About

Kink is a dating app that skips the date, it uses kink generated tags to match you with a candidate who you share a common kink with. Kink never discloses the users personal list of kinks and only shares the kinks you have in common with your match, privacy and safety are our top priority's. Using the classic swipe left or right dating app layout, Kink will make finding a match with your kink in common a breeze. After a user has finished registering and setting up their profile, they will be given a list of kink generated tags in which they choose whatever best suits them. From there the app locates a list of candidates who match their tags. Once their List is generated, they may go through it swiping left or right on whoever they see fit. When two users have liked each other it creates a match, from here you are able to message your match as much as you'd like. Free users are given a 150 Likes cap every 12 hours. If a user accidentally swipes left on a potential candidate there is a option to go back and swipe right, this is called a Reverse, free users are given a 5 Reverse cap every 12 Hours. 

Now come the premium features, there are two highlights of the many premium features and those would be the Wink and the Turbo. The wink is a pay per usage function that allows you to notify matches directly that you are seriously interested in. Premium users are given a 1 wink a week allowance or winks can be bought on demand through the app. The turbo is a pay per usage function that allows a user to be one of the top profiles in their area for 2 hours. Increasing your chances for a match, you can make 10 times more likes using Turbo. Premium users are given a 1 Turbo a month allowance or Turbos can be bought on demand through the app. Finally, we've saved the best for last, our service Kink Premium is a monthly service that allows you to access the following Premium Features: Unlimited Likes, Unlimited Backtracks, No Ads, 1 Wink a week allowance, 1 Turbo a month Allowance, etc. All of this is launching for $5.99 a month in February 2019, on demand services prices are TBD. 

We are currently in the pre development stage, as we are still working vigorously on the  final the layout design. You can currently view the mock up drafts on our campaigns first update, leave some feedback for the mock ups, we welcome all thoughts and opinions. Now for our timeline it starts with finalizing the layout design, next after the campaign has ended we will use the funds collected from the kickstarter campaign to pay for development of the application itself. During development we will take the correct precautionary measures to ensure the application will make it to the correct markets by registering for a developer account on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Upon development completion and registration approval we plan to launch the Kink Application Beta on both Iphone and Android platforms. As we release the Beta we plan to launch a vigorous advertising campaign via a 3rd party advertising company. As the Beta feedback comes in we plan to fix all identified bugs and issues while building a fully functioning website before launching the final public version.

Please don't hesitate to leave a comment on the page as we are always looking for suggestions to make the app better for you as we enter development. Thank you everyone so much for all your support and generosity, we greatly appreciate all that you do!

Risks and challenges

To create a successful application you need the right team in place to program it, design it, move it, and keep it up to date as our world continues to move forward. We are aware that this is the first app we want to create but have no fear as our team has experience in the tech/software industry.

Although with any venture risks are not impossible to ignore and to be realistic the main risks we have identified are:
1. Capital
2. Marketing
3. Timing

Funding seems to be one of our largest problems now which is why we had decided to come to the community to see if they like our idea and are willing to back it. As for marketing, we will be using a 3rd party advertising company to take care of our advertising and outreach needs. The last problem is timing, although the quicker funded the project becomes and using our best organizational skills we believe we will over come our project time frame and complete the project ahead of schedule.
