Guys, there’s a new dating app on the market which could change the game completely.
The concept behind most gay dating apps out there right now is that you connect with other users based on their profile, communicating if you find them appealing. Whilst this is great for some people, there’s others who find the process a bit too drawn out and not very constructive when you’re looking for something a bit, shall we say, immediate.
Well, there’s a new dating app available which will change how you find your next hook-up, let us introduce you to Hookd. The app gets rid of the “traditional” approach to finding your guy, and instead allows users to broadcast a message to their local area in real-time. Think of it as a gay Facebook, if you will.
Users can then respond to that message via a private message, saving time scouring profiles and means you’re more likely to find someone with aligning interests. The app also works if you’re looking for someone with a specific interest, such as a fellow America’s Next Top Model fan or even a gym buddy.
Daniel Joseph, founder of the Hookd app, said of its unique USP:
The concept of most online dating apps is inherently flawed but for some reason this concept has stuck. That is exactly why we developed Hookd, which uses a more intuitive and effective model for people to connect.
Not only is Hookd more instant, it also claims to be more secure. The app limits the use of public photo uploads by marking photos taken within the in-app camera, which means you’re less likely to be catfished by someone who looks a bit too much like Shawn Mendes.
If you’re ready to give it a go, you’ll find the Hookd app on the iOS and Google Play app stores.
