These last couple of days were very exciting for us. We kept on receiving great comments from people who read about us on news sites, and we wanted to share some of the news stories.
The Daily Mail, UK’s biggest newspaper, reviewed Whiplr thoroughly. One of the feats it mentioned was safety: “Most importantly the login remains anonymous and private, so users don’t have to worry about Whiplr linking to their Facebook pages or sharing their personal information… In addition to the app’s secure login, you can keep your messages and videos from falling into the wrong hands thanks to the app’s ability to delete shared content from both your device and the Whiplr user to whom you sent it to.”
Mirror, also one of the major UK newspapers, mentioned Whiplr on its website. The article addresses Whiplr’s crowd: “Whiplr advertises itself as a “messenger with kinks” and offers fetish fans to find partners who live nearby… It lets adventurous lovers search for people with varying levels of kinky experience or those into certain “fashions”, which means leather or rubber rather than normcore.”
Cosmopolitan, that famous women’s magazine we’ve all heard about, wants fetish to become more mainstream, saying “Go forth, kink community. Go forth”. It tells the readers more about Whiplr: “Whiplr is location-based like most other dating apps, but it doesn’t link to your Facebook or share any personal information, and allows you to specify exactly what kinky shit you’re into so people know what they’re getting (or in some cases, giving).”
and, Marie Claire, a ground breaking women’s magazine, reviews what kind of kinks Whiplr users can choose: “The ‘kink’ factor is sorted into categories based on what you’re into or curious about—think sounds, behavior, or accessories. These help you match up with other potential messaging partners.”
