As many as us know there are literally thousands of apps for either our cell phones or Ipads and I rarely pay any attention to them. But this one caught my eye Hot Or Not . It reminded me of the days when we would play games and rate the guys at school for how hot they were.
Many of you have probably already heard of Hot or Not, as it first debuted on the internet in 2000 as a rating site, allowing users to vote on other user's photos by rating their attractiveness. The site had a matchmaking service called “Meet Me” and an extended feature called “Hotlists.” Hot or Not inspired other social websites such as Facebook and YouTube. While there were a few other similar websites at the time, Hot or Not was the most popular, achieving over two-million hits in its first week.
Now, Hot or Not has been rebranded in the app word. The Hot or Not app, for the iPhone, iPad, or Android will allow you to connect up with your Facebook friends and friends of friends easily, and rate them.
To start, you must connect the app to your Facebook account. It wants to access your public profile, friend list, email address, birthday, interest, likes, current city, photos, and videos.
Once you connect the account, it is time for the rating. It shows you profiles closest to you first. When looking at a specific profile, you can rate the person hot (heart icon) or not (X icon). There is no numerical ranking, basically just a thumbs up or down. There isn't even a skip option. You can filter the profiles by gender or age, though.
Hot or Not is breaking out in new territory with its new app for cell phones. The app features the same basic principle as the old website did, but you now have access to Hot or Not in the palm of your own hands. The free app links can be downloaded athttp://www.tryhotornot.com. Or if you don't have a cell phone, you can access the app on Facebook.
To celebrate the new Hot or Not app, the company is having a $1,000 Sweepstakes. The winner will get a $1,000 gift card to the retailer of their choice. The giveaway ends February 15th! Enter the giveaway at: http://www.apptism.com/sweepstakes/
Overall, I think the new Hot or Not app is easy and fun to use. It is a great way to find new friends or dates in your area.
