There’s a new dating app in town and it’s making a serious splash. Brought to you by the guys who created Manhunt, Jack’d is a young, fresh and sexy app for dating and socialising.
It’s currently the most used gay app in Asia and keeps growing daily worldwide, faster than any of its competitors.
First launched overseas in 2011 it’s only recently been officially introduced to South Africa, thanks to local Jack’d representative Kevin Britz. The brand is now being promoted on sites like Mambaonline and at various local gay events.
Britz says that Jack’d is aimed at guys primarily between the ages of 18 to 29, from all backgrounds. But what makes it different from other dating apps?
“Our users are definitely what makes Jack’d different. We’re known around the world for our diverse user base. Jack’d has cemented itself as the app for ALL guys, no matter what scene you’re into,” he says.
Britz also comments that Jack’d isn’t just about hooking up (although, there’s that too!) but also offers more options to connect, make friends and stay in touch.
“We offer more pictures per profile than any other gay social app, and we encourage our users to include more information about themselves to make their profile more attractive and personal. We also have fantastic features that set us apart like our insight and match features,” he explains.
When asked how Jack’d relates to Manhunt, Britz replies that Manhunt remains unapologetically sexual and a safe space for men to seek out their fantasies. “Jack’d is a great tool for guys to meet up and interact based on interests, location and more. You can show your naughty side on Manhunt and your cool side on Jack’d,” he says.
“We think a place as diverse as South Africa will welcome Jack’d with open arms,” Britz adds. “You’ll see a lot of guys on Jack’d that you don’t see on other apps and the features we have also set us apart. Combine that with an amazing team that is eager to support our product in South Africa along with our partners and we have a winning solution.”
Britz reveals that the team is about to launch a Windows Mobile app and in the near future Jack’d will be coming out with an Apple Watch app, which will be a first!
Jack’d is free for all users, with an impressive array of free features. You do have the option to upgrade to Jack’d Pro which has no banner ads, more guys, unlimited matches and much more.
