Based on your location the dating app presents you a timeline featuring people you may be interested in that are all, or have been within a small radius (<250 meters). Moreover, it constantly updates that timeline based on where you are and how close other users are. Similar to Tinder the app uses a ‘hot or not’ function to match people. If you like a person you see, you hit the ❤ symbol, and if that person likes you too you’re able to chat.
However, what makes Happn more interesting than its competitor is that it’s an app for city people that transforms urban spaces into small online dating markets. The app’s focus on proximity as a basis for interaction gives you a refreshing and exciting experience of urban life. Since Happn only links you to other users within close proximity, the app stimulates you to be on the move and explore new parts of town. Being in another neighborhood means getting in touch with new people.
After launches in cities such as Paris, Barcelona and San Francisco, Happn will be introduced in Amsterdam this Sunday. Click here to check out the app, and you’re ready to explore this Monday’s King’s Day in a new way.
