The same vastness and anonymity that draws many gay men online can also spell disaster. One London teacher is currently on trial for poisoning four men he met on Grindr , while, in December, news reports surfaced of a gang targeting gay men on hookup apps for robbery. These victims were simply looking for a connection, be it physical or emotional. The profiles they read said nothing of violence, as their attackers hid behind innocuous photos and flattery. Any encounter comes with risk—meeting a stranger, even more so. But there are steps you can take to make your experience safer and, should things get ugly, to help you take control of the situation.
Bang With Friends: Dating App Allows Facebook Users To Hook-Up On Mobile (VIDEO)
Updated September 2, The Companion app, created by five students from the University of Michigan, enables users to request a friend or family member to keep them company virtually and track their journey home via GPS on an online map. Although they can do so, the friend or family member does not need to have the Companion app installed, which is available for both Android and iOS. The user can send out several requests to different phone contacts in case people are not available to be a companion or not with their phones at the time.
Those contacted then receive an SMS text message with a hyperlink in it that sends them to a web page with an interactive map showing the user walking to their destination. If the user strays off their path, falls, is pushed, starts running or has their headphones yanked out of their phone, the app detects these changes in movements and asks the user if they’re OK.
But you can certainly improve your chances of success by following the right principles. Before building your app consider who your ideal user would be. Are you building a game for a certain demographic? Is it for people in a particular country or region, or do you want your app to have global appeal? Knowing your user before you build your app will help you make strategic decisions from the beginning. We spoke to Polish app developer Szymon Klimaszewski whose Blood Pressure app has become one of the most downloaded health apps from the Google Play Store.
He set out to build a blood pressure monitoring app that was quick and easy to use. He expected the app to be popular with older users and this influenced his approach to design. For most people the app is very intuitive and quick to use. Developers should identify what makes their idea unique, and ask themselves what problem they’re trying to solve. By focusing on these two things, they’ll be able to concentrate on delivering a quality app that provides value to their users.
Artavazd Mehrabyan is the founder of PicsArt, an app development company with a passion for photography. Their wildly successful PicsArt Photo Studio app is the most popular photo-editing app on Android with over a million ratings. He set out to build a feature-rich photo app unlike any other – and with that came risks.
You and your Volkswagen. Happily connected.
