When you are single, often times the most exciting part about going out is the hope that you’ll be able to flirt with and meet some other singles. But Chicago has a ton of bars to go to on any given night. And how many times have you taken the effort to get dressed up only to find there is no one there to meet? You consider going to a different bar but then you wonder if you will only experience the exact same situation at another place. So you’re not sure what to do.
Well, wouldn’t it be great if there was some way to avoid that whole annoying process? Even better, wouldn’t it be awesome if you could tell what bars single people were hanging out at. And not just what bars are popular for singles but what bars singles are currently at during the exact time you are out on the town.
Enter in MojoMapp, an app for the iphone founded by Nancy Chan and Stéphane Nguyen, which does just that. In a recent interview with Nancy, she explained that she has had many nights of trying to decide what bar to go to and then getting all dressed up only to feel like she was the only single person in the bar. She figured that couldn’t be true and wanted to know how to find other singles.
MojoMapp shows you which bars in Chicago (or whatever city you are in) that have the most single girls or guys there right now. All you have to do is check in (anonymously) as a single guy or girl and the app displays the singles that are there. It also shows the singles at the bars close to your location so you can pick which one you want to go to. You can also post on the virtual wall of your bar and then if someone comments on your post, the two of you can enter a private chat room.
The best thing is that MojoMapp is exclusively for singles and it’s completely private. No names and no profiles. According to Nancy privacy was very important when creating the app. She went on to say how “it was made specifically to be a discrete and fun way of knowing exactly which bars have a good singles vibe right now.”
Currently Nancy and Stéphane are in the process of getting approval for the app and expect it to be available for download in about a week. They are planning to officially launch in April. The app will be free for a limited time after the launch and there will be no monthly or annual fee for the service after the initial download. MojoMapp will only be available for the iphone initially but they expect to launch a version for the Android soon after.
