The client had a vision for a new social mobile app that would connect new friends based on their common values. With the world facing a global pandemic and lockdowns enforced around the globe, the need to solve loneliness had never been more pressing.
The challenge was to create a unique solution that would connect people based on their core values, and to do so quickly. Nordstone’s Design Team used the latest design-thinking techniques to craft the UI/UX mobile app designs from scratch. Using our 7-step process for building new products, which includes visioning, scoping, designing, developing, testing, launching, and iterating. We were able to develop a scalable full stack iOS & Android mobile app using machine learning to interpret the user’s core values and connect new friends based on these values. This required integrating over 20 third-party APIs and building 5 proprietary APIs from scratch. All of this was done in under 10 weeks.
The outcome of this project was a resounding success. The app passed the elusive product market fit just 6 months after launch and has scaled worldwide to 70+ countries. The app received a 4.7* rating in the Google Play Store. Nordstone stayed on with the client after launch with ongoing feature development and iterations.
This case study showcases Nordstone’s ability to take a client’s vision and turn it into a successful product that solves a problem, in this case loneliness, by connecting people based on their common values. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver projects quickly and efficiently, while maintaining the highest standards of quality. Contact us today to see how we can help bring your vision to life.
