What is Platonic?

An iOS and Android Mobile app which aims to combat loneliness by offering a platform for users to find and form platonic relationships with one another.


17 Web Dev partnered with McCubed Think Tank to create the iOS version of the Platonic mobile app. We developed the entire frontend structure and backend of the BETA version in Swift. Additionally, we developed a PostgreSQL database and hosted it on AWS servers.

Research Backed Design

We incorporated an agile, scrum based methodology to gather qualitative and quantitative data. After finding the target user demographic, we leveraged UX principles to find and eliminate usability and functionality problems.

Developed in-house

In conjunction with Swift, PostgreSQL and AWS, our team integrated various animations and API's like Google Maps and liquid swipe. We leveraged AWS' Simple Notification Service (SNS) and created web sockets for a seamless messaging platform.

We’re excited to work with you
