New York, New York; London, England; Ottawa, Canada – November 6, 2015 – SinglesAroundMe (SAM), The world’s first location based dating app that revolutionized the industry announced today, the release of its next generation iPhone & Android apps to coincide with the launch of its “Hear Me” campaign, to showcase a better more personal way to meet.
“The new SinglesAroundMe app is designed to mirror the real world. People are open to talk to one another and to express their personality and likeability and ultimately influence the first impression of their photo,” said company founder and CEO Christopher Klotz. “Ultimately we don’t agree with the gatekeeper mentality of many dating apps these days where users are forced to like up to 50% or more of the photos they see, just in the hopes of talking to someone,” Klotz said.
To guide the next generation of SinglesAroundMe® the team challenged themselves to rethink the connection between people using the metaphor “Hear Me”. A unique “open” communication gateway materialized. New “Like” buttons are now featured on every profile photo, allowing users to “Like” or “Dislike” people as they swipe through photos. Removing users that are no longer of interest, highlighting those that are “Liked” and showing the user all the people that “Liked” them in a “Likes” summary page, transformed the application. “This subtle but important difference is unique to SinglesAroundMe® and will lead to more genuine “Mutual Likes” between users and will lead to faster more meaningful connections,” said Julia Somers, Head of User Experience at SinglesAroundMe.
Five years ago we became fascinated by the idea of leveraging modern cell phone GPS technology to discover new ways for single people to meet. We were disenfranchised with Internet dating and frustrated by the lack of immediacy, real world opportunities and simply thought there was a better way for people to discover one another. SinglesAroundMe was born to solve this problem and we became the very first location based mobile dating app in the world. It may sound crazy, but we wanted you to be able to meet single people around you today and if you traveled somewhere tomorrow, to meet a whole new group of people instantly. Today the name SinglesAroundMe has become a marque brand and is used by millions of people around the world everyday.
