Dating app Feverr wins ‘Space Oscar’ in European Space Week
A dating startup Feverr won Dutch competition for the most creative and new way of using satellite navigation technology.
The innovation of this app is that it automatically matches people that are close to each other and navigates them to a nearby meeting location.
The app doesn’t have a chat function and aims to make people meet offline in real life more often.
DNA dating startup Pheramor shuts down – founder shares story
Dating app Pheramor, that uses DNA matching as its main forte, now shuts down.
The reason is that Apple unpublished the app from the App Store as the new rules forbid dating apps from procuring DNA samples from users.
