Leaping Tiger, a location-based friend-finding app for gamers has just released on Android devices for the first time. iOS users have had the app since it launched for iDevices this past May.
Leaping Tiger is a social discovery tool for gamers who want a simple, easy way to make friends with people nearby who share similar gaming tastes. The app allows users to quickly find individuals to play with, consolidate their gamertags across all platforms, and engage with the surrounding community of gamers in their area.
Leaping Tiger provides a growing list of intuitive features on their iOS and Google Play store pages that allow users to:
Create a Player Profile – Members can create a player profile housing all of their gamertags, so players with similar interests have the option to connect
Check-In – Leaping Tiger lets the world know what games members are playing at that moment
Instantly Connect – After finding a potential friend, users can instantly begin chatting, making it easy for gamers to organize online play sessions and meetups with the local community
Find Local Gamers – Leaping Tiger prioritizes active members in a user’s area so gamers can locate others who share the same time zone, before searching worldwide
Save Friends – After connecting with other Leaping Tiger members, users can save their favorite profiles to make future interactions via direct message with those individuals a breeze
The founders of Leaping Tiger developed the app to fulfill the need for a simple and instant way to discover local gamers, emphasizing real connections over anonymity.
“If Foursquare and Tinder had a baby, and that baby was really into gaming, that’s Leaping Tiger” explains Amy Potter, founder of Leaping Tiger. “We have seen many social platforms move away from lengthy posts and extensive profiles, but social platforms for gamers have lagged behind. We think we are providing a product that is the evolution of the online social experience for gamers. We offer a streamlined set of tools to help the community instantly connect.”
Gamers interest in trying out the app on their own mobile device can do so for iOS here and for Android here. What do you think of this app? Will you be using it to find new gamer friends in your area? Let us know in the comments.
Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ.
My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up.
I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities.
My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
