New functional, such as Profile Rise-Up and Special Message Delivery allows members to always remain in the limelight, receiving hearty responses from interested users.
A distinguishing feature of the app is a unique search algorithm based on numerous criteria. Advanced search includes a multitude of criteria and interests, plus social activity, besides physical parameters, a purpose of meeting and a target location, . Wishdates concept is simple - meet new people as if you were playing a game. Get a higher prominence and find new friends by simply ranking other users’ photos in the “Dates” mini-game. The more photos you rate - the more chances you have for mutual attraction.
Since the very launch, there has been a runaway growth of the member base - Wishdates app was installed by 300 000 people of the Odnoklassniki social network, and yet much more to come.
