Yes, to further ensure that all our Spark users are real people, we use Facebook to authenticate you. But don’t fret, we’ll never ever post anything without your permission.
We think that if you feel attracted to someone in real-life, why do you need to know their age? Just a number, right?
We’re working on the ability to let you personalise your notifications within Spark, but for now just head over to your iPhone settings and you’ll find them in the notification centre.
Great question, brownie points for asking. Without getting too technical, Spark uses bluetooth to connect you to those nearby. Meaning that instead of your phone having to connect to the internet then back down to the phone of the person you're Sparking, Spark connects you directly. So you can Spark quite literally wherever you are!
When there’s someone near you that you like, first check that they appear on your home screen. If they do, simply tap on their photo, then tap and hold to Spark!
No, it will only ever be received once you’ve parted ways.
Your person of interest will have just 24 hours to respond. So you’ll know in that time whether they too felt that connection.
Nope. Even if you accidentally become too excited by our beautiful Spark interface. Once sent, there’s no turning back.
Approximately 30 metres.
You can view any available received Sparks by tapping the notification button underneath the Spark header. Select the received Spark you wish to respond to, then tap and hold to Talk.
No way! Your Talk screen is sacred to both us and you. Only the people you Spark, or choose to Spark back will appear here. Not only that, before sparking the only information they will ever receive is your one and only photo (not even your name).
Your Talk screen is sacred, we think it shouldn’t get clogged up with the people you don’t actually talk to, and we’ve designed Spark to echo that. So keep the conversation flowing, as conversations with no engagement will fade away :(
Simply press the settings button at the bottom right-hand side of the home screen and tap Get Sparks.
