there are over 25,000 users with 2,000 new signups every day.
Sixty-one percent of users are male, 39 percent are women, and while the app is targeted toward women, Li points to this as proof that there are men who like "all different body types." While impressive, considering the app launched in October 2015, the user base still isn't huge.
