Move over, Tinder.

In the world of dating apps where Tinder has swiped its way to dominance, app developers are really having to stretch for fresh ideas. The latest one to drop is Align, an LA based app that finds matches based on astrology.

How it works: Based on your sign, the app offers you a list of emojis and adjectives to customize your profile (because emoji is a powerful language). Instead of having to dodge through endless misfired shots, Align presents a precise roundup of five astrological matches per day, along with a cosmic report explaining how you two would make sparks fly.

It could well be a complete mumbo jumbo, but good on these guys for giving mobile dating a little more than just looks.

The app launched yesterday, but only available in LA for now.
