New app gets you to swipe right to find conception partner

Thinkstock

MANY have taken to swiping right on dating apps such as Tinder to find a match, but would you use an app to find someone to have a baby with?

New app Just a Baby, available on Google Play and iTunes, allows users to do just that.

"Just a Baby is a new mobile app connecting you with people who just want a baby,” the app's website states.

"It puts power in your hands to meet biological conception partners...

"Just download the Just a Baby app, start swiping and start a family - your way. Be part of the change.”

The app also provides a FAQ section to help prospective parents navigate the different services available to them - including medical, counselling and legal.

After downloading the app, users set up a profile and can change their settings to set how far away they would like potential partners to be, with the option to stay local, or go global.

When searching for partners, you then choose to swipe left to reject the match, or right to pursue a conversation with that person through the app's chat feature.
