Bangalore, August 9, 2014: U2opia Mobile has launched WOO, a smartphone app available on Android and iOS which gives users, a platform to connect with like-minded, interesting, urban singles from the same city -- educated, young, single professionals between the ages of 25-35.
Says Sumesh Menon, CEO and Co-founder of U2opia Mobile: ‘Woo is about real relationships – relationships with people you could genuinely connect with, people with whom you have friends in common and relationships that actually have a chance of translating into reality’.
Woo fills the space between frivolous dating apps and old-fashioned matrimonial websites. Key features:
Curated Community - Woo actively screens each application before letting users onto the app. Woo allows only single people to sign up, keeping out non-serious thrill-seekers. Moreover, with a sophisticated filtering algorithm, Woo weeds out fake profiles, ensuring ahigh-quality, curated community of sophisticated, mature individuals seeking something substantial and meaningful.
Circle of Trust – The number one way people meet today, despite other available options, is still via friends. Woo mimics that very thing on the app, where it allows you to see if you have mutual friends with someone you like on Woo. If you do, you can actually ask the mutual friend to make introductions and help get the conversation started. Having someone familiar in common also boosts the trust and confidence users feel in initiating conversation.
Hyper-local - Woo believes that real connections take place in the real world and should not be hindered by long distances. Hence, Woo only connects people within the same city. That way, if 2 users form a match and like each other, they can decide to meet up in the real world at any time.
U2opia Mobile is a mobile technology company that creates made-for-the-world products that connect people with global information resources and with each other, regardless of the device they use or the country they live in. The company has operations spread over 40 countries, catering to 20 million users and counting, globally, and runs its global operations from its offices in India, Singapore, Dubai and the US.
