French innovation: happn app


French novelty happn

Thinking still about the man with the amazing smile you fleeting encounter passed on the road to work? You might even have locked your eyes for a short moment before seeing him disappear into the deep.

Well now there is a singles dating app to make sure those opportunities for love do not pass you by. French novelty happn sells itself being the application that saves us from our missed connections.

When you encounter someone in your real life, which in land of happn means being within a radius of 250m, you flash up on the screens of each other.

It’s a crush!/h2>

Then much like on Tinder, if you are interested in the suggestion, you press ‘like’ the match.

When there is a mutual appreciation, the application announces ‘It’s a crush!’ and then a romantic conversation can start.

The application has already been a big hit on home soil of French, attracting 150,000 members and then launching five weeks ago in the UK, nearly 25,000 hopeful British people have followed their direction.

Unlike its powerful Silicon Valley rival Tinder that now has over 10 million members worldwide, the French happn is a hook-up website with heart that has a somewhat more romantic premise.

The site explains that he’d have liked to meet you; you’d have liked to chat with him. Find again each other.

With happn, find the people you have crossed roads with, the people you love, the people you would like to find again!’


This application was set up by three Parisians – Antony Cohen, a computer engineer, Didier Rappaport, a serial entrepreneur, and Fabien Cohen, a legal hacker. It seems it is on the way to dating domination throughout the world, now with Berlin also on the map of happn.

Confidentiality and safety

The application is designed also to guarantee the confidentiality of members’ data and their safety.

Users’ positions aren’t saved and remain invisible completely to other users. Only the place of where these two people have encountered one another is registered.

Happn promises to never publish something about its users on Facebook and it makes also rejection absolutely painless.

You can make a decision at any given moment that a profile does not interest you and you will never cross paths with that one again on happn.

The rejected person will never even get known they have been given the boot.

Also you can report any undesired behaviour or block profiles by clocking ‘report’ on the profile of a person.

Members’ reviews

How do hopeful singles rate the application? ‘Happn l’app magnifique’ tweets one Frenchman.

‘Happn is simply the most helpful application ever,’ says another Scottish member. ‘See a hot man in the street? You can talk to him by passing by.’
