Tinder type "swipe" interface using Salesforce as database

I have a client who is interested in providing users the ability to swipe and select Salesforce Contacts, -- so their community users can match with other community users based on interests. Has anyone worked on a swipe interface for SF! or know what's involved, first steps, etc? 
@MendyR - As per my understanding, your requirement would be to perform the swipe on a mobile device from Salesforce1. If that holds true, you could use a custom Visualforce page either using a UI based framework like Bootstrap, JqueryUI (https://api.jquerymobile.com/swipe/) or Swipe Me (http://kinglozzer.github.io/SwipeMe/demo/index.html) to implement the swipe functionality. You can then expose this Visualforce page in the Salesforce Community using a custom tab.

In order to understand further as to how Salesforce Communities can be accessed over Salesforce 1 refer the following link - https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=networks_access_in_salesforce1.htm&language=en_US&type=0

In case, you want to build a native mobile app, you could leverage the Salesforce Mobile SDK to access content like Contacts etc. from Salesforce within your native app. In order to understand further about the capablities of the Salesforce Mobile SDK refer the following link - https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Mobile_SDK.
