Interview with the developer of a fantastic app by App of The Day, downloadastro.com
> Did you have any prior development or coding experience?
We are a young team. Therefore, we had limited business experience when starting up. Thanks to internships and entrepreneurship gatherings we became more knowledgeable, but we still learn every day.
> What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?
We managed to get an organic user base, which is perfect for market validation. But we do want to offer offline events and real-life experiences. Therefore, after the pandemic situation, we have to develop the app in a way that local partnerships are developed and targeted local user bases are matched.
> Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.
CouchSurfing: We like meeting up and making new friends anywhere we go.
Slack: it is very easy to use for anyone and integrates easily with other services. It makes a good example of a good messaging system.
> How long have you been working on this app?
The idea started in November 2018 to make an app to let people meet easily based on common interests.
> What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?
Although the internet provides many (new) opportunities, it’s difficult to connect truly in real life. We always had in mind to make a platform that acts as a tool to meet up in reality as soon as possible.
> In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.
UNBLND has a very natural approach for matching people. You are dropped in anonymous groups (Sports / Brussels). Your looks and background are not important. Whenever you feel okay, you can “unblind” each other and share private information.
> What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?
- Integrate more local partnerships to get discounts or suggested meeting spots
- Create a map function with live activity groups to make it easier to join interesting gatherings as soon as possible.
> Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?
You can go to unblnd.com/app to install the app. Positive reviews are always welcome and help us to spread the word and get more people to meet up. If you have a business opportunity or for possible partnerships you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are happy to see more and more interview requests are coming in. As freeappsforme.com says that UNBLND is an excellent solution if you want to meet a true soulmate. We couldn’t agree more!
