A group of friends living in Boston have put together a recipe app they're marketing as "Tinder for food."

A trio of friends living in the Boston area have designed their own food app and put it to market. The cleverly named app, called Tender, is just like its dating app namesake, presents you with a string of images that you can swipe right if you like and left if you're not a fan.

Only instead of matching you up with local singles, swiping right adds a recipe to an in-app cookbook. In an interview with Boston.com, Jordan Homan, one of the app's developers, said that "As a twenty-something, we are all constantly combating the impulse to just eat-out or pick something up But Tender," he believes, "gets you psyched about the prospect of making food, and it makes it easy to do so."

If a user is looking for something more specific than a string of unrelated fields, the app offers up several filters to narrow the search depending on what kind of food you're looking to cook, as well as general dietary restriction.

It's been about a week since the app first came out, and since then, it's garnered several hundred users, and is continuing to grow at an exponential rate.
