There’s a new kind of matching app in the iTunes Store that can help you make friends and fill your stomach. The Austin based startup is called Dindr and its all about meeting people to go out to eat.

Members of the Dindr community can set up group meals or group outings for dining. Then, complete strangers can ask if they can join for the meal.

While it may seem like an odd proposition at first, the company behind the app has already had over 1,000 downloads. People are getting to know one another and finding new interesting eating experiences and new food, and who doesn’t like food.  If you’re one for food discovery and restaurant discovery, Dindr could be the app for you. The greatest part is, yo don’t have to do it alone.

Dindr is the perfect cross between a restaurant and food discovery app and a way to meet new friends.

Dindr Founder Zachary Cassie says the app is great for folks that are new to town or traveling on business. Also there’s no requirement to go about Dindring alone. Say you and your wife just moved to town and there’s an Italian family style dinner on Dindr that sounds amazing, if accepted both of you can join that dinner.

Sure it sounds like Tinder but the only thing you’re swiping is food and there’s no pressure about your date. Dindr sums it up in four easy steps: swipe food, invite friends, match restaurants and make memories. What better way is there to make memories than over food.

With Dindr you can:

Discover & dine with chill / rad / beautiful / hungry people who like similar foods and activities in your city
