Checkm8 is an iOS application that uniquely connects users with people around them. The key to Checkm8: mutual interest between users without the fear of rejection. Here’s how it works: Check-in to a location and view the other Checkm8 users nearby. When two users ‘check’ each other, Checkm8! Otherwise, the interested party’s ‘check’ is not revealed. Checkm8s can safely chat through the in-app messenger to gauge whether they have more in common.

With Facebook as the dominant social network focusing on maintaining relationships, Checkm8 Labs anticipates friend discovery as the next major movement in the social space. “So many connections are missed because people are afraid to approach someone for the first time. Our vision is to replace that anxiety with the excitement of a Checkm8,” says David Christino, Founder of Checkm8 Labs, Inc.

Checkm8 can be used with facebook friends, people that users see everyday or those they have yet to meet. Now meeting people is easier in any setting - from coffee shops to classrooms to live events.

Currently Checkm8 is only available to Facebook account holders for identity verification. Checkm8 displays first name and last initial, profile pictures and number of Facebook friends. Users decide what other personal information they would like to share. Users can be blocked at anytime. Checkm8 uses Facebook information to separate certain age groups such as minors and people 18 and older. Users 13 to 17 are only viewable to their facebook friends.

Checkm8 has been operating in private BETA since February 2012.
