Reveal Your Secret Crushes With A Gamified Dating App Feature Called CrushTime

CrushTime is a new feature of the popular global app happn which allows you to discover other users with hyper-geolocation technology.

You could be walking down the street, at a café or at a hot party and see someone you instantly like the look of. But then what?

The app displays a timeline of the people you have crossed path during the day. If you find an individual you like and what to connect with, then you can ‘say Hi’. If the interest is mutual (they liked you as well) then you can start an -in-app conversation.

The app allows you to see four profiles with only one of them liking you. You then need to guess who your secret crush is. If you guess correctly, you can ‘say hi’ and a conversation can ensue!

CrushTime was developed by happn after a design thinktank session held with Google.

“CrushTime reinforces our company manifesto to ‘Make chance happn’, adding another tool to optimize chance and empower users, helping them to make the best out of fortuitous crossings. In order to support this ambition, we have introduced Artificial Intelligence in our system, innovating in a constant spirit of concern for the benefit of our users.” said Didier Rappaport, CEO and co-founder of happn.

This feature is currently available to female users, and will be available to male users in coming weeks.
