Vancouver, April 30 (CINEWS): There is a new and better dating app now becoming popular across Canada. Online and mobile dating apps are huge and growing with over 91M users globally, but many women are experiencing online harassment, turning them off mobile dating.
Originally developed by Technology entrepreneur Ian Andrew Bell, the new Tingle dating app bets on increased security for women as the key to romantic success, with fewer barriers to intimacy and greater chances for connections.
Already available in Canada and the U.K., Tingle has hundreds of thousands of users to date and is now available in the United States. Tingle’s platform integrates secure, anonymous, live audio and video chats between matches, allowing users to see and hear each other in real-time. If the match doesn’t work, both users can disengage without fear of social reprisal as no personal, identifying details like a user’s telephone number, are shared.
Tingle’s commitment to creating an enjoyable, safe, and comfortable dating community extends throughout its build and in features like: Radar. Alerts on users’ devices notify them of mutual matches nearby without compromising precise location.
- Teleport. Lets users “visit” other cities and meet matches before travelling.
- Realtime Audio/Video Calls. Ensures users can confirm their suitor’s identity before meeting in person.
- Disposable Messaging. Secures confidentiality and privacy of exchanges.
“As you progress through the stages of discovering and meeting a new person, giving your phone number to a stranger can be an obstacle to people getting to know one another,” explains Bell. “With Tingle we’ve built the ability for matched users to call each other anonymously directly into the app, allowing people to get richly acquainted prior to meeting in person.”
“Tingle is unlike anything else on the market right now,” says Mark Brooks, industry expert and principal of Courtland Brooks, an internet dating business consultancy. “Providing users with a window to see and talk with matches, not just text with them, opens the door to intimacy and connections. We expect to see more lasting connections out of Tingle’s technology, particularly for those serious about dating and sick of swipe-and-repeat hookup apps.”
Tingle is designed, developed and operated by Tingle Media Inc. Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada.
