Dating app


In 2020, our client set out to create a unique dating app that stands out from the rest. This app focuses on real-life activities, so users can quickly move from online to in-person dating. It ensures that everyone is active and engaged. With customer's detailed questionnaire, users get to meet people who match their preferences perfectly. The app is all about finding that one perfect match and connecting with them.


The dating app industry is saturated, with users frequently using multiple apps and often not taking the process seriously. Users are becoming frustrated with the lack of meaningful connections. The client recognized the opportunity to differentiate itself by offering a more authentic and serious dating experience. The main aim is to stand out by offering a unique approach to dating apps. This approach focuses on offline activities and seeks to bridge the gap between online and offline dating. To bring this vision to life, our client required a technical implementation partner.


Our client approached Leobit to resolve critical challenges with an unstable app developed by previous vendors. The existing architecture and code needed major restructuring and updates. Various inconsistencies and bugs greatly complicated the release of updates, expansion of functionality and required a lot of time and money for further scaling and maintenance. It also had a poor user experience, which was significantly decreasing the number of users.

In the pursuit of overcoming these challenges, our client specifically searched for a partner with profound expertise and extensive experience in the area of Flutter development, leading to our profound collaboration.

Project in-detail - Scalable

in detail

Leobit developers utilized the Flutter framework, powered by the Dart programming language, both backed by Google. This choice enables the creation of cost-effective cross-platform applications, streamlining maintenance and reducing development expenses by eliminating the need for separate iOS and Android development teams.

In collaboration with the client, our team facilitated the definition of specific business requirements and assisted in the planning process. As a result, a new app version was released every 2-3 weeks, ensuring consistent progress.

Project in-detail - Scalable

We integrated Flutter's in_app_purchase plugin for the subscription plans and in-app purchases feature. We configured billing information on prominent app stores like the App Store and Play Market. We engineered the necessary logic for unlocking premium features based on the user's subscription status.

The implementation of Secure User Verification involved integrating the Veriff SDK through the veriff_flutter plugin, enabling a streamlined user verification process. Users were guided through the verification flow. Also we established a robust access mechanism to grant verified users exclusive access to certain in-app features, ensuring security and a tailored user experience.

To implement the device location retrieval feature we integrated the geolocator and geocoding plugins, which provided the necessary access to location data. Leveraging the location data, we provided location-based features, such as displaying nearby users and activities on a map. This comprehensive approach enhanced the user experience, making the application more interactive. To maintain privacy and adhere to permission requirements, we employed the permission_handler plugin.

We implemented the restaurant booking feature through the integration of the Formitable API. This integration allowed users to efficiently browse through a curated selection of restaurants and reserve tables at their preferred dining venues. The system managed the entire reservation process, including confirmation notifications and updates, ensuring that users received timely information about their bookings and any modifications made.

The notification system was implemented by integrating Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) through the utilization of the firebase_messaging Flutter plugin. This integration enabled the delivery of push notifications to users for a wide range of app events, including notifications for new matches, incoming messages, scheduled dates, and updates regarding activities. Routing inside the app was emphasized to handle user interactions with push notifications. This allowed users to seamlessly navigate to the relevant sections of the app by tapping on notifications, ensuring that they could effortlessly access and respond to the content or events associated with each notification.

We integrated app with multiple third-party SDKs, specifically AppsFlyer, Firebase Analytics, and Facebook App Events. This was accomplished by utilizing their respective Flutter plugins, ensuring that data could be collected and shared with these analytics platforms. Additionally, a comprehensive user experience analysis was achieved by integrating UXCam through the flutter_uxcam plugin. These integrations allowed for the tracking various user data, ultimately facilitating informed decision-making and optimization of the application's performance.


Swiping cards functionality

The swiping cards functionality was technically executed by integrating a card-swiping mechanism utilizing Flutter's sophisticated gesture detection and animation functionalities.

We designed custom widgets to precisely render user cards and manage user interactions, culminating in a seamless user experience that significantly optimized user engagement.


Google Maps integration

We harnessed the power of the google_maps_flutter plugin to seamlessly integrate Google Maps into the app. This integration encompassed several critical features, including the real-time display of the user's location on the map.

Moreover, the system facilitated the mapping of activity venues. Users can pinpoint these locations on the map, making it easier to plan and navigate to their destinations. Whether it's finding a nearby restaurant, a park, or a specific event venue, our integration streamlines the process of discovering and accessing a wide range of interesting places.


Google Calendar Integration

Our Google Calendar Integration is a game-changer for the dating app. With this feature, users can effortlessly sync their Google Calendar, making it easier to schedule dates and check their availability. This integration was implemented through the utilization of the Google Calendar API.

Additionally, the system was designed to enable users to send date proposals to their matches, leveraging the data from their Google Calendar to propose available dates. Once a proposal was sent, the system would await confirmation from the recipient before enabling further communication between the matched individuals.
