RoamAntics approached us with an exciting new concept in speed dating. With the growing rise in internet dating sites, the speed dating arena has evolved to become far more than just singles nights in bars. The Roam Antics App allows registered guys and gals to attend and participate in “walkabout” speed dating events, just by using their phones. From a development point of view, we created a web app designed specifically for anyone attending the events. We encouraged the client to use a web app and not a mobile app to reduce costs and make it easier to target a wider audience.
Using advanced technologies we were able to develop easy to use, real time communication via web sockets, allowing participants to speak directly to other interested parties via “chats”. We also developed a dating “radar” to enable to the users' phones to scan and find each other within the event. We even included the ability to let users continue to communicate via the app, even after leaving the event. The client was very pleased with the finished app, and we are waiting for our invite to the first Roam Antics wedding!
