Cheekd reimagines online dating with a new app that makes missed connections obsolete. Cheekd uses a cross-platform low energy bluetooth technology, which fosters hyper local engagement. The app connects people in real time, versus virtual time. Connections begin in person; Cheekd helps you take the next step and continue the conversation online.
Cheekd ensures you ‘Never Miss a Connection’; thanks to this new Bluetooth technology, the app works on the train; on a plane... anywhere. You’ll get a notification if someone who meets your criteria is within 30 feet of you. If you’re near a potential spark, Cheekd makes sure you know about it.
Finding interesting people shouldn't be a full-time job. Let bluetooth be your wingman.

Great Idea, Better Execution Needed
Saw this project on Shark Tank and personally have met the founder on a social event, want to share my honest opinion. They background story of the founder and idea of standing out as a dating app is great and clicks very well but the actual product not so much.
I think first of all this app should have a traditional features and structure as every other dating app that proved their concepts. And only then, additionally, it should stand out with the unique element of Cheek’d Cards and Bluetooth scanning. Otherwise competition is almost impossible for this business. I think hiring a newly graduated business student as a chief who has an enthusiasm and talent to drive this (still startup phase) company to success would be great.
I also think something’s wrong with marketing too. The app is using advanced technology and a creative way / concept of finding matches which would be perfect for millennials yet it looks like it’s made for people 40+. Outdated iPhone 6 hero picture on the website, dark red color scheme, cheap user experience and design inside the app drops the ball big time for the first impression. The branding and marketing needs a big overhaul.
Overall I give kudos to the founder for strongly believing in her idea even after years of no success. I think right direction and asking for help (not only financial but also management) will make the success come true. Good luck!!
Had for over a month now and haven't even seen another user. Great concept tho
Boyfriend and I are watching Shark Tank and wanted to give this app a go. He created a profile first and couldn’t find a human without 100 miles. Then I created one as well. We both experienced issues uploading profile photos — it said “invalid file type”. Once we found each other in the app, we couldn’t even start a conversation with each other. Additionally, if you enable location while using the app, it doesn’t just help you find matches within a specified distance. It actually shows your location on your profile... where’s the security/safety?? I hope Lori Cheek begged Christian Dior for her old job back.
