420 Friends Is A Dating And Networking App For Stoners

The 420 Friends app was launched in Apple App Store in February 2017 to cater to 420-friendly singles. Till this release, it has put together a community of over 30K stoners from all around the world.

"The user base is way too small, we know, but the retention rate is high," said Ms. Wu, the developer/co-founder of the app. "We are glad to see members continuously come back to check messages and play around."

When asked how the app came into being, the developer said, "I was inspired by Facebook and Tinder. If you love smoking weed, you must have found lots of groups on Facebook specifically for people who smoke weed. Many of these groups have over 20K members. It occurred to me that why not build an app and offer more functions, like swiping to find mutual interests."

"One friend of mine asked me, why would a stoner date another stoner? My answer was, 'if your girlfriend or boyfriend hates you smoking weed, chances are big that your other core value wouldn't match. Period.' It's like when a foodie dates another foodie, they can travel the world and enjoy all sorts of foods together. So when a stoner dates another stoner, when both of them enjoy Netflix and chill, their common interests will make the connection between them stronger, and make the time spent together happier and meaningful."

420 Friends app is only available for iPhone users in the Apple App Store. Download it here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1202139076
