A highly engaging and fun iPhone app, TrueFlirt combines text messaging with gorgeous 2D animations that respond to user interaction and leverage breakthrough iPhone technologies, like the accelerometer and innovative Multi-Touch user interface, to enable users to flirt with immediacy, fun and style. The app comes preloaded with 10 irresistibly interactive Flirts.
Users can, for example, offer the object of their affection a virtual Love Potion that bubbles and pours when they tap or shake the device, or they can even "set the mood" with an over-the-top-kitschy bachelor pad Flirt, where users can tap objects in the scene to uncover sexy essentials like a hidden waterbed and disco ball. New Flirts and Flirt Collections are added regularly and automatically to keep the interaction fresh and exciting, with some featuring popular musicians, movie characters and pop culture icons.
"Flirting and Valentine's Day go hand-in-hand," said Rob Frasca, CEO of Viximo. "Move over cards and candy. We're excited to bring a whole new way to flirt with style to iPhone users."
