Quiver Redesigned: Matchmaking Made Simpler

A new version of Quiver is ready for download! Over the past month, we’ve seen over 100,000 votes on matches by Matchmakers around the world. In the latest version, we’ve made some major upgrades to the app design, and greatly improved performance in key components of the app.

On the design side, the app has received a major overhaul. We’ve stripped out the buttons on the matchmaking screen and focused on creating an intuitive, minimalist user experience. We’ve greatly improved chat performance, and integrated additional functionality, such as photo sending. Let’s take a second to go through some of the new screens…

When you register for Quiver, you’ll be prompted to “hide” or “show” your profile in the app. If you solely want to matchmake for friends, or people around the world, select “hide profile” and you’ll be able to play the game without getting matched yourself. If you want to get matched with other users in the app, make sure to show your profile!

Once you’re in the game, swipe two cards together to match them, or swipe them apart to pass. You’ll see what other people voted on that match. Remember, for a match to go through, the majority of people need to like the match.

Any time you receive a match, you can now see who matched you and your match percentage based on votes in the system. Inside the chat screen, you can always access a person’s profile by tapping their avatar in the top right.

We have more changes coming in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for updates! The next update will build on top of Quiver 1.0, and increase functionality for Single users, and their friends. You can download Quiver on the Apple App Store. Give it a try, and let us know what you think!

Quiver: The Matchmaking Game

Blog FIntroducing Quiver

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!

Game Rules

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.
