August 19th, 2015 by admin

In today’s world everything is just a click away. In order to keep up with the pace and all the technology, we have to work hard and move quick. We use our smart phones to access the Internet and the wide world around us. We are always on the go so we need to be able to do things on the go. Even online dating on a computer wasn’t fast enough anymore. Dating on the go via our phones is the newest path. In fact, being able to do anything we need on our phones has been a new revolution. Mobile applications are the latest technological advancement.
With social websites such as face book and twitter, online dating apps such as Skout and Coffee Meets Bagel are taking dating to the next level. Coffee Meets Bagel links you to mutual friends or friends of friends through your face book contacts. Coffee Meets Bagel used to send emails of your daily matches; now it is available as an app on your phone. Skout is also available as an app on your phone. It, like Coffee Meets Bagel allows you to link through face book or your email and share pictures and meet new people.
Despite the need for online dating apps it does seem that the market has many of them. An application or website must fulfill a need that all users have. Dating apps certainly fulfill that need. Everyone has inherent need to find love but more than that, people need help finding that person. Dating apps connect you to some one you can relate to and that lives in your area. Hopefully they also have the same interests or friends that you do; this is a wonderful thing. It is quick and easy! However those apps also have to be user friendly as well as proving better than other apps. How do people find your app in a market full of new applications for everyone to use? Marketing is another tool that new applications need to have.
Teens seem to find the newest and latest app that appeals to them. Online dating is thought of as an adult market but studies show that teens are using sites such as Skout. If your teen is using Skout, it is relatively safe as far as dating apps go because teens are paired with other teens. However, predators could still fake their age and be talking to your teenager. Perhaps better age verification measures could be put into place in the future. Parents also need to continue to monitor their teens’ activities. One great thing about Skout from a parent’s perspective is they don’t approve the scantily clad bathroom pictures. It is also a well-run app that is easy to use. In today’s world that is what is important.
