Ask no more questions about timing because 2CanPlay, a geo-location-based dating app, is launching on July 8, 2020. It prioritises meaningful conversation and allows you to relate with people you like more quickly by eliminating the endless wait while hoping that they will reciprocate.
While keeping the popular swipe features accessible to most dating apps globally, 2CanPlay will let you message someone you like when you come across their profile.
Most people use at least one dating app and come across a profile they immediately fall in love with. However, the chances of being liked by the owner of the profile are very slim. And that is why 2CanPlay is introducing the “insta-message” feature.
If you are interested in a profile you come across on the explore page, you can send a direct message to the user and/or like the profile. This is quite unlike other apps that only allow you to like or dislike a profile.
To make sure that people don’t spam other users, the insta-message feature can only be used by spending the in-app currency called “coins” which can either be purchased or earned by referring friends and family.
2CanPlay will ensure greater user security and control by eliminating ghosting conversations and dead-end connections through photo, email, and phone number verifications.
A new user has to register using either their existing Facebook profile or their phone number. We will then send a text message with an authentication code to the registered phone number which the user enters on the app; the registration takes approximately one minute to complete. We expect a user to provide some required information like school, age, hobbies, and personality as well as upload a quality photo. Once all that is done, they are ready to meet people in their area.
“Our mission is to connect singles starting from Nigeria then the rest of Africa and the world.
We intend to lead the way as an app that will perhaps bring a higher level of security to dating applications while being mostly reflective of the user’s time for efficient matching,” says Adekunle Adeniji.
Now you will be able to meet people in your location and also have the option to like their profiles. And if you can’t wait for them to like you back, you can send them a message using the insta-message feature.
