SpeedDate.com, the first company to bring speed dating online a few years ago, announced today the availability of its iPad app, SpeedDate (free). A version for the iPhone/iPod touch – SpeedDate for iPhone (free) – debuted in early 2009 and has been a regular in the Top 100 free Social Networking apps list.
Much like the in-person version of speed dating where people meet others in multiple “mini-dates” that last a few minutes each and decide whom they’d like to see again afterward, SpeedDate allows members to go through almost the same process online through live chats.

The company’s apps offer members the option to take their online speed dating anywhere. Also, for a limited time only, the iPad app will allow members to contact all members for free – this ability normally requires a Premium membership that costs $15.99 per month.
SpeedDate for the iPad allows singles to browse photos and profiles in great detail, search for matches and quickly connect while on the go. The application is tailored to the iPad’s unique user experience taking advantage of its large 9.7 inch high-resolution screen and touch navigation interface and is an extension of SpeedDate Mobile, the market’s number one online dating app for the iPhone and iPod with over one million unique downloads.
To celebrate the release of its iPad app, SpeedDate is giving away iPads and other prizes over the next couple of weeks:
iPad Givaway: From May 14 to May 28 SpeedDate will give away new iPads along with full year subscriptions to its premium membership service to two lucky registered users who will be chosen at random. To have a chance to win simply create a free account by visiting https://www.speeddate.com.
