Online dates have become the norm with the prolific introduction of sites like Match, e-Harmony or apps like Tinder and Bumble. While these sites and apps are a great way to meet potential mates in today's fast pace world, online dates can also go sour. Enter in the BOD dating app. The premise of the app is to pair people who are both on bad online dates.
The geo-location based app gives users the chance to escape a horrible date and meet someone new in the same area in real-time. The company likes to call it a user's 'plan-b.' BOD may be competition for apps like Tinder, which are also geo-based.
While the idea of BOD is interesting, the app would likely work best in heavily populated areas. The biggest hurdle is creating a large consumer base so that its users have a higher chance of connecting with someone new.
