Enrouto – a dating application for mobile devices
A dating application is never a simple project. It demands developers to follow the industry high standards and implement commonly known features while providing new and interesting solutions in terms of both usability and technology.
What Is Enrouto?
Enrouto is a very interesting dating application that focuses on people who enjoy travelling and searching for others in different parts of the world. Unlike many other dating applications this one uses several distinct cues to find people who might share similar destinations and routes, not just interests.
Your ordinary journey can become a new hot topic for a conversation and turn into a daring adventure with a romantic line!
- Creating and editing profile.
- Searching for matches with different criteria.
- Searching for matches based on travel destinations of other users.
- Chatting and messaging.
How Does It Work?
At first, the user creates his own profile with a simple login function. We also allowed users to log in with their Google+ or Facebook accounts. Both sign up and log in functions are convenient and easy-to-use; we decided to keep it like other social applications to ease the introduction for our users.
Users can add personal information to their profiles and most importantly tell other users where they are going to travel soon. This information is important for the system as it matches people who are about to go to the same place in the nearest future, a place like Dubai, for example!
The application will search matches that fit your searching criteria and destination point. After that our users will be able to contact people who they are interested in VIA chat.
What Did We Do?
Dating applications need to be stable and scalable. Many interesting dating services failed to deliver good results due to poor technology to back them up. To ensure stable communications between different components of Enrouto, we worked in different areas:
- Back-end optimization;
- RESTful architecting of the system;
- Mobile dating application development;
- Audit UI and perform UX-studies;
- Creating interesting design and solutions
Enrouto turned out to be a very interesting project that allowed us to perform up to our standards and make a standalone application with a diversified set of features and room for scalability!
