CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack'd, the fastest growing gay social app among young adult gay men, announced today that it has reached more than two million Android users in over 180 countries and rolled out important updates to the Android version of its app. With 80 percent of its 5 million members aged 18 to 30, it's no surprise that 40 percent of Jack'd users are also Android device owners. Starting today, users can enjoy the new updated Android app from the Google Play Store.


Jack'd prides itself on letting users feature up to three public photos right on a member's profile page and the ability to share up to 2 pictures privately. With new enhanced photo sharing, Android users now have the ability to share and swap as many photos as they want while chatting, putting the Jack'd Android app on par with its iPhone app, which already offers this feature.

Key updates include:

    --  New photo upload and sharing features
    --  New spam trapping and reporting features
    --  General bug fixes
    --  Enhanced user experience
    --  Faster and more responsive interface

"With more than 2 million Android users on Jack'd, we understand how important Android users are to the Jack'd community," said Adam Segel, Jack'd chief executive officer. "The new updates will allow for a more seamless experience for Android users when connecting with individuals around the globe, as well as down the street."

Today's app updates are some of the first of many major upgrades scheduled for Jack'd. Since acquiring Jack'd in late 2013, Online Buddies has been quick to respond to user feedback and to deliver its standout features to all users across multi-devices. The spam trapping and new reporting features that are being deployed on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 will also serve iOS versions of the Jack'd app.
