AstroPod – A Dating App that your parents will approve of!
Are you tired of using dating apps that only lead you to impulsive and ephemeral relationships? Well, fret no more! The team at Astro Veda, a Nepali US based tech company, has recently released an app that blends online dating with astrology to verify compatibility with your match using an age-old Vedic system. AstroPod dating app is the first of its kind in Nepal and will very likely save you from the perils of parental rejection. With the slogan ‘Made in Stars’, the app flaunts a unique feature that allows you to check the astrological compatibility with your potential match across seven aspects.
The team at AstroPod organized a press meet at Hotel Radisson on 24th June to announce the launch of the app. The CEO of the company, Paribesh Koirala, had the following to say regarding his latest venture into the online dating segment:
We launched AstroPod dating app to offer a different experience. This app is different from other regular dating apps. This app comprises the facility of choosing a perfect match designed based on Vedic astrological matchmaking. Moreover, one can have the facility of compatibility tests before choosing the perfect partner.
Starting a software company (specializing in app development) was our primary goal as it would allow us to making something meaningful for the world. The initial idea of the project was to start an IM app (Instant Messaging) as the core vision/mission of the company was to foster connection between people and share happiness back in 2014. However, due to the lack of proper knowledge of advanced technology and a clear revenue source, we had to postpone our idea.
Rikesh, Vivek, and Me started a software company and collaborated with Guru Samundra to do a project that would provide astrological services to people around the globe through our app which successfully grew to become a company. We are now employing 40 professionals and serving more than a million users across the world. Astro Veda is Nepal based company that provides astrological services to the people in need with the goal to make their life easier and advise them to live a happy life.
Having served over a million users, the main reason most people are unhappy is because of their inability to know about themselves and their relationship with their partners. This very insight helped us to come up with a solution: AstroPod Dating – Made in Stars. This mobile application is something we dreamt of making since our starting days as it provides happiness and connection (our original dream to make an IM). This was only possible for us through the path of Astrology rather than mere technology and idea.
We do believe that Stars have a strong influence on our life and the path we follow. Identifying them early would be a great advantage and asset as well.
Hence the motto – Love is not in the air, it’s cliché; Actually, love is in the stars.
Why AstroPod Match?
Popular dating apps are only trying to encourage people to post nice and appealing pictures to show their traits, characteristics, lifestyle, and emotional aspect of themselves along with a paragraph of bio on which they would put a major emphasis.
While other dating apps are still using those traditional long and tiresome forms filling algorithms to find the perfect match for themselves. These dating apps are trying to identify and categorize each person with a set of queries to fill, yet they are not able to identify the real personality traits and emotional aspects of that person to find the PERFECT MATCH.
In both cases, one has to go through several ‘HIT and TRIAL’ interactions and dates to see if the person or the online match is compatible for him/her.
AstroPod brings the ancient knowledge of Vedic Astrology Match Making into the modern-day fast-paced dating world. It is an amalgamation of astrological matchmaking with the perception and preferences of the relationship in the modern-day world. It helps you check a total of 7 key aspects of a relationship and calculates beforehand if that person would be a PERFECT MATCH for you or not. It is a location-based dating app that lets you check astrological compatibility before swiping them right, you heard it right, before letting them know that you are interested in them.
