BALCONY murder accused Gable Tostee has been granted bail but must stay off the mobile dating app Tinder.

Tostee, who met his alleged victim on the dating app, appeared for the second day of his bail application hearing at the Supreme Court in Brisbane today.

The 28-year-old bodybuilder was bailed to live with his parents at their home in Carrara, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported.

His parents also put up a A$200,000 surety to ensure his bail went ahead.

Tostee was arrested and charged with murder in August after Lower Hutt woman Warriena Wright fell 14 floors to her death from his Surfers Paradise apartment.

The pair met through the Tinder dating app while Ms Wright, 26, was in Australia for a wedding.

Tostee has been in custody since his arrest.

At today's hearing, Justice Debra Mullins put a number of strict bail conditions in place.

Tostee was to stick to a curfew, not consume alcohol and not use the mobile dating app Tinder.

He was also not allowed to arrange to meet any woman he did not know through any social media sites, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported.

At the hearing, Justice Mullins said Tostee had also agreed to take part in an alcohol rehabilitation programme.

She said Tostee appeared to be incredibly focused on himself and was upset about what people were saying about him on social media sites, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported.

However, she said it would be "unjust" for Tostee to remain in custody until his trial.

Tostee's bail application was heard yesterday but Justice Mullins had reserved her decision until today.
