The League Has Now Launched On Android

Android
Elite dating app The League is now available on Android.

The exclusive dating app founded by Amanda Bradford was first launched for iOS in San Francisco back in 2015.

Since then, the app has expanded to New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago and Washington D.C.

Speaking about its Android launch, Bradford said: “Opening up The League’s community to Android users is something we wanted to do yesterday.

“By design, The League’s target demographic is incredibly small ­– we’re only accepting 10­ to 20% of users who sign up.

“Opening up to Android allows us to double our user base without lowering our acceptance standards, while also increasing diversity of our user base.

“We can also now finally expand internationally, ­ something we plan to do this spring.”

During a four month beta testing of its Android version, The League discovered that Android users replied 76% more often than those on iOS, and were 24% more likely to take things offline and go on a date.

Interestingly, Android users were also found to be 63% less likely to ghost, compared to iOS users.

The League is an exclusive dating app which seeks to create a community of singles looking for “like-minded, ambitious professionals”, requiring them to register with both a LinkedIn and Facebook account.

From here, singles go through an internal screening algorithm that decides whether someone is allowed entry.

In April last year, The League launched version 2.0 of the app and introduced a number of new features to help singles connect and converse, as well as seeking to reduce the pressure of dating online.

As part of the update, The League also brought in “League events” and “League groups”, which enable singles to enter group discussions and make plans with other like-minded individuals.
