The OKCupid iPhone app at first glance seems like basically another way of perusing their thousands and thousands of profiles adjusted to work on a smart phone. It's nicely designed, pulling up relevant data, photos and connections.
But the app also apparently has a geo-locating feature. The app alerts you if someone that their algorhythms decide would be a good match for you is nearby. So that's I guess why I got the alert on my phone the other night.
Really not sure how I feel about it. Just felt a little creepy, like I was going to turn a corner and run into the person, holding up her phone with my OKCupid profile displayed. For now, I'm turning off the geo-locating sharing on my phone.
Am I just being paranoid?
