Unique as an app created solely by and for queer women, the uptake of "Her" across the UK and the US has been rapid since launches in March and June respectively.Formerly called "Dattch", the app has raised over million, including backing from the founders of Reddit and Bebo."I was using some awful lesbian dating sites," she told Buzz Feed News."I was in a pub with a friend, she had broken up with her girlfriend and I was telling her what I was using – I was embarrassed that that was the best thing I could give to her."Irritated by sites and apps that "took a site for guys, turned it pink, and called it 'Lez on Lez'," Exton decided to do something – and the "Her" app was born.
It aims to be a community with "more social, less dating", Exton said.
