About the project

The client
Out Co is an LGBTQ+ social app. It provides the LGBTQ+ community a safe space to find friends, join local or virtual events, and find inclusive businesses.
Project background
The client came to us with a half-developed app and an unpleasant experience of working with another app development company. After around half a year of their work, the app has been just 20% ready. Moreover, the client was asked for a budget and timeline increase, which was unacceptable and led to the partnership termination and a search for a new contractor.

The goals

Out Co strives to create a friendship-focused app where LGBTQ+ individuals can find genuine connections and stick together.

  • Fill in the gap in the market by creating an app giving the queer community a safe space to make friends, the ability to see the “friendly” locations across the country or even the world, join local or virtual events;
  • Get revenue from the app through a subscription model, and continue growing the project.

SolveIt’s mission

Taking into account the project’s background, our mission was to handle the project transfer from another development provider, review the developed parts, and prepare detailed plans and estimations to finish the project and release the app.

  • Review the developed app parts (UX/UI + code review + QA) and provide a more specific plan and estimation of the development stage;
  • Complete the mobile app design and create the design for the admin panel;
  • Complete Flutter mobile app development;
  • Develop admin panel;
  • Strictly stick to the deadlines and the agreed budget.
“The key challenge of this project was to seamlessly take the project from another provider at the development stage while reducing the client’s stress, delivering the app within the budget and deadlines.”

Out - a social network app

The solution

7 months after the project's start, we released the Out app prior to the agreed deadlines.
We developed the app on Flutter and it works flawlessly both on iOS and Android devices. App admins have access to the web admin panel to manage users.

No budget increase!
No timeline extension!

The main feature

Friend-finder feature is the core feature of the app. It pairs users based on their shared interests. Behind the scenes, we developed a special algorithm for spotting coincidences of interests, profile descriptions, and locations.
It enables more precise user matches and leads to meaningful connections and higher app engagement.
  • Users can find friends based on their interests or locations, match, chat, and find events to visit. As well, users can review events, places, and experiences.
  • Business users organize events that vary from book clubs and retreats to bar gatherings.
  • Businesses offer LGBTQ+ focused services or products. They can also organize events and promote them in the app.
  • Businesses and their events realize the main app goal: they create a safe and friendly environment for LGBTQ+ individuals.
