London: GPS just landed itself a sleazy purpose –to boost the odds of getting “lucky” on a night out by up to 90 per cent.
The dating application, called LocalSin, uses GPS technology to find the nearest ‘willing’ matches in your immediate area.
The app, which caters to men and women of all sexual preferences, gives users access to a real-time ‘passion map’, a list showing the location of ‘compatibles’ – other users with similar interests or profiles – in the area.
They are then able to contact each other directly and propose a meeting. Recipients must approve an ‘interaction request’ first, and can also choose to hide their real location.
It uses GPS-style software to provide users with a real-time list of ``willing`` singles in the immediate area.
The system means users can check how many singles are in a given place - such as a bar, nightclub, or city centre - before heading out.
A spokesman for the firm said the technology, which is also downloadable as a free LocalSin mobile app, has the potential of significantly increasing the chances of ``pulling`` success.
“This is going to revolutionise the dating game. It allows men and women of all sexual preferences to locate and link-up with other willing users in the vicinity,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
“By doing so, it minimises the hassle of moving from one bar to another in search of single people and could easily increase pulling success by at least 90 per cent,” he added.
