Get matched up with potential nearby dates


Rate this App

happn is a rather peculiar social app that lets you know if you're about to cross paths (in the street, in a restaurant, on the bus, wherever) with someone that you might like to know.

Using happn is as simple as signing up for the service through Facebook and leaving the app running in the background on your phone. From then on, whenever a person who also has the app installed is nearby, you'll receive a notification.

In happn's settings, you can indicate the type of people you'd like to meet. That way, you can set it up so you only receive notifications for men or women, or people in a particular age range (for example, 18–28).

After receiving the notification, you can start chatting with that person, and, in a few seconds, decide whether you want to continue talking face-to-face.

happn is a different sort of app for meeting new people, though it only works if there are enough users in your area. Nonetheless, you're likely to find it handy if you want to date someone nearby.

For that reason, we've made a list of a few apps that make it easier for us to act on these cardinal vices using our smartphones.
