(NewsGlobal.com)- An innovative new dating app from Israel that is now in beta testing replaces its users’ images with a personalized animal avatar.
The program, which goes by the name Lua – dating with depth, is now in testing and has about 6,000 users. The Apple and Google app stores provide this innovative app for free.
Tinder, OKCupid, Bumble, and Hinge are a few of the most notable applications. Tinder, OkCupid, and Bumble are often offered free, but users may choose subscriptions or full versions for the greatest usage.
This business strategy has been quite successful thus far, and as a result, the market is now estimated at $7.5 billion.
With Tinder, users may swipe right or left on different profiles until a match is discovered. Each profile has a user’s photo, a brief explanation of who they are, and their interests. When a match occurs, the two can start speaking.
OkCupid follows a different methodology. Users fill out detailed profiles that contain images, brief bios, interests, match alternatives, lifestyle preferences, and a variety of open-ended questions. After answering these questions, users can swipe right or left, but they must write an introductory message this time.
Like the other two, Hinge requires users to create a profile with multiple photographs, a brief bio section describing their lifestyle choices, and numerous questions that must be answered. They are scattered around the profile independently, though, and each one may be chosen and liked on its own. A type of introduction letter can follow this.
The method Lua uses is pretty comparable. Additionally, new users create their profiles and pick their photographs based on interests, lifestyle preferences, and other factors. Additionally, they respond to the app’s queries, ranging from “What is the most memorable thing someone did for you?” to “How do you feel about weeping during sex?”
But Lua differs from the other applications in two ways.
The first is that the questions and responses appear, with a notation of who responded, rather than profiles occurring in a queue to be liked or passed over.
The main selling point of the software is the second change: the animal avatars.
An app that advertises itself as offering an animal avatar may initially appear to cater to a specific subculture, but it actually has another use.
On Lua, a new app for mobile dating, users select an animal avatar to represent themselves and describe how they are feeling, with descriptions including “happy,” “bouncy,” “prophetic,” “saucy,” and “fluttering.” Users will be able to choose from a variety of features, including match-making and match suggestions driven by artificial intelligence.
