Tint just launched its optimized mobile version today. With over 20,000 users and5,000,000+ Facebook friends of friends, Tint was selected as one of the 20 most promising start-ups in Europe during the 2012 Seedcamp Paris (an event allowing such promising start-ups to meet investors).

What is Tint ?friends

Tint is a unique app that connects its users with their Facebook friends of friends while traveling. It’s a different way to travel, a new way to live and a fun way to truly know the world! This free app is designed for travellers of all kinds to have a more authentic travel experience.

It grants them several options of finding a host’s house to stay at, a friend to meet over coffee/dinner and even a friend to show them around the city. And the best part about it is that they would not have to deal with complete strangers, rather people in their own circle of friends for a safer trip.

Who can join Tint?

Tint encourages everybody to travel; be it near or far. It aims at bringing the world closer together by creating trust, forming friendships and having memorable experiences. Though it is a travel app, Tint is also for the non-travelling crowd, who would rather meet/host a friend from another town; sharing stories, forming bonds and learning about different cultures.

Brice Lecompte, the co-founder of Tint says, “A successful trip is primarily the result of an alchemy combining, sharing, discovery and communication between people and cultures”.

How to Sign Up?

To access Tint, users need to sign in with their Facebook account as a safety measure. This will be their virtual identity. With only a few clicks, the users can find what they are looking for. It’s just that simple!

And so, with their engineering background, the idea of Tint finally emerged onto a solid platform.
