Location-based mobile dating company Meetmoi announced earlier this week that their popular service has come to Android. Called MeetMoi NOW, the free application allows users to share their basic information which is then used to help meet others with similar interests. The app works in the background of your phone, staying active so that you’ll be alerted to other users within a mile of your location. Even when you have your phone put away, it’s working hard to find you a date. Connections made through the service will expire after 60 minutes, hopefully leading to real-world face time. Look for MeetMoi NOW in the Android Market today or scan the barcode below with your handset to download it directly.
LEADING LOCATION-BASED DATING SERVICE LAUNCHES APP FOR ANDROID, MEETMOI NOW, OPENING THE DOOR TO THE FUTURE OF THE WAY PEOPLE MEET AND DATE
Always-On Mobile Dating Application Suggests Matches Based on Location and Time, Allowing Members To Stop Searching Dating Profiles And Start Enjoying Dating
NEW YORK, NY – August 3, 2010 – MeetMoi, the leading location-based mobile dating company, today announced the launch of MeetMoi NOW, an application for AndroidTM devices. MeetMoi NOW is a free application introducing proximity-based matching, which takes advantage of the background processing capabilities of Android. The service is designed to find people dates, even when their phones are in their purses and pockets.
“There is a huge opportunity to change the paradigm of online dating from services where people spend the majority of their time searching for profiles, to a service that delivers profiles to users’ phones based on their real-time location,” said Andrew Weinreich, CEO of MeetMoi.
Once downloaded from the Android MarketTM, new members provide MeetMoi NOW with basic information about their interests in just a few steps, and then let MeetMoi’s technology do all the work. Whenever two users with matching preferences are within a mile of one another, MeetMoi NOW notifies them both, allowing them to begin a conversation. To encourage face-to-face meetings when people are near one another, connections made through the service expire after 60 minutes.
“MeetMoi NOW is a dating app for people with a genuine interest in meeting in-person, not just online chatting and flirting,” said Alex Harrington, President of MeetMoi. “Our goal is to make it fun and effortless to meet people when you are out and about.”
MeetMoi has offered internet-based mobile dating services since its commercial launch in 2008, with both a free and premium subscription experience. The initial launch of the app, available today, is in beta; MeetMoi expects to add premium features in a future release. Additional mobile platforms, including iPhone®, will be supported in the coming weeks.
MeetMoi, the leading location-based mobile dating company in the United States, was founded in 2007 in New York City. MeetMoi matches users with one another based on preferences and proximity through both application-based and mobile web-based dating. By leveraging location awareness and the real time communication channels available on mobile devices, MeetMoi makes it easy for members to connect in person. In addition to its own branded dating service, MeetMoi provides white label services for major brands and communities. Users may join the MeetMoi community for free, with premium service available for a monthly subscription fee.
