We are seeking an experienced mobile app developer, or mobile app development firm to assist us with our next project. We will not disclose all of the details of the project here as some of the details and requirements are confidential.
Here are some of the basic requirements that we can share:
1. The app will be a standard dating app with the ability to sign up/in, add a profile, and message other users. To leverage economies of scale, we are willing to start with a dating app script provided it allows for all the functionality we are seeking.
2. Users will have the ability to add preferences to their profile. Other users or matches will be "recommended" based upon the preferences that the user enters (ie, match on interest)
High Level Overview:
As an example, let's say that users get to add preferences for their favorite foods. Let's say that I enter "Italian" and "Japanese" as my favorite foods. The app would then display other users that enter "Italian" and "Japanese" based upon their preferences.
As per the requirements of this app, the "recommendation engine" would even go as granular as to match users by dishes that they like. So for instance, if I list "spaghetti" in my preferences, it would match me with other uses that like "spaghetti". The more "dishes" that I have in common, the higher the match rating would be. When matching, the users would also see that their match counterpart likes "spaghetti, Japanese, and Italian.
Again, this only represents an example of what we are looking to achieve, but we look forward to sharing details with the right candidates.
