Gay dating app calls it quits

Chappy is ending its relationship with your phone, which means the only remaining apps for same-sex meetups are now Grindr, Tinder, OKCupid, Bumble, Scruff, Growlr, and if you’re kinky, Christian Mingle. Oh, and the several other smaller ones we’re not listing. In other words, it’s a saturated market out there, and ultimately Chappy couldn’t retain a dating pool big enough to thrive. The gay dating app will be folded into Bumble, which had been an investor since Chappy’s launch in 2017. AdBrid...

Meet the NYC woman getting paid $5,000 to fix clients' dating apps and 'ghost banter' with their matches

Amy Nobile founded Love, Amy in April 2019 to help people find love on dating apps after meeting who she calls "the love of her life" on Bumble post-divorce. Nobile conducts photoshoots for dating app profiles, holds sexting consultations, and "ghost banters" with clients' matches.  Less than a year in, Nobile has built a full-fledged business from word-of-mouth, transforming a side-hustle into a service that charges clients $5,000 for three months.

New bill would make it illegal to send an unsolicited nude photos in California

When Ling Ling Chang was a state assemblywoman making her first bid at a California senate seat in 2016, she wanted to make herself more accessible to the public.

As a founder, you need to have a good knowledge of the industry that you are in. To grow a profitable startup, you need to gain insights on everything from launching a business to growing it into a global brand.

Blindlee is Chatroulette for dating with a safety screen

Make space for another dating app in your single life: Blindlee is Chatroulette for dating but with female-friendly guardrails in the form of a user-controlled video blur effect. The idea is pretty simple: Singles are matched randomly with another user who meets some basic criteria (age, location) for a three minute ‘ice breaker’ video call. The app suggests chat topics — like ‘pineapple on pizza, yay or nay’ — to get the conversation flowing. After this, each caller chooses whether or not to ma...
