LAUREN KATIMS writes about how online dating is entering the iPad age for TIME.com
Apparently the iPad is getting ready to rock our sex lives — or at least help improve our search for someone to flirt with. In late May, Skout.com will become the first dating site to launch an iPad application. The free app will be similar to the version that’s already available to phone users: members can enter search criteria, such as age range, gender and physical preferences, and a HotMap will show in real time the locations of active Skout users who fit those criteria.
Because the iPad’s screen is large enough, it allows users to view the map while simultaneously chatting and searching through another member’s photos. (Membership is free, but the site charges $7 a month for features like finding out which members think you’re hot.)
From the sound of things, we can expect to see more apps like this coming soon.
