The creator of iPhone application Grindr says there could be a version for lesbians by the end of the year.

Grindr is like a portable version of a dating website, which uses GPS to tell gay men how close they are to other users.

AsGayNZ.com reported in March, the application has become incredibly popular, with men often seen browsing profiles and chatting on Grindr in bars and clubs.

It has more than 900,000 users around the world and is growing at 2,500 new users a day.

Creator Joel Simkhai has told theSydney Morning Herald a version of Grindr for straight people and lesbians will be launched, most likely by the end of the year.

"We get a lot of feedback from straight men and women and lesbian women who are jealous and eager to experience the same kind of thing, so we're working hard to make sure that we have a technology here that makes sense to women," he said.
