Users of the app can expect to find people who have similar interests, particularly those who hate the same things as they do. Hater will then match users based on their location and shared hatred. More than 3,000 topics are available on the app, ranging from politicians and fashion to daily habits. To make the conversation smoother, the app is also equipped with ice-breaking features, such as mini games that require two people to play.
Hater has reportedly been tested in New York since and gained a positive response. The three most popular topics during the test period were the 2016 US presidential election, bad pedestrian behavior and drains clogged by hairs.
The developer stressed that although the app matched users based on shared hatred, it did not aim to encourage negative behaviors and had several measures to handle misbehaving users.
Registration for the beta version of Hater is open for iOS device users.
