Manhunt.net, the world’s leading gay hookup site, announced yesterday, its new web-based mobile site that is easily accessible via iPhone, iPad and Android browsers at m.manhunt.net. The new Manhunt Mobile is not a native app, and therefore not subject to the adult content restrictions imposed upon competing mobile dating and hookup applications by Apple’s App Store and Google’s Android Market.
Manhunt Mobile is a touchscreen version of Manhunt.net that allows mobile users full access to the uncensored profiles of more than six million Manhunt members around the world. It also uses a mobile device’s GPS to instantly display nearby guys. The new, uncensored Manhunt Mobile is available now by tapping the iPhone or iPad Safari icon or Android globe browser icon and typing m.manhunt.net.
“The all-new Manhunt Mobile delivers all your favorite Manhunt features, including uncensored profile pics, wherever you are,” said Adam Segel, CEO of Manhunt’s parent company Online Buddies, at this morning’s announcement. “Regardless of what device they use, guys can access and communicate with all six million Manhunt members across platforms. Everything you need to find guys nearby, make new friends, get a date or hook up instantly is on your phone right now.”
Exciting new features are also being introduced with the launch of Manhunt Mobile. Members can access their Manhunt mail, Buddy List, Track List and Saved Searches from their mobile device. They can also update their profile and location, unlock pics and send winks just like on the desktop site.
There are new filtering options, too. Mobile users can sort guys by distance, age, build and position. They can even see who is checking them out with real-time Track List updates – Manhunt sends instant notifications to members’ Track List counters whenever a new guy visits his profile.
Seems to me Manhunt is saying “F.U.” to the Guidelines being enforced by Android and Apple’s iTunes App Store! Will be interesting if others will follow through.. is Grindr next?! Stay tuned for more updates here at GaySocialites!
