As if you needed more workday distractions, Tinder has just announced its new venture — Tinder for desktop. Called Tinder Online, the site is designed specifically for developing markets with limited mobile storage and bad data plans.

That said, Tinder also realize that a desktop version makes it easier to use the app on the sly, and is marketing it both ways.

The dating app described its new venture as “your English professor’s worst nightmare,” and outlined some perfect scenarios for using Tinder Online: “Mobile phones not allowed in class? Just fire up your laptop and swipe incognito. Cubicle life got you down? Now you can toggle between spreadsheets and Super Likes in a flash."

The online version has all the same functions of the app, but with desktop-optimized chatting, and instead of swiping left or right, you simply drag the images with your mouse.

Watch the video above to see a demo of how to use the site. Tinder Online is currently being tested in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, the Philippines, Italy and Sweden, with a global rollout planned later in the year.

In other news, read about Tinder Select, a secret version of the app for hot people only.
