JDate Launches Upgraded Mobile Website Now With Secret Admirer Feature

Iconic Jewish Community Creates New Mobile Site to Build Better Relationships

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - A majority of singles agree their mobile devices make it easier to meet and start dating people they are interested in, according to a recent study by JDate® and ChristianMingle®. In an effort to even better connect Jewish singles, JDate, the iconic community already responsible for more Jewish marriages than all other dating sites combined, has launched a new mobile website to make Jews' search for love as simple as a tap and a swipe. With added features, such as JDate's popular Secret Admirer function, enhanced search capabilities and a fresh, new design, the 2.0 version of the site is more modern and user-friendly.

"The new JDate mobile site enables JDaters® to connect with one another and the community like never before," said Greg Liberman, CEO of Spark Networks®, the company that owns and operates JDate. "Our goal has always been to provide JDate members with the tools to meet others who share their culture, values and interests, and our new, easy-to-navigate mobile site puts best-in-class tools, quite literally, right at our members' fingertips."

The launch of JDate's enhanced mobile optimized site includes its widely-used Secret Admirer feature, now available on mobile. The patented Secret Admirer matchmaking game has long been core to JDate's desktop product, and the functionality translates perfectly to mobile. The first of its kind, this technology is a model that numerous new apps on the market license for use today. The Secret Admirer's "Yes-No-Maybe" functionality connects mutually interested users anonymously, eliminating the anxiety-provoking guess-work that often accompanies the dating experience.

JDate's new, mobile-optimized design also places key activities -- such as profile views and messages -- at the forefront of the experience for quick, on-the-go status checks along with real-time access to email messages, IMs, Favorites and Flirts. Additionally, JDate mobile's 2.0 experience allows members to easily make changes and improvements to their profiles from their mobile devices, allowing them to create more engaging profiles whenever and wherever they choose. Put simply, the new JDate mobile site provides existing and future JDate members with an easy-to-use mobile tool to support their search for love.
