LBT women now have their own hook-up app: Dattch, a sort of Grindr for women.
“After thousands of requests, we're now finally launching the app in Florida at the Girls In Wonderland festival in Orlando,” says Barbara Galiza, a Dattch spokeswoman.
“Dattch is the first ever app that has been built just for a female audience. Unlike gay men who have had years of using dating apps, the lesbian market has been completely underserved,” she says. “Until now.”
Here’s the Dattch news release:
After months of speculation and years of waiting, Dattch is finally launching for lesbian, bisexual and queer women in Florida. Known as ‘the opposite of Grindr’ Dattch is the first app designed only for women and it’s taking the country by
Dattch rose to fame in the UK and across the US by creating something unprecedented: a lesbian app that was actually designed for women, not a repurposed gay male app (unsurprisingly women aren’t just looking for a hookup).
After thousands and thousands of requests from the area, Dattch will finally launch in Florida at the Girls In Wonderland festival on 6th June.
“Florida has been needing an app like Dattch for years, an easy way to finally meet and chat with other women” says 27-year-old CEO, Robyn Exton. “We actually stop straight men signing up so users don’t need to worry about being pestered by guys and they can safely and enjoyably meet other women in their area.”
The app’s female driven user experience and beautiful design, clearly sets apart why an app for women is needed. With Pinterest inspired profiles, girls upload images to show who they really are, pulling in images from their Instagram and Facebook feeds.
To coincide with the launch they’re releasing 2 huge new features; picture messaging and the ability to see who has viewed your profile. Women look at a profile on average 3 times before sending a first message so for the more nervous users, there’s now an easier way to get chatting.
“We always knew that women were more comfortable using images to describe themselves and build their profiles but we had a huge demand from users to share images of what they were up to right now. Picture messaging finally allows that to happen so users can share their ‘here and now’ with anyone they are chatting with”.
Dattch will continue to launch in the US on a city by city basis and users can request for their city to be next by voting in the app. The minute 2000 requests from any city are received, Dattch will publish the app live.
