publicity :P

Viipottaja says:

Is using Facebook the only way to log in, and if I click "Connect with Facebook" does it automatically link with the default account (the one on my FB app on the phone) or do I get to put in the FB account credentials of my choise?

You know, just hypothetically. Not that I would ever use the service, of course...

I was wondering the same thing.  Curiosity got the better of me so I installed the 6Tin app, but summarily uninstalled it when I saw it was linked to a FB account.  Don't want to see a "You liked Tinder!" post on FB, hard to explain that one to the GF.
