LOS ANGELES, Sept. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Joe Shapira, founder and architect of the Jewish dating juggernaut website JDate, is preparing to revolutionize the realm of Jewish romance once again. Shapira and his team are bringing Jfiix, a Smartphone app that promises to help the Jewish community meet their perfect partners in love, companionship, and of course, Hebrew, to the US market this coming Jewish New Year. Jam-packed with fast-paced features, Jfiix ditches the standard dating website's tedious initial questionnaires, pricey subscription model, and staged photos in favor of speedy membership activation via Facebook, completely cost-free membership, and a sleek, contemporary interface that greatly speeds the road to romance.
"Jfiix is the only Jewish dating app that combines the latest modern technology with the attention to detail of a more traditional dating website," Shapira explains. "We can help you find the love of your life, and we can do it quickly and easily. We consider this an exciting opportunity to further unite a younger generation of the Jewish community and slow down assimilation of its members. We recognize the extremely meaningful value of shared religious beliefs, but we also want to ensure that matches connect on other levels as well."
Jfiix has already experienced impressive success with a large pool of users, as it was launched in highly competitive Israeli market 18 months ago and has already gathered over 200,000 members, boding well for its reception in the US, the world's second largest Jewish community. Thus, it holds a unique advantage over other Jewish dating apps by making it possible for Jewish Americans, including members preparing for or returning from a Birthright trip, to search for Israeli members. Jfiix is confident that this feature will enhance the relationship between the two largest Jewish communities in the world, providing residents of both countries with a forum to connect with each other over shared heritage.
Jfiix serves as a wonderful happy medium between JDate, that many twenty-somethings find outdated and time-consuming; generalized apps like Tinder and Hinge, which present users with an overwhelmingly broad dating pool; and Judaism-specific Tinder-like apps like JSwipe, that indeed cater to Jews but provide very limited functionality and experience and skimp on comparing other very important areas of interest. Jfiix allows each individual to personalize and prioritize his or her interests, providing consumers with total control over the image of themselves that they are presenting to potential love interests – and improving their chances of finding their best possible match.
Jfiix will soon become available for cost-free download in both the Apple and Android app stores. Its parent company, fiix, was formed by Joe Shapira, and three younger entrepreneurs.
