Diversity in sexual tastes is starting to spread on dating apps. Far from the classic Tinder proposal, the new rivals are aimed at an audience eager for adventure.
This is precisely the role of Sparks, an app that, curiously it’s not direct to those looking for a partner, but also to those who already have one and want to keep the spark burning in their relationship.
Their main goal is to make being in a relationship that has been going on for years more bearable than getting out of it. Its motto is clear in terms of mission: an app for existing relationships, to make them simple and fun.
The idea came about when founder and CEO Ankit Nayal used dating apps to find a partner. Eventually, the love emerged at the gym instead of through his phone screen.
And that’s when he realized the lack of a platform that would provide added value once the relationship started. That was one step ahead of your competitors.
Sparks is an application that brings together a wide variety of plans to make as a couple. Restaurants, bars, events, holidays, exhibitions, excursions, visits to museums, cooking workshops, painting, photography and other leisure activities.
Many may wonder why they need an app to help them make decisions with their partner. This application, according to its creators, is not trying to replace communication between people, but rather trying to get rid of the commitment that it entails schedule appointments or discover new experiences.
A profile for each member
Each member of the couple has a profile in which data such as birthday and anniversary can be entered. On the home screen, the application works very similar to that of Tinder and others like it. gifts a carousel of activities suggested on various topics, based on the user’s location.
They contain all the relevant information, from the description of the plan to the price, times and address. Therefore, the user scrolls to select which activities are of interest to him and which are not.
Subsequently, the application stores these decisions and locates the “matches” of the other member of the relationship. That is, what activities both of you enjoyed. Finally, all that remains is to book and leave.
In terms of the future, Nayal says she sees Sparks becoming a network of super apps that can help couples in other ways. The app is not yet available locally.
It’s that simple, that practical. The task is to end the monotony, boredom and indecision when it comes to finding a source of entertainment to enjoy as a couple.
“We want to maximize the quality of time you spend with your partner,” the app description reads. “No more complications. No more banal routines”.
On the other hand, the app offers a kind of forum where you can ask anything from the community. Not sure what gift to get your partner for Christmas? Get help from other Sparks users.
The app is free to use and plans to raise additional funds by 2023 to roll out new features and improvements.
