Location-Based Mobile Dating App SinglesaroundMe Launches on Blackberry, Allowing Business Users to Find Love for Valentine's Day(February 02, 2011)
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK -- (Marketwire) -- 02/02/11 -- Location-based mobile dating app SinglesAroundMe (SAM) is launching for Blackberry users for Valentine's Day. After an initial successful app launch for iPhone in 2010, having fun isn't limited only to iPhone owners. Business users with Blackberries will now be able to use SAM to find a date and dabble with serendipity. Ten thousand premium lifetime versions will be available free from Valentine's Day.
SinglesAroundMe will be the first location-based app available on both the iPhone and Blackberry, allowing users to connect across platforms, potentially bringing tens of millions of people together. "Online dating is so old-school," says company founder Chris Klotz. "This is the next frontier. Simply, it's the new way to date, social networking in real time, live and interactive."
Valentine's Day is looming, and for anyone not in a relationship, it can be a pretty depressing day. But SinglesAroundMe (SAM) is transforming the dating experience worldwide, with its patent-pending app, the most sophisticated product in the sector. SinglesAroundMe will make Valentine's Day more fun. It's the perfect, no-pressure way to find other singles at a time of year that's about celebrating relationships, from friendships to family.
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 worldwide - in bars, restaurants, resorts, distant cities, wherever, before leaving home, perfect for world travelers. There is seamless integration between the SAM app and the website at http://www.singlesaroundme.com
Within the next few weeks, SinglesAroundMe will be launching an app for Android phones and versions in French and German.
SAM is available through iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/singlesaroundme-sam/id367375109?mt=8 for iPhone and on Valentine's Day through Blackberry App World.
