One of my good friends is the founder of it. Good app, it is fun. It is different because it isn't as weird and creepy as other "dating" apps. I would say it is more of a "meeting" app than a dating app. Kind of just have to try it

Basically the way it works is:

1. Connect to your facebook, (but it doesnt post anything to your fb, only pulls photos and friends) put up some photos of yourself for your profile
2. Swipe left and right voting people (Basically hot or not) and girls are doing the same. What is shown on the profiles are photos, then mutual friends (sometimes 0)
3. If you both happen to vote yes, then it opens up a message on the side. Just say like why hello or something and chat it up with them, it's fun


A critical element to a good experience is a VERY good main pic as lots of people will vote yes on you. the main difference between this and other apps is it isn't like creepy or taboo. like tons of people i know are openly on it it is kind of like just an add on feature to facebook where you can meet a bunch of people. have like 70 matches on it lol i can't even keep up with all the chats.

User base. Tons of folks in your geo area. They also are there for one reason, to smash.

Wonder how he makes money. Not a hint of advertising built in. The simplicity is what sells it btw. He did an excellent job.

He needs to watch out, the last update added a few unnecessary features. Still extremely lean but I can see them rolling something out every few weeks and bloat the **** out of it.

It's socially accepted and popular, it's become the official bootycall app for straight people, it's more or less a straight person's Grindr. I've personally had extraordinary luck with it, way better than a site like okcupid. If I pop in to Boulder (or any college town) for a couple days, I get tons of hits, and actually managed a meet greet and skeet in Boulder once, so I've been sold since then.

That's another unintended upside. I move between Hoboken, NJ, NYC, Jersey Shore and Central New Jersey. It links up there, I get some matches. Then I come back a week later to each location and there are 20 waiting for me.

It's a lot fun drunk, Ryan. Also, on boring conference calls, my boss and I sit there and 'like' pictures.

You can't. Load pics to fb and set so you can only see them. "Only me" option upon upload I believe.

It's like shooting fish in a barrel that's stocked with trophy bass. I have too many matches, I've lost count of the chicks I've met on there.

I've been putting off updating to iOS6 because I don't want to deal with re-jailbreaking but this sounds liek it'll be worth it. So there's no way to avoid linking it with FB? I avoid that at all costs.

Don't figure it would work well in my area, see everyone at the same bars anyway...hashtag smalltownproblems

Maybe look into it for traveling adventures.
