With over 3 million downloads of Couple, we think we know a thing or two about what makes people compatible. This Valentine’s Day, we’re releasing a Beta version of our new Matchmaking app, Quiver. What’s it all about? Well, rather than relying on a cold, mechanical matching algorithm, Quiver lets real people do the matching. Our philosophy, is that you are much better than a computer at seeing who would be compatible with your friends. We also think it’s a hundred times more interesting to be matched by a person, than a computer, so why not let people play Cupid? Quiver finds pairs of people in the app who we think are compatible. We show them to a handful of matchmakers in the game to see if they agree. If enough of them do, the two people get the chance to connect! This could be a friend, and a friend of a friend, or two people in the game who should definitely meet! It’s a fun new way to meet people, and an exciting way to help your friends meet new people!
At it’s core, Quiver is a game. Every player can be either be a Matchmaker and play Cupid, or register as a Single, to be put in the game. Matchmakers get a limited number of “arrows” that they can use to make a match in the system. If the two people they match end up liking each other, the Matchmakers level up, gain influence in the game, and get more arrows! It takes at least 2 out of 3 matchmakers agreeing on a match for it to be shown to the single users in the game. If only 1 out of 3 matchmakers agree, the matchmaker on the out loses an arrow, and the pair does not get the chance to connect. What if you run out of arrows? Don’t worry! We’ll fill up everyones Quiver with arrows once a day.
