For the busiest or most impatient among us is now online speed dating — right on your iPad. A new app has been released by SpeedDate.com, and it facilitates connecting with compatible singles in your locality. This app allows for the searching, browsing and perusal of profiles, and then it hooks you up with your prospect for a three minute whirlwind “date” — using the term loosely. This date can be in the form of IM’s, live audio or video chat. The SpeedDate app allows for searching by geography, key words and physical attributes. Additional fields include marital status, number of children and level of education. The flirtatious “wink” feature is also present.

Although three minutes hardly seems sufficient to gauge your level of interest in a person — especially if only via IM — this can serve as a useful qualifying step aimed at avoiding potentially nightmarish first dates. Initial reports are that this service is attracting far more men as opposed to women — perhaps this relates to the higher level of male impatience. The app is not geared to facilitate random hook-ups, although nothing within its functionality would seem to preclude such usage.

The app is free, and it is compatible with all iPads running iPhone 3.2 OS or higher. Those looking to turbocharge their dating experience — or simply don’t have the time to waste on unproductive first dates — should check it out.
