SkaDate Mobile Apps

SkaDate mobile apps for iOS and Android smartphones are the best platforms for your dating business to rely on. With years and thousands of customers under our belt, the hard-tested and polished dating apps from SkaDate are the only logical choice.

SkaDate smartphone applications fully utilize Progressive Web App (PWA) technology. Just like Tinder, Uber, Twitter, Forbes, AliExpress, and many others, we already made this step into the future. You no longer have to rely on quirks of app stores, directly giving your users the necessary mobile experience. Learn more about SkaDate PWA.

If you offer a mobile app experience without push notifications you are doing it wrong. What better way to make users respond than to notify them in real time of a new message or a new match? Push notifications are the lifeblood of mobile apps.

  • SkaDate mobile apps were developed for work exclusively with smartphones. Operation on tablets is not guaranteed.
  • SkaDate mobile apps were tested to work with the unmodified latest versions of SkaDate dating software;
  • If your SkaDate site has been modified (custom modification involving database changes), some of the app features may function incorrectly or may not be available. Contact SkaDate support to request the necessary changes and integration at additional fees;
  • SkaDate mobile apps require continuous, strong internet connection to interact with the server that hosts your copy of SkaDate in order to retrieve and display the details required;
  • Modifications to rebrand or further customize SkaDate mobile apps can be performed by SkaDate for an additional charge. Please see our app submission service;
  • Distributing rebranded or further customized applications through app stores require opening accounts and re-submitting apps to corresponding vendors (Apple Store, Android’s Google Play) at possible additional charges;
  • Note that Apple and Google have strict and complicated regulations concerning applications submitted to their Stores. During the review process, Apple Store and Google Play editors can reject applications linked to sites with explicit adult content or IP infringement.
  • In addition, Apple and Google are constantly tightening their regulations concerning the availability of ‘non-unique’ apps in their stores. Apps deemed too similar in nature to the apps already in the store have a high risk of being rejected.

SkaDate Mobile Apps FAQ

Do you help to submit my apps to the App Stores?

Yes! We'll need you to sign up for developer accounts at Apple App Store and Google Play and we'll do all the work for you. Learn more here.

Do you guarantee my apps will be accepted by the App Stores?

Unfortunately, not a single vendor can guarantee you that. This is due to the fact that Apple and Google are constantly tightening their regulations towards the original content in their stores. If Apple or Google decide that your app is not unique or original enough, or they have too many similar themed apps in their stores, they will reject your app.

What happens if my app is rejected by either or both of the App Stores?

Fortunately for you, our apps fully utilize the Progressive Web App technology. This means you do not have to rely on app stores at all, instead directly delivering the mobile experience to your visitors. If you still want to continue with distributing your apps through the app stores, we will do our best to appeal the decision until your apps are accepted, or we receive a definite unappealable rejection. The only way further will be to introduce significant changes to the app code and design at additional costs.

Which devices can be used with SkaDate Mobile Apps?

SkaDate Mobile Apps were developed exclusively for use with iOS and Android smartphones. Operation on other devices, including tablets is not guaranteed.
