ACME AtronOmatic Releases Bandana - The Gaydar App for the iPhone/iPad/iPod

ACME AtronOmatic, Bandana, Gaydar App, iphone ipad app,, gay software, lgbt news, gay news, lgbt, gay, software, lesbianOrlando, Fla., July 1, 2010 /LGBT News/ ACME AtronOmatic, a software development company, has released their newest application, "Bandana - The Gaydar App" for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, a cool social networking application for the Gay and Bisexual community.

The application employs a patent-pending method that uses the device's Bluetooth radio to broadcast a special signal that can be picked up by other nearby users with a similarly-equipped device. The end result turns your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch into an actual "gaydar detector" with a range of up to 100 feet.

"What gay man hasn't at one time thought, 'Wow, wouldn't it be great if there was some kind of gaydar detector that would tell you if someone was gay or not'," says Oscar Flemming, lead developer at ACME AtronOmatic. "With this app in your pocket, you can have exactly that."

The free application, now available on the iTunes App Store, allows users to create a public profile along with a photo. Then, in order to use the gaydar feature, the user starts the app, turns on their "gaydar beacon", and places the device in their pocket. Whenever they walk within range of another user also running the app, the device will "ping" or vibrate (depending on the device's volume settings) to let you know that another gay person is nearby. A quick check of the display shows the profile of the user (or users) in range.

"It's perfect for those occasions when you're out in a public setting, say a gym, or a grocery store, a concert ... or even a subway, and you want to know if anyone else nearby is playing for your team," says Flemming. "Want to know if that hot guy you just passed in the airport is gay? Break out your Bandana!"

The application can function in areas without Internet connectivity; any contacts made with the Bluetooth radio are stored offline, and can be reviewed later when the network is available. This allows the device to function in places like a subway or other location where Internet access is not available.

Aside from the gaydar feature, the app also supports profile browsing and private one-on-one chatting commonly found in other gay-oriented apps. Users can further customize their profile by selecting "interests", allowing users to search for profiles based on matching interests.

The app also has a "confirmed gay" feature, allowing users to configure privacy settings such that their gaydar signal is only detectable by other "confirmed gay" users. In order to become a "confirmed gay" user, you must be approved by an already-existing "confirmed gay" user.

Bandana - The Gaydar App is available now on the iTunes App Store.
