Isaiah Turner and co-founder Ben Pasternak came up with the Monkey App. They met online, as many teens do today. In 2015, Apple hosted its first face-to-face meeting at WWDC, a developer conference for app developers. In just a few days, Pasternak called Turner with the idea for Monkey, a community for teens to connect with others who share their interests.


Turner stated that the company’s employees, who are on average 18 years old, built artificial intelligence to identify inappropriate content. Furthermore, users can report content that they find inappropriate. Once the report is made, the AI analyses the chat. If explicit content is found, the user is automatically banned.

It is particularly popular with teenagers and young adults. According to App Annie, Monkey Cool was the top download among 13-to-24-year-olds in April and has remained in the top ten since then. It is currently the ninth most popular app among that age group. According to analytics firm Sensor Tower, the average user is 23 years old, with roughly equal numbers of females and males, 48 to 52%. Monkey Cool estimates that the average user is just 18 years old.


According to mobile analytics company App Annie, the Monkey App has been downloaded almost three million times since November 2016, with an average monthly active user base of 300,000. The company estimates that, in reality, there are millions of users.

Monkey Cool users can easily chat with each other. Make sure you read the rules and conditions carefully before using the site. You can also download the app to your mobile device. The app allows users to search anonymously for information about women and men, which can assist them in building relationships. Online reviews can be helpful in this regard.
