One of the UK’s hottest mobile dating applications is making its way across the pond.
Just in time for the New Year, StreetSpark, iPhone app for offline dating, will officially launch in the U.S. in January (it’s currently here in beta). Since its 2009 UK start, StreetSpark has had over a million Sparks, or matches.
The application’s Social Matching technique garners your activity across other social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Pandora, and Foursquare and then matches you to other users, creating more real matches, based not only on common interests but also the recent activities you share. How it works: Sparks, which are displayed in a list, show you limited profiles of your matches, including what you have in common with each Spark. If you want to get to know a Spark better, you can “ignite” it to see a full profile and connect in real time, or “extinguish” to dismiss the Spark and make way for others. You can chat with other Sparks or meet up in a public place, if nearby.
StreetSpark works in any U.S. city, so you can find a date when you’re traveling too. Best of all, it’s free. Download the app straight from iTunes by clicking here.
