SkaDate mobile apps for iOS and Android are the best platforms for your dating business to rely on. With years and thousands customers under our belt, the hard-tested and polished dating apps from SkaDate are the only logical choice.
Key Feature: SpeedMatch
Get on the fun side of mobile dating with an integrated Tinder-like feature – SkaDate SpeedMatch. Receive random photos of singles in your proximity, and if the other party is interested, strike an instant connection – chat online and perhaps get a date in real life too.
SpeedMatch is a fun and stylish Tinder / Badoo / HotOrNot / Speed Dating hybrid.
All SkaDate Mobile App Features
The brand new and ultra slick SkaDate apps were developed specifically for Apple and Android devices, and have all essential features of its desktop counterpart to power up your business:
User Photo Upload
Upload photos, shoot with your camera, organize into albums — SkaDate apps have it all covered for your users.
You may also limit the number of photos and albums users may have.
Apart from SpeedMatch, you can also enable regular user search like they do it on traditional dating sites, by entering user criteria. Many people still prefer this to the swipe game — all depends on your audience.
Real-time messaging for users who happened to match with SpeedMatch or according to your membership level structure. Supported by push notifications!
Location, Location, Location!
Just what you would expect phone location data to be used for — users can be matched or searched by their current or custom location.
Don’t put the burden of registration forms on your users! Let them sign up with their Facebook accounts in one click! Instant signup + verification in one shot, win-win for both you and the user!
New User Signup
If you don’t plan to use Facebook Connect, or want to give users choice, or need to ask some special info, they can also sign up with a regular registration form. Profile questions that will show up on the form are completely configurable.
Monetization: In-app Purchases
Accept in-app payments from users with their AppleID or Google Play accounts, just like the best apps do it! Seamless, native monetization method makes sure you receive all revenue that is to be made in even most casual use cases.
Monetization: Membership Levels and Credits
Want to limit some features to paid membership levels only? Offer monthly or yearly subscriptions? Or you would rather charge one-time for activating features? Want to sell messages or winks for credits? Offer discount on bigger credit packs?
SkaDate has it all covered.
Monetization: User Hotlist
Offer your users a way to stand out in the community for a day: to get featured in the Hotlist for a small fixed fee. A smart way to monetize a natural human need in 15 minutes of fame.
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, a new match, etc? Push notifications are the lifeblood of mobile apps.
Let your users save people they like for later interactions. Saves conversations that might never happen otherwise.
User matching algorithm based on your preferences. Compatibility score shown on profiles, sort search results by the score!
Who Viewed Me
Spark users’ interest by showing them who’s been visiting their profiles. It’s OK to look. That’s how conversations are started.
For regular (non-Facebook) registrations it still makes sense to have users verify their emails to avoid spammers, just like on the website.
If spammers still do find their way into your community, have users report their profiles, messages, content, anything! You can have your good members help you spot bad ones. Remove all traces (messages, profiles, photos, posts) of their activity with one click! It’s easier for you to fight them than for them to fight you!

SkaDate Mobile Apps FAQ
Do you help to submit my apps to the App Stores?
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.
