Techugo Pvt. Ltd.
Fostering new bonds via technology is becoming a global phenomenon. That is why we are witnessing a worldwide rise in the development of social networking and dating apps. From Baby Boomers to Gen Z, almost all the generations crave meaningful relationships. Thus many of them turn to digital platforms that would allow them to meet new people, make new friends, and even hang out with others in real life.
But a lot of time, social networking apps, with their overwhelming & colorful stimuli, pull back the user from nourishing valuable bonds.
A Brief Introduction To Blixr!
In a densely populated digital world where our attention quickly deviates, Blixr comes with a positive twist. The platform is a next-generation voice-based social discovery app that brings back a sense of belongingness by connecting people looking for love or friendship.
Blixr is a seamless combination of voice-based social discovery and events app that gives a refreshing touch to the monotonous market. Its voice plus ethical algorithm elevates the users’ online experience, and the integrated event feature allows them to hang out in real life with ease.
- Connects new people in the vicinity & helps them to cherish quality moments.
- Simplifies the process of making new friends with common interests.
- Delivers a secure platform & enables complete transparency for better results.
Our clients wanted to create a trusted social space to renew real-world connections. Their idea was to create a social application beyond the general concept that is being widely used. They wanted to create an app that revolves around the idea, “How people want to meet and what people want to do.”
So we created a platform for them where people with common choices & interests can meet digitally via video or voice. Or go to a local event and share exclusive experiences.
Now let’s take a look at a few of the technical aspects of the app’s development.
