Utide is a new social platform that let users chat without knowing who the other person is.
Using their concept of 30-second chats, users can call a stranger and after 30 seconds if they would like to make friends, they are able to reveal their identity and connect.
Based out of Nigeria, Nosakhare Osamudiamen and his designer William Nwogbo are looking to build the next short-message social app with a difference.
Utide is fresh on the market, after launching their app on December 31st 2014, and is starting to gain a user based interested in the ability to find new friends.
I got the chance to catch up with Nosakhare and talk to him about his app and Sinch.
“We originally build the app and then added Sinch” Nosakhare told me. “We wanted to build a MVP and test the concept as quickly as possible”, and focus is on giving a new face to a social networking app. His team picked Sinch to handle the app to phone calling part of the app.
Every 30 seconds, the app switches between active users, letting callers find a new match and take it further if they are interested. They got started with Sinch using the getting started tutorial and documentation, and only needed to speak with our support team once.
“If I was to sum up Sinch in one sentence, I would say supportive and…[has] the ability to carry developers along!”
In the next 6/12 months, Utide plan to add another chatting function as well as adding new features for people looking for love.
The app is live now on the Google Play store and it coming soon to iPhone.
