The latest dating app taking the Newry smartphone by storm is called Nuyk-er. You swipe right if you don’t like the sexually transmitted disease carried by the person you are looking at or maybe you already have that particular disease, and when you see a disease you may not have yet you can nudge the person and send them a meet up message.
Developed by Queens Graduate, Gene O’Rea, 26, the app has already achieved 35,000 downloads after its introduction last week.
“This app is a lot like Tinder, but where Tinder is about spreading infectious diseases anonymously, Nuyk-er spreads diseases knowingly. Nuyk-er users may already have three or five diseases but maybe they want to catch another one, or spread to someone who doesn’t have a disease that you have. Choose your poison: Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, genital herpes, genital warts, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, HIV, crabs, Trichomonas, Chancroid, Mycoplasma genitalium.”
