There’s not much option when it comes to matchmaking services oriented to specific cultures and groups. Moreover, when it comes to great UX and easy to use application it’s rare even worldwide. The complicate things even further, some groups require a thorough validation of the information in order not to violate the user privacy but respect it instead.


The Team were able to address privacy task through series of validation steps required operator to perform in subsequent series creating sort of incremental on-boarding flow. By providing simple UX for achieving task in the shortest path possible, we addressed a problem with demanding audience. And the last piece of solution was an attention to multiple preferences allowed users to configure their profile and thus increase chance of successful match using feature-rich chat and matchmaking functionality.


Two-stages onboarding process including the contact information and numerous facts about the Users to find the ideal match.

Validation of the User email and phone number forthe security of the Users.

Validation of uploaded photos and texts by Admins and Operatorsto be within the limits of decency and moderation.

Premium Promotion under special conditions.

Homescreen displaying the summary of User profiles, set up according to the User preferences.

Detailed profile views on click.

Privacy restrictions to keep User’s profile away from the undesired spectators.

Push notifications for the Users to know about updates.

Chat to know more about the people who like each other.

Activities — Likes, Quick messages, Bookmarks and Notes, Requests of full profile views, Sharing profile, Blocking Users. Simple Search for Basic subscription and Advanced Search for Premium Users.

Subscriptions — simple system of only one upgraded plan, which is Premium; one short step to the full functionality using. User Menu to manage the profile and subscription.


As a result,
StartupCraft team has created an App innovative in its domain, both from the user and the business perspective. The monetization model is clear as the users always know what they receive purchasing a subscription.

My project had diverse features and advanced business logic, I had been looking for, and interviewing many of the well reputed development agencies before settling with StartupCraft team.
