Gaydar iPhone App Launched

The world’s biggest gay dating website launches the world’s biggest Gay app!

Available worldwide via the iTunes App Store the new free app from Gaydar.co.uk puts the six million gay, bisexual or bi-curious men already registered to Gaydar in the pocket of iPhone users across the globe.

The app integrates the most popular features of Gaydar including ‘Friends & Favourites’, ‘Tracks’, ‘Messages’ and ‘Search’ and offers sophisticated features and safety tools not available on similar apps. Interesting features include:

• Revolutionary dual ‘Nearby’ search displaying profiles of those logged into the app using LBS (Location Based Services) and online Gaydar profiles that have their GPS (Gaydar Positioning System) location set with postcodes or longitude and latitude.

• The exclusive Google maps feature embeds maps into messages sent via the app when guys are ready to meet. Maps can be viewed by both App and Web customers.

• The ability to play in nine languages including French, Italian and Spanish.

All of Gaydar’s 12 million photos have been rated by the in-house Customer Relations team to abide by Apple’s guidelines and ensure public content is suitable for all ages. The app automatically selects a non-adult photo for display in public areas of the app. However guys looking to show off additional ‘assets’ can attach up to five private photos to messages. Safety is also key to the app’s Nearby function, displaying searches at a minimum of 75 metres away no matter how close someone is.

Simon Johnson, Product Manager at Gaydar, comments: “The app is set to take our users social life to another level enabling you to arrange mates and dates on the go. I’m addicted and fire up the ‘Nearby’ search whenever I’m at the gym, on the train or at home. I’m finding new guys on the menu each time!”

iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 users can download the app free from the App Store. Android, Nokia and Blackberry versions are in development. Members have unlimited usage of the app and Gaydar Guests enjoy the same limits on the app as they do online - the app is another way to access, update and cruise using an existing Gaydar profile.
