Tuesday February 7th 2012 – OttawaCanada, New York, New York
The popular social discovery mobiledating app SinglesAroundMe (SAM) today officially launched its mosttechnologically advanced iPhone app just in time for Valentine’s Day. The sexy new app leaps ahead in design anduser experience and introduces the industry’s first “ Approximate Location”feature, for users to increase serendipity without compromising safety.
Unlike other location-based mobile datingapps, SAM utilizes geographical mapping to plot the locationof nearby singles, literally next door, anywhere in the world. CEOChris Klotz recently said “ Our goal is to offer an experience that parallelsreal life and to make it as social, interactive and now safe for our millionsof users around the world”.
The new iPhone and recently releasedAndroid apps not only connect singles within their immediate location anywhereon earth, but it also solves security issues expressed by some users aboutrevealing their location.
For members who wish to flirt butprefer to keep their location somewhat private, “Approximate Location” offers aunique way for users to be in the vicinity without revealing their exactlocation. Now, for the first time anywhere, members can choose exactly howmuch—if any—of their actual location they want to share; they can choose tokeep it exact, hidden or approximate, which displaces their precise location byapproximately 1-2 miles or 2-3 kilometers.
What this means for users is they nowhave complete control of their privacy. If they are at home and want to hidetheir location they can do so, but if they choose to switch their location to“Approximate” it displaces them outside of their immediate neighborhood. Ifthey are out or feeling engaged they could switch their location to exact andmeet people close by, in real life!
"I believe our new privacycontrols dramatically change the game and solve the problem that was holdingback this new industry," said Christopher Klotz, CEO ofSinglesAroundMe. "In today’s connected world, most members do not seembothered by revealing their location, however, there is a percentage of membersthat have requested more control over the privacy of their locationinformation. With this new release, we have opened the doors to asafer—and even more exciting—location-based dating experience.”
