Homegrown apps hope their understanding of local cultural norms will give them a leg up over global rivals such as US-based Tinder, which has millions more users but which is seen as a conduit for finding sexual partners, as well as friends.
To allay female members' concerns about unwanted advances at face-to-face meetings, Peekawoo initially offered chaperones on request and Singapore-based LunchClick makes checks to ensure its local users are really single. But, like most apps, making money out of a service that is initially offered for free is a challenge.
Many apps are linked to user Facebook profiles, which makes it possible to roll out targeted advertising. Some, like Paktor, the region's most popular app with some five million registered users, offer in-app purchases: It is also looking into striking deals with restaurant booking apps. You can also meet up and get to know different friends in our chat rooms and socialize with them.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words and a video is at least a thousand pictures! We created a video based social dating app, because you can express yourself much better with videos, chat, meet and date with new people much easier. Unlike other dating apps, Peekawoo is free and lets you meet people nearby without any fees. Make new friends nearby or around the world in our group chat rooms or by making matches and using our private inbox feature.
