The Need

The online dating apps have become an ethereal escape for people looking for meaningful relationships as well as casual hookups. With a plethora of dating apps lurking in the app stores, we cannot deny the apps are also equating frustration with fun. The online dating environment where the whole selling point has come down to “finding a date easily” has unfortunately left touchpoints like trust, genuineness, honesty open-ended. Our client-focused heavily on these issues and approached us at Codiant to curb these sucking concerns with a set of solutions they have brainstormed to flatten the curve.

Client Goals

  • Our client wanted to stop the use of deceptive pics that created a false image of the user for the viewer. So, he asked us to enable only a front-facing camera to create profile pictures.
  • Often people are found dating multiple persons at a time to stop this infidelity, he proposed a solution of ‘only one match at a time’ i.e. if a person finds a match, he/she cannot be matched with another.
  • Users can only send one message to a random stranger and wait for his/her reply to be able to send another- again to stop the rain of messages from unknowns.
  • A user should be able to create not more than one profile.
  • The user should be notified instantly if someone visits his/her profile.
  • Public flag and private flag feature to give the user control of their profile. They can choose to make it public or private.
  • To make the app interesting and to allow people expand their network he planned to make it social-> people can party, hangout, play sports together, go to a concert, etc.

Wireframes

After understanding the features and flow of the app, our team of UX designers created a detailed wireframe of the app for both iOS and Android app platforms. This app prototype helped our UI designers nail down the interface and assisted the developers to think and communicate about the structure of the app.
