    PURE: The new sex oriented app.

    http://getpure.org/en/

    Will it pick up steam and become as successful as Grindr? Will it make Grindr more or less sex oriented? Grindr has 3 options:

    - Do nothing: if PURE doesn't end up successful, Grindr will only have to wait for its death
    - Become dating oriented: if PURE manages to become popular, Grindr may choose to differentiate itself becoming less propitious for sexual encounters
    - Become even more sex oriented: Grindr may lose paying users. It may react by imitating some of PURE's best functionalities... but it would also bring down Grindr's "not made for sex" rhetoric

    I'm pretty sure PURE will join Jack'd, Hornet, Growlr, Scruff and the other gay apps in the same boat.

    We need a FRIENDSr app for guys who are brave enough to meet a nearby stranger to talk about the mutual interests they find in their short profiles.

    Especially for travelers this would be great.
    You're in London and your profile tells everyone that you're into new music. 544 ft away is a guy having coffee who invites you over to tell you what he knows.
    Likewise you'd enjoy helping a traveler in your town.

    Location based apps need to be applied to our other social connection needs besides dating and hookups.

    It's so "two-thousand-and-late".

    Here's from the current craigslist strictly platonic section for your area

    Run your manly hands down the curve of my back, over my glutes, exploring the shadows of my inner thighs. Lay your lips upon my flesh, its hardness overwhelmed.

    So many fake profiles on these apps. Beware.
