Challenges
Challenges

  • Learning curve on Objective-C

  • Getting familiar with iPhone development tools such as Xcode.



Anonymous flirting
Anonymous Flirting

  • Allow users to click a flirt button, saving the current location to the database with a timestamp

  • Users can browse from their location history to see if someone flirted/had a crush with them (by reading a description of the person described by the user that started the flirt)

  • If users are around each other frequently, the possible matches can be narrowed down

    • Identity hidden until the initiating user allows identity to be known


Future work
Future Work

  • Provide a built in instant messaging system with the client application.

  • Possibly look into providing real time geo-location processing.

    • Will entail implementing a map-matching scheme for providing accurate location processing.

  • Proximity dating using Bluetooth technology

    • Instantly flirt with and find a date within a short range.


Conclusion
Conclusion

  • Implementation of a functioning mobile date application specialized for UCF students.

  • More users can provide ratings with greater validity and more options for dates.

  • Future work can make this a marketable product.
