“You know, it’s been a pretty good few days for the (still mostly undercover) dudes behind Bang With Friends, the Facebook-powered app that aims to help you do exactly what its name implies,” Greg Kumparak reports for TechCrunch. “Just days after word trickled out that the service was approaching its millionth user and that the team is purportedly in the middle of raising a million bucks, Bang With Friends has just launched its iPhone and Android apps.”
“If you’ve somehow missed all the Bang With Friends commotion, here’s all you need to know: Bang With Friends tries to help you find folks amongst your Facebook social circle who share a common interest. And by ‘common interest,’ I mean a desire to shag each other,” Kumparak reports. “Once you log in, you privately select which friends (male or female) you’d be down to, well, bang. If the friends you’ve picked happen to pick you, as well, Bang With Friends will automatically connect you two online so that you can in turn connect offline. If there’s no match, however, no one is any the wiser.”
Kumparak reports, “Surprised that Apple, occasionally known to be a bit prudish with their App Store, decided to greenlight this one? I am too, actually. Notice that the app actually has different names on each platform: on Android, it’s ‘BANG WITH FRIENDS (OFFICIAL),’ but on iOS, it goes by the ever-so-slightly more modest ‘BWF (OFFICIAL).'”

MacDailyNews Take: Gotta love Kumparak’s note at the bottom of his article: “Heads up: if you’re searching the Android store manually… make sure you’re downloading the official app. There are about a half-dozen shady clones on the Play store.”
Never mind the shadyware, why there’s even an Android app is beyond us, since Fragmandroid owners obviously love to fsck themselves.
