The young developer of Veep, a new social hookup app has revealed the app acquired 5000 users in the first week following its launch on the App Store.
Veep is a new social platform that provides users with a simple way to connect with people who are nearby, and share similar interests.
Its unique interest system allows users to mark their individual interests with emojis, which are then used to filter through users and pair them with others who have marked similar options.
It’s 19-year-old developer, Hunter Harris told VentureBeat: “Before I made Veep I noticed how nearly all of the other popular social discovery apps didn’t really have a way to search for someone who’s into the same stuff you are. So when making Veep I capitalised on that.”
The app is completely free to use, and does not offer its users any in-app purchases or advertising.
Users are also not required to sign up using their Facebook profiles, and Veep’s messaging feature are in not restricted, allowing users to chat for unlimited amounts of time.
However, it does require access to your location, so that profiles can be matched with others nearby.
Veep is currently only compatible with iOS devices, but if its early success continues, it is likely the app will launch for Android devices in the near future.
