Checkm8 Labs today is pleased to introduce Checkm8 1.1 for iOS, their friend discovery application that connects users with people around them. The key to Checkm8 is mutual interest between users without the fear of rejection. Users check-in to a location and view the other Checkm8 users nearby. When two users 'check' each other, Checkm8! Otherwise, the interested party's 'check' is not revealed. Checkm8s can safely chat through the in-app messenger to gauge whether they have more in common.
With Facebook as the dominant social network focusing on maintaining relationships, Checkm8 Labs anticipates friend discovery as the next major movement in the social space. Often, connections are missed because people are afraid to approach someone for the first time. Checkm8 replaces that anxiety with the ability to discover people around who may have shared interests. Now, meeting people is easier in any setting - from coffee shops to classrooms to live events. Checkm8 can be used with Facebook friends, people that users see everyday, or those they have yet to meet.
Currently, Checkm8 is available to Facebook account holders. Checkm8 displays first name and last initial, profile pictures, and number of Facebook friends. Users decide what other personal information they would like to share, and individuals can be blocked at anytime. Checkm8 uses Facebook information to separate certain age groups, such as minors and people 18 and older. Users 13 to 17 are only viewable to their Facebook friends.
