Dating App LunchClick Killed In-App Chat

TECHINASIA - Nov 7 - LunchClick is a new dating app from a Singapore-based dating agency, Lunch Actually. It takes a few hours for users to go from downloading the app to using it. Every profile is exhaustively verified by humans to keep out creeps, fakers, and scammers. Users can't engage in small talk via in-app chat. There's no endless swiping either, as they only get one match a day. Instead of chat, LunchClick devised a Q&A-style interaction where matches take turns asking questions chosen from a predefined list. The app charges entry fees for singles meetup events, and will soon make money from restaurant booking fees, in-app purchases, and gifts.
