The creators of the wildly popular social network Swipe (a “community” based app that allows you to meet new people in your area), has a new feature that’s launching nationally today— Moments.
The Swipe team said the idea came out of his examination of other dating apps/sites. Most of them have nice large user bases, but they argue, “You could never truly do anything outside of dating on them.” And the large majority of them are focused more so on hookups rather than real life connections. So with Swipe’s new feature Moments, they hope to create “an exciting community where you can connect with the right people at the right time.”
Creating an account on Swipe is a very easy experience. Rather than treating this as something walled off from your online identity, you connect the app to Facebook. Then you answer a few questions about your interests, and Swipe uses those answers, along with information from your Facebook profile, to populate a user’s and moments relevant to you.
Once you’re setup, you can start browsing other users and moments. You can swipe right on a moment to let that person know you’re interested in joining them. Based on advanced machine learning Swipe gets better over time at recommending potential matches and moments. You also have the ability to create your own moments to make plans with members of your community.
“Everybody knows the pressure of a first date: Searching for that perfect outfit. Hunting for ways to be engaging. Dissecting each detail when it’s over to check for mistakes. Dating can make even the most confident person lose his cool,” Kelly Starling.

Swipe App has new features that already experienced massive growth with over 500,00 monthly active users and 20 million matches made. Swipe expects the core user base to continue to be urban and in their mid- to late-20s for near future. However, they hope to extend to older demographics and move beyond major cities with new features that plan to launch.
