Online dating comes to the iPad with SpeedDate app
By David Dahlquist, Macworld
So you want to date somebody, but you’ve had no luck with bars, clubs, or even flirty Facebook pokes. What’s a lonely heart to do? Try online dating, of course! And the only thing better than online dating is mobile online dating. Thanks to SpeedDate’s new app, you can now dive into online dating right from your iPad.
SpeedDate.com is an online “speed dating” site designed to connect you with compatible singles in your area. Singles can go on multiple live thre-minute online dates via instant messaging, video chat, or live audio.
The SpeedDate iPad app, like the iPhone version, lets you browse photos and profiles, search for matches, and quickly connect while on the go. You can search for singles based on location and/or specific keywords; you can even narrow your searches with filters for physical attributes like body type, hair color, race, or lifestyle traits such as level of education or number of children. Once you find a person you’re interested in—pro tip: ladies have a lot more selection to choose from than do men—you send them an email or a flirtatious “wink” that lets you know you are interested. From there, romance hopefully blooms.
SpeedDate for the iPad is free to download and works with all versions of the iPad running iPhone OS 3.2 or later.
