A new gay dating app is promising to end those uncomfortable surprises.
In a news release, Rob Whent, President and Chief Executive Officer of WeCam Technologies, declares a new mobile device features first-of-its-kind live video interaction.
“A site that redefines the homoerotic, ManCrunch is provocative, kinky and dripping with sex appeal,” Whent said.
ManCrunch’s arrival comes as other mobile gay dating apps are under heavy criticism for fake profiles and phishing scams. In a letter to SFGN, reader Jeromy Carpenter blasted the mobile app Grindr for how it handled complaints.
“Recently, there has been a flood of fake profiles obviously operated by braindead pieces of shit who are phishing for phone numbers,” Carpenter writes.
ManCrunch claims that will not happen on its platform, touting the app’s ability to curb profile “surprises” while connecting users to the global market.
“One of the things we know for a fact is that people are put off by profiles where what you see is not what you get,” said Avid Life Media, Inc. President Noel Binderman. “We felt that the time was right to leapfrog the competition by offering a dating app that features video chat allowing everyone to ‘get real’ when it comes to dating.”
Binderman claims ManCrunch Mobile is setting an industry standard. The ManCrunch website has been operational since 2010 and was the subject of much controversy for having its Super Bowl advertisement rejected.
ManCrunch claims more than 175,000 members worldwide with a 30 percent rate of growth since 2012.
