Hashsnap, a new dating app, is launching in San Francisco after a round of funding and successful beta testing. The company says, “If you’re looking for a real relationship and you care about personality, but are tired of reading and writing dating profiles, then Hashsnap is for you.” The app bills itself as “a social network for meeting new people through authentic profiles based on snaps that show off personality in addition to appearance.”
Hashsnap’s driving philosophy is that, in order to discover someone’s personality, you need to observe their behavior in a variety of contexts. Hashsnap provides these contexts by prompting users with new themes each day. Users can then find creative ways of taking live pictures of themselves that go with the daily theme.
The brand believes that these live snaps make its content highly credible in comparison to other dating apps in the market. Snaps are taken in real-time and only through the app’s camera, guaranteeing they are unaltered and up-to-date. The same can’t be said about pictures found in any other dating app.
The Hashsnap experience is simple and direct:
- Every 24 hours there is a new daily theme, which is embedded into any snap you take.
- Snaps can only be taken live through the app’s camera. That means no more profiles with outdated or altered pictures.
- When two people mutually like each other they connect and can start chatting.
- When someone you’re connected with uploads a new snap, you’ll receive it as a private message. You can share your reaction with an emoji.
Hashsnap won third place in the prestigious Mr. / Ms. Silicon Valley 2015 competition and already have 2,000 users signed up in San Francisco prior to the official launch.
Hashsnap will be hosting a launch event in San Francisco during the month of July. Approaching the team through the app is the best way to get invited. Look for them at Dolores Park this weekend as well.
The app is now available on the Appstore. Download now.
