Project Date: 2018
Key Takeaways from the survey:
From the data gathering from the survey, it looked like the design of the onboarding process would be crucial.With that in mind, I took into consideration that users would want options as who they would want to be matched up with on the app.
I also took into consideration a “Verification” process. Most users on Tinder here tend to be “fake” so creating a realistic experience would make sense.
After the onboarding experience in which users answer some basic questions and select their preferences, they’re displayed some matches.
If you notice in the top right of the profile pictures, you can see a “verified” sign meaning that the matches you see have either verified through their Facebook profiles or used a specific ID to verify themselves. Users would be able to skip this verification process but the point is to get people to verify themselves.With this screen, we also get a look at the navigation bar.
The menu items include: Matches, Likes, Favorites, Chats, and Profiles. The Match menu item is self-explanatory. The Likes menu is where all the people you’ve liked and have also liked back appear.
With the Favorites, you can actually “favorite” a match in case you want to come back and check out their profile. (I did get feedback that a Favorites section wouldn’t make sense. Tell me what you think)
Matches appear in the Chat menu. You can only chat with someone you have liked and they’ve like you back.In the Profile menu, you can change your profile picture and preferences to get more matches.
This is what a Matched profile screen would look like:
Once you get matched up, you get a prompt asking you to start a chat. But you can opt to do that later. Again, your “Likes” will appear in the “Likes” menu section on the navigation bar on the bottom.
This what the in-app chat screen looks like. Very clean. Simply type and send.
The more matches you get, the more chats appear in your Chats menu. You can always dismiss a chat if you’re done.
