Gay.com Goes Mobile
Gay.com is arguably the most popular site for making man-to-man connections. And for the first time, the social networking site – which is operated by Here Media – has launched a mobile version for smartphones and tablets (hello, iPad!). The mobile version offers all of the usual access to membership (this morning more than 6,000 men were logged on and ready to, um, chat), but taking a page from other apps like Grindr, it now also offers a location feature that allows you to connect with real people in the region.
The site also offers features from sister sites like Out and The Advocate, including exclusive interviews with celebs galore.
The mobile upgrade also means that die hard users (you know who you are) don’t have to download an app or additional software to access profiles on the go. Mobile users can also still view photos, access email and connect with members whether you’re stuck in the office, out for happy hour or cruising down at the shore.
Traveling Gay.com members can even pre-set travel destinations to find out who’s online in a destination city – before you get there. Guess it makes choosing between, say, Rehoboth and Fire Island all the more complicated.
