In the interests of full disclosure, it is necessary for me to admit that I am married, so my experience with this app (for the purposes of creating this review), is entirely theoretical! That aside, in my brief time using the app, whilst thinking back to my single years, it was easy to see that Break the Ice has lots of potential!
The premise of Break the Ice is to help you find single people close to you (preferably in the same bar, shop, restaurant, etc) using the location capabilities of your smartphone. Once the app is installed and 'close by' people are located, you can anonymously say 'Hi". If the other person is interested in chatting, they can also say 'Hi', at which point the profiles of each person will be fully revealed (and with it, the anonymity). This is known as a 'match' and from there, you can freely chat with your 'matched' friends.
As with any social based apps, the key to success is obviously popularity. As the app is only new, there are not many people out and about, but this will surely increase over time. This is aided by a sleek, modern user interface that makes navigating around the app a a breeze.
All in all, once a few more users get on board, Break the Ice! will have the user base to back up what is already a sleek social networking / dating app, and with both iOS and Android versions availability, it might not be long before singles everywhere are 'Breaking the Ice' in an entirely new manner!
In the words of the developer:
Finally, a FREE social networking app that helps you instantly meet real people at your same location (bar, restaurant, coffee shop, party, grocery store, class, sporting event, etc.). Anonymously say “Hi” - no rejection or awkward introductions. Download BREAK THE ICE, quickly set up your profile & meet new people from your favorite hang-out. Privacy, security & safety are our top priority. It’s fun, exciting & easy to use!
