In what seems to be a never-ending road towards app convergence, mobile dating platform Tinder just got a whole lot more like Snapchat with a new feature called Moments.

screen568x568Moments lets users annotate and share photos with their matches, who can then respond. However, images will disappear within 24 hours. You can add filters to the swipeable snaps, draw on them, or add text.

The update is live on the App Store now, though no word yet on when the Android incarnation will be arriving.
