This client grew up in a military family as a “military brat”. Constantly moving, she had to grow new roots many times. Her idea is to provide an easy platform to meet new friends *in real life* as opposed to virtually. The goal was to provide a near term event management system combined with chat to create a social network for real connections.
We developed a mobile app for iOS that creates a social network for real life connections. The app allows users to create events, public and private. Events are shown on a searchable map along with other events. Events can have a limited guest list where each guest can accept or decline. The host can also choose and select guests since slots are limited. Communication is done with a custom real-time chat system. Users can create multiple friends lists and create group chats.
What We Did
Google Maps integration
Events are shown real-time on Google maps for easy searching. Users can find events in their area to quickly make new friends.
Custom built real time chat provides an easy way to communicate among friends. Messages are stored for a limited time to protect privacy. Group chat and friends lists are included as well.
The app has many social network features important to building connections. Friends lists, blocking unwanted invites, event creation and management, chatting are all included.
