A brand new gay App

GiFi has just launched, offering a brand new take on how gays hook up!


A new social app for gay men called GiFi has launched in the UK. The app bills itself as “the next-generation social app that aims to change forever the way gay men chat, network and meet-up”.

GiFi is launching firstly in the UK market, as the GiFi team want to work closely with their home community to make it great for everyone. GiFi are currently working with some amazing groups and people within the community and look forward to bringing further functionality and community engagement as they progress.

GiFi has numerous functions and can be used to build a support network, find new friends, stay in touch with existing friends and look for a job. Of course, it can also be used to arrange a date or hook-up.

GiFi users are able to browse the 500 nearest guys – to a location of their choice – who match their interests, preferences and current mood. One-on-one chat and group messaging functions are both available.

GiFi is all about disrupting the status quo. Rather than focussing on one need other apps in the community offer, GiFi focuses on the bigger picture. GiFi gives users the opportunity to meet other members with shared interests, whether this be a mutual mood to meet for coffee, drinks, networking and so much more.

Furthermore, GiFi’s various profile view options spread further than the typical grid view seen in so many other apps, GiFi also offers carousel view for members to find people who they find hot or not, a map view (set to 0.2 km safety zone as standard) to see nearby members as well as a viewed by and who's viewed me option to encourage communication between GiFi users.

GiFi is downloadable for free and runs on any iPhone operating iOS 6.0 or later and any Android phone operating 3.0. GiFi membership is free but premium packages are available at prices ranging from £1.49 to £29.99. The first 10,000 guys to download GiFi will automatically receive lifetime premium membership.

The GiFi aim is to work with the community as a whole, as there is such a need for the functionality and options the GiFi app provides. Businesses and charities can use GiFi as a further platform to reach their members, and GiFi will reinvest profits back into the community through platform development and also their charity partner the London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard.

Businesses, groups and charities will be able to communicate effortlessly to members of their set-up groups and places to send updates via broadcasts and notifications to inform the larger community on what is going on as well as their products and services.

Along with the GiFi motto 'Dare to be Different', it really is an app that dares and succeeds to be different with a promising future ahead.
