Dating apps are the best. For the first time in the history of humankind they let you weed out unsuitable matches and zero-in on prospective partners with laser precision.
We all know plenty of people who met their better halves on a dating app.
Dating apps are the worst. Anyone who has ever used one has had to trudge through unlimited fruitless messages and endure countless ghostings.
Soone is an ingenious new app that seeks to harness all the good things about social connection apps, while eliminating all the bad things. Whether you’re looking for love, friendship, or business opportunities, Soone is your antidote to time wasters.
How? Soone restricts interactions to relatively small windows of time, between users who are nearby. If connection requests aren’t accepted within 30 minutes, they disappear. And once a request is accepted, the associated chat box vanishes after two hours.
The whole experience is streamlined and super-secure. For a start, the app requires all users to verify their first profile photo using face verification technology, giving those devious catfishes nowhere to hide.
For added safety, Soone never shows exact locations. Instead it displays a general heatmap, showing public hot spots where there are five or more Soone users within a mile of each other.
The app even offers certified meet-up spots, pre-screened for visibility and security. It’s like having Jason Bourne in your corner.
It goes without saying that Soone doesn’t sell or share user data.
Outside these innovative features, Soone has all the functionality you’d expect to find in a social app. It lets you personalize your profile with up to 15 interests and then brings you into contact with the people you’re looking for. Simple as that.
Plus, Soone is totally free, with no in-app purchases, subscriptions, or paid memberships.
