Download of the Week: Bloc

Each week we trawl through the internet’s jumble sale of apps to bring you a cool, new app that will hopefully improve your life in some way.

This week, it’s an ambitious app  taking on the likes of Facebook and Tinder with their new social network, Bloc!

Getting the social back into Social Networks

Bloc is trying improve your social and dating life with their clean and simple app that helps you organise better. Let’s be honest, no one really checks their Facebook events and Tinder is becoming a bore!

The idea is that Bloc connects to your Facebook contacts, but allows you to showcase which events you are going to, see what events are popular and who is attending.

Digital chat ups

The app prides itself on providing a simple in-app messaging service so you can chat to people with similar interests and hobbies before going to an event.

They hope to make it easier to approach that girl or guy at the bar, if you have already had a cheeky chat.

Bloc is available now on iOS for free and coming soon to Android.
