Match launches brand new app for iPhone and iPod Touch: Dating never looked so good

You know Match is the authority on all things dating, and we’ve got you covered on the go or at home with our completely redesigned app for iPhone and iPod touch. With a sleek new design, easier-to-use functionality and robust new iPhone-exclusive features like Stream and Mixer, our app offers you unique and engaging ways to discover the largest online community of singles. Check out the new app in the App Store here!

Beautiful New Design

The app’s innovative design provides a more user-friendly, customized experience that makes the most important content the easiest to access.  The design of the app helps singles make quick decisions without ever leaving a screen, keeping Match members focused on what they’re here to do – make connections.

See Endless Photos with Stream

Stream is our latest iPhone-only feature that serves you photos of singles by utilizing an innovative algorithm, finding the members who are closest to you. Stream highlights additional photos in a member’s profile in addition to the primary profile picture, helping you discover more of someone’s personality.

Make Quick Connections with Mixer

Mixer is another iPhone-exclusive feature that introduces you to new people at warp speed. By combining another exclusive algorithm using geographic location and the latest swiping technology, Mixer allows you to browse through profiles easier than ever before. 

View All Communication at Once with Message Threading

Messages are now organized by each conversation that you’ve had with another person, enabling you to preserve the history between you and a match. Want to look back on those first words you both exchanged? Simply scroll through your messages to find all your previous communications saved in text message format for easy referencing.

Additional Features

The new Match app has so much more to offer our members, including:

  • Easier photo uploading – you can now add a photo from three different places within the app’s interface
  • In-app notifications – we’re making it easier for users to stay connected
  • In-app purchasing – for the first time, we’re giving members the ability to purchase subscriptions and additional features while they’re signed into the app
  • More ways to communicate – chat with your matches throughout the entire app—from Stream, to your Daily Matches and even directly from a members’ photo. You can even communicate as soon as you launch the app!
