From Germany to the UK: new gay app nearox combines dating with real social networking

HAMBURG, Germany, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fascinating, cool, revolutionary: Germany's gay community goes crazy for nearox, the first app that promises to offer gay men some of today's most desired features: dating and social posting. With its unlimited access to nearby users for free, nearox goes head-to-head with competitors such as Grindr, Scruff and Gaydar. And now there's good news for UK users: nearox will debut its app today, 22 October 2013, with a bang, including launch parties at clubs, bars and gay venues in London, Brighton and Manchester.

"'Facebook meets dating' is probably the best way to describe nearox," says nearox founder Heiko Fuchs. "Users are able to post content just like they would on Facebook, but on nearox, all nearby users – not just friends – can see those posts. This way, nearox makes finding new mates easier than ever before."

And as for nearox policies, Fuchs says, "in contrast to Facebook, nearox embraces gay content, such as pictures of men kissing men."

The result is what the app's creators call "German (m)engineering": verified profiles, free push notification, 15 profile pictures, 200 interests, last online timestamp, profile notes, visitor's list, user filter search, city beaming, events, locations, radio, user ranking results, stamps and many more.

It gets even better on nearox prime – the subscription version of nearox – with DeleteMe, a first-of-its-kind feature in the gay chat app realm that deletes photos once they're sent and viewed by the recipient; StealthMe, which lets users search anonymously; and a longer chat history. nearox prime offers all this and more technologically advanced features at a fee much lower than what competitors charge for premium versions of their apps.

In a very short amount of time, nearox became Germany's most popular gay app according to user reviews in the app stores. nearox has already established a strong foothold in its home base and other German-speaking countries, aiming to become the predominant app of its kind.

nearox is available in the iTunes App Store for iPhone, iPad, iPad mini and iPod touch and in the Google Play store for Android devices.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
