With just the swipe of a few buttons, the location-based software finds other Jews who are using the program nearby.
With the options of liking or passing on matches based on a small profile picture that appears, the user helps narrow the dating pool in his or her current geographical location.
Since it entered the scene in 1997, has been the premier online dating community for Jewish singles.
Boasting hundreds of thousands of members and a near-perfect 50-50 male-to-female ratio, JDate is an ideal place to find friendship, romance, and more.
So it’s no wonder that in its 17 years, JDate hasn’t faced much competition. As online dating becomes more tech-savvy and complex, Jewish dating is following suit.
Now there are a host of new services for Jewish singles, from the strictly Jewish JZoog to Tinder-based JSwipe.
The "sponsor" can then email the background form to his/her single talmid and ask them to fill in the details and email it back to the "sponsor".
JCrush, another app released in April, is quite similar to JSwipe.
After all, most people have their phones with them at all times and are able to log in anytime, anywhere, as opposed to their desktops. Since it’s much easier to access phone apps, mobile dating apps tend to be stickier for users – attracting people to check in when they are waiting in line or for a friend to meet them, or just bored.
The more often people are logging in, the more attractive it is to other potential users, which is what online dating companies want.
