For those looking for easier ways to connect with potential matches, the Once app on iTunes is for you. College students will gravitate to this app the due to its ability to generate one potential match a day. This can give someone time to connect with the match and hopefully gain a connection as opposed to being overwhelmed with hundreds of matches prevalent with other apps. Also the app has many privacy features and can allow the user to display first name, height, age and the city they live in.  The app also shows how far or near the person who is matched to you is.

The Once app is very simple to use, just create your profile and request to be matched. One matched with a profile you can message them. Another benefit that the app has is that it allows only allows you to see the person who you are matched with and vice versa. This keeps a sense of privacy and allows you to focus on a potential match one at a time.  With college kids minds all over the place this app can be what many need when it comes to dating.

This app is 12.9MB and is located in the lifestyle section of the Apple store!  It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and besides it being Apple exclusive you must be 17-years-old to download. This is due to mild sexual context and nudity as well as mature and suggestive themes. The app is available in various languages such as English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish. Even though the app has many cool features it unfortunately there is little known about users’ experiences due to few customer ratings.

This app has the potential to become popular with college students. However, due to its limited exposure and it being relatively new, it might take some time for the people to catch on.
