Want to make new friends? Or looking for that new partner! But don’t have the time to go out and find that could be compatible to you?
Just recently a new mobile app was launched to make new friends easier or better yet find that new partner.
At first I am quite skeptical about the idea of using a mobile app in finding that new friend or partner. I downloaded the app and tried it to see if will be that effective. I saw people within my area who also downloaded Paktor and I would say they are reliable because Paktor uses Facebook account to be able to have access to it.
What is Paktor?
It is on this note that Paktor, the newest name in social networking, was developed. Launched in mid-June of 2013, Paktor is the brainchild of Joseph Phua and co-founders Christopher D’Cruz and Charlene Koh. A user-friendly app that allows people with similar interests to connect with one another, Paktor is built on the principles of locality, usability, and anonymity.
How to use Paktor?
The first thing a Paktor user will notice when signing up is how easy it is to do so. Unlike other apps that require users to fill-up several fields of personal information, Paktor allows you to sign in directly through your Facebook account, without having to modify any of your existing information.
All it takes is a simple two-click, 15-second process for new users to immediately browse for new friends. Additionally, those who have doubts about logging in through Facebook can be rest assured that Paktor will never post on your behalf on your Facebook wall, or require you to manipulate anything in your account.
Paktor’s lively and engaging graphical user interface also makes the experience more fun and easy; get to know people without having to read through lengthy, verbose profiles that may or may not be true. Users are also only able to view distance, friends in common, shared interests and additional photos before deciding if they would like to get to get know the person in the photo better.
The creators of Paktor believe that including the concept of locality in their app greatly increases the chances that people will actually meet. Other apps do not take into account the fact that users who are simply too far away from one another will find it difficult to set up actual meetings.
Utilizing your smart phone’s built-in GPS, Paktor allows you to locate users within your area who share similar interests, making the possibility of actual face-to-face encounters that much more real.
