Happnʼs path crosses Budapest


Dating smartphone application Happn has been launched in Budapest, according to a press release issued by the company today. The application combines real-life experiences with online dating based on the phone users’ GPS location.

“We bump into hundreds of people every day. They are part of our life for a brief moment… before they disappear again,” Happn says, adding that with the help of the application we can meet those people again, despite having only briefly bumped into them.

According to the press release, the app lets you discover all the people crossing your path every day and tells you when, where, and how many times the two of you have met before.

The application counts more than 5 million users around the world, in cities such as Paris, London, New York, Barcelona, Madrid, San Francisco, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Mexico and Sao Paulo.

“We cross paths with so many people every day, but it can be difficult to seize the moment and make the most of opportunities to meet people offline. So we designed Happn with the real world in mind to give our users a chance at love at second sight and keep the digital to a minimal. We’re absolutely delighted with the support we’ve received so far and are looking forward to expanding into new markets in 2015,” Marie Cosnard, Spokesperson at Happn said.
