Bristlr gets push notifications

Push notifications are here

Push Notifications have eluded us for too long. And they elude us no more! With the release of Bristlr 1.4.0 on Android and 1.4.2 on iOS, Bristlr brings notifications right to you.

You’ll now get notifications when you get new messages, new matches, and when your daily matches are ready. We’ll still also send you emails from time to time (and if you’re not using the updated apps).

The new updates also fix a few bugs and make chatting even faster, which is nice.

We’ve timed the daily matches notification so it’ll hopefully not wake you up. You can turn all these notifications on or off in your settings.

10 Questions: Stephanie Wedderburn, Bristlr CMO

Stephanie Wedderburn, CMO

When you’ve got the nerve to ask everybody else these personal, beard-centric questions, it only seems fair that one should be willing to answer them themselves. And so, without further ado, here are my answers to Bristlr’s 10 Questions (needless to say, the beard-love runs deep here at Team Bristlr).

  1. Do beards excite your loins? There’s only one answer.

Yes, but why stop there? Chest hair, stomach hair, knuckles hair…

  1. By how much?

Tremendously.

  1. Which is your favourite beard? Why? Types of Beard

The action man – even coverage and not so long it bares risk of getting in the way of things.

  1. And your least favourite? Why?

The grand master. I’m yet to see someone pull this off who isn’t in a death metal band. Just doesn’t work walkin’ down the street you know?

  1. Your famous beard crush is…

Joe Manganiello. Definitely.

  1. What’s the best thing about Bristlr?

It appeals to a specific group of people, making it far more likely to meet someone that you’re actually likely to get on with than on your more generic dating sites.

  1. If we could add any new feature to Bristlr, what would it be?

Definitely want to see the tops beards in any given area. It might be on the horizon, who knows?!

  1. Any ‘hairy’ moments you’d like to share from the romance bank? Go on

I once walked into a fine, bearded man, whilst rubbing my belly and singing “I like you so much better when you’re naked” in a hungover, dazed state. This was during a hen weekend in Barcelona. Not one of my finest moments.

  1. Have you found love on Bristlr?

I’ve found the love of Bristlr, which is why I’m delighted to have joined the team!

  1. What does the future look like for you and Bristlr?

Very positive indeed. How can you be unhappy in your work, when you get to look at beautiful beards all day long?!

New faces, every day

How to find your daily matches

We’ve released a new experimental feature we’re calling “daily matches”.

Every day we’ll find 4 new people who you may not have seen. Maybe they’re new, or perhaps just outside your filters.

We’ll find four new people every 24 hours for you, and you’ll never see the same people in there twice.

We’re going to be improving our algorithm as time goes on and as we learn what works and what doesn’t. Our goal is for all four of the people we have in your daily matches be because you’ll click the heart under. We’ve got all kinds of fancy monitoring ready to go.
