Velvet App matches you with other users nearby and kick-starts exciting conversations. Users swipe through topic-decks to see which activities they and their matches are both interested in!
Velvet was built using Functional Reactive Programming via RxSwift and RxCocoa and MVVM architecture. It interfaces with a Rails backend RESTful API to setup matches, start topic-decks, and store preferences. The app also utilizes WebSockets for chat messaging between matches. Velvet is free but also features a in-app subscription service that offers users a premium experience.
