GPS Mobile Dating App SinglesAroundMe (SAM) Is Transforming How Students Meet(November 03, 2010)
OTTAWA, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/03/10 -- GPS mobile dating app SinglesAroundMe (SAM) is transforming the dating experience for students with its patent-pending GPS app, the most sophisticated product in the sector. Since its beta launch six months ago, already 20,000 singles have downloaded the app and are embracing this new and convenient way to meet up.
SAM is the first to plot singles on a geographical Google map in real time and allow users to view others within a chosen range of the GPS location. From there, users can view profiles of singles close to them and send various types of winks and messages. It also features a unique "Destination Search" tool, which allows users to look for singles at specific locations of their choice locally and worldwide, which means that you can check out where your friends are and where a potential date might be before stepping out. Just type in the name of your favorite bar or club to see who's there. There is seamless integration between the SAM app and the website at http://www.singlesaroundme.com
"Since its launch on the iPhone six months ago, SinglesAroundMe has grown rapidly, with sizable communities of singles already found in most cities. Big cities like New York, London, Sydney and Los Angeles have many users and smaller cities like Austin, Paris, Vancouver and Edinburgh are gaining quickly," says SAM founder Christopher Klotz.

Later this fall SinglesAroundMe (SAM) will launch on the Blackberry and Android - allowing users across various smart phone platforms to communicate for the first time, potentially bringing over 100 million smart phone users together.
