The Latest Dating App
by Liz Conwald
A new dating App just launched and its called “happn”
It’s supposedly having some viral success internationally already.
If you’ve ever randomly crossed paths with someone and wished you had an easy way to message them later this App is for you.
The App is based on the exploration of the “almost connections” that you nearly make each day? What if the potential love of your life just visited your favorite coffee spot and you only missed them by a matter of minutes?
With 2.5 million users in global destinations like Paris, London, New York, Barcelona, Berlin, Sydney, Buenos Aires, Santiago, and Milan — and a remarkable viral growth rate driven almost entirely by organic word of mouth.
Here’s how it works:
>> STEP 1: FIND PEOPLE IN YOUR PATH
Fire up the app to see profiles of people you’ve crossed paths with, and find out when, where, and how many times the two of you accidentally intersected (or almost did).
>> STEP 2: SPARK A CONNECTION
“Heart” the people you’re interested in, and if they like you back, you can start a conversation — plus “charm” them to really make sure they notice you.
>> STEP 3: MAKE IT MEMORABLE
Meet in person with your happn match… unlike other dating apps, you can revisit where you first crossed paths for a memorable ‘how we met’ story.
Conveniently, the app doesn’t need to be open for it to work: Launch happn whenever you want to travel back in time and see who you crossed paths with since you last looked.
Sounds like the destiny of dating just got a little more interesting.
