Swipe is launching a huge innovative feature for it’s users today called “Moments.” Swipe’s new feature will let you share “moments,” photos or text that expire after 24 hours, with other users in your area. The Swipe Team says they hope the new feature will amplify a user’s connection with their community and will enable more real world meetups. Just because you match with another user, that doesn’t mean you need to date that person; you could match with a friend who you simply want to share a moment with. With the new moments feature the Swipe App is really all about connecting the right people at the right time.
So how does the new and improved version of the Swipe App work? When you create inside the creation page of the new version, your moment will then be broadcast to other users in your area. At this point, other users will then have the option to swipe on your moment to let you know if they’re interested. The hope is seemingly that moments will help users get to know each other beyond simple profile photos, and could also help build more connected communities. To make moments even better you can draw on your photos, caption them, and filter them just like you can in other popular photo apps like Snapchat. It’s really bring the best of everything under one roof.
Future updates from Swipe will elaborate on their new vision for Swipe as a local social network, and not just simply a dating app. A new feature Swipe users will really appreciate is Instagram integration. Users will soon be able to easily broadcast their instagram as moments on Swipe. The social app sees millions of swipes matches per day. Swipe boasts 10 million total matches in all. Clearly, there’s a market for dead-simple dating apps. But is there also market for bringing a social network and a dating app under one roof. You’ll have to swipe to find out.
