How Net Solutions helped a client build
An Innovative Dating Mobile App
Social Platform Business
Quickbox Chat SDK
It is a premier social app that allows users to chat with one another, anywhere and anytime. With this app, users can send instant messages and pictures to other users without having to share their phone numbers. This social app facilitates users to get acquainted in real-time, and within 100 meters away from one another. Here, they can also appreciate one another's style statements. In addition, they can increase their follower count by connecting their existing social media accounts to the app.
They wanted a social app to be built where users would not have to share their phone numbers to communicate with one another, and still be able to send instant messages and pictures with ease.
Also, they should be able to connect in real-time, and within the periphery of 100 meters. This would ensure the authenticity of users rather than having users with dubious personalities.
The client expected flawless privacy and security features in their app. With the objective being able to create a social networking app, our team was well aware of the possible vulnerabilities associated with such apps.
The client wanted the Bluetooth on the device to be turned on at all times for users to connect with one another at ease. This seemed to be a challenge; so, our team suggested having a GPS-enabled feature, which would indicate the exact location of the user, and tag them too. This also became a key feature of the app–to connect people within the periphery of 100 meters. Besides, users could also opt for making their location invisible. This way, their distance and location are kept confidential, though their profile would still appear on other users' search.
Another challenge was that of making new connections and finding like-minded individuals. Here, we proposed having an engaging interface on the app, with several layered filters for a more positive outcome.
Our Chat Integration SDK at the free level brought about delays in communication. We suggested upgrading it to the pro plan so that it would function smoothly.
GPS tracking will fetch the user's current latitude and longitude, which will then be used to track the user's location on the server. This would be a better option than asking users to turn on the Bluetooth on their devices, as this would result in slow data speed, poor data security, and shortened battery life.
To ensure that users are communicating with like-minded individuals, profiles will be filtered, based on user preferences. Filtered and selected profiles will be sent to users looking for friends nearby.
In a chat system, there may be cases where users receive abusive messages, which is uncalled for. Given that, our mobile app experts customized this social app in such a way that if the prohibited words are used in the messages more than twice, the app automatically sends a warning message and block the user temporarily. Further, if the prohibited words reach the count of 5, the user would be blocked permanently, and they would have to re-install the application.
