What is Spotafriend?
Spotafriend is an app for teenagers to connect with other teenagers in their local area. The app works by swiping right on the pictures of those you would like to become friends with. If both users accept, they are matched and can private message one another. Spotafriend says it is intended as a friendship rather than a dating app, although there is no way to control how users use the app or if people over the age of 18 create accounts.
Apps: Android app, Apple iOS
