MeetMe Launches On Amazon App Store

Meet Me

Social discovery app MeetMe has just launched on another of the main app stores, Amazon Appstore.

The dating and social app can now be downloaded from the store by Android phone and tablet users.

The company joins apps like Tinder, Plenty of Fish, and Zoosk in launching on the Amazon store.

Geoff Cook, the CEO of MeetMe said: “We are excited to make MeetMe available to the millions of people who use the Amazon Appstore.

“With this additional download channel, MeetMe becomes even more accessible and, we believe, will be able to help even more users find new people with whom to chat and connect.”

Recently, MeetMe settled a lawsuit which claimed various features used on MeetMe that allow users to meet new people were not suitable for young users, and called for revisions to be made to ensure the safety of minors using the network.

In settling the lawsuit, MeetMe agreed it would not communicate the locations of minor teens any more narrowly than their city and state.

In addition to this, the company said it would not show their proximity to others users any closer than “within one mile,” and the location sharing option will be “off” by default for minor teens.

The San Francisco-based app was also required to pay $200,00 to the City Attorney’s Office to settle all claims for damages, attorneys’ fees and other costs.
