Soone is a dating app that keeps things real, safe, and catfish-free

Dating apps are a mixed bag.

Everyone below a certain age knows the benefits of services like Tinder and Grindr. They help people find others who share their interests and ambitions at the push of a button.

But it’s not just gravy. For every successful encounter, there are countless failed encounters, normally preceded by days of messages going nowhere.

That’s why we’re excited to try out Soone, a smart new app with a simple goal: keep the good stuff from dating apps and weed out the bad stuff.

Of course, it’s not just a dating app. Soone also helps you build business and social ties. And it does it in the easiest, safest and most streamlined way.

Like most social login apps, Soone lets you customize your profile with a number of different interests. It also lets you indicate what you’re looking for, so potential matches know whether or not to approach you.

Once you’re up and running, Soone keeps things fast. If a connection request isn’t answered within 30 minutes – bam – good to go. And if a request is accepted, the parties involved have two hours to make their plans. After that, the chat box disappears.

It’s also secure, requiring users to verify their initial photo using the same type of facial verification technology Apple uses to unlock your phone. This makes it more or less impossible for cat anglers to peek.

Soone also provides you with public hotspots, where there are five or more other Soone users within a mile of each other. To be on the safe side, the app never shows specific locations – just rough heatmaps, to give you a general idea.

Plus, Soone only offers hangouts that it has certified as safe for visibility and security, giving you complete control and peace of mind.

All of this, and Soone is totally free, with no IAPs, subscriptions, or membership options.

Check it out now on the Google Play Store or the App Store.
