Have you ever been afraid that a lack of conversational starters would lead to a premature end to your date? Or has it been stopping you from reaching out to that tinder date that you always wanted to meet? We all have our awkward first dates. The other party might have vastly different interests that you know nothing about, making conversations hard to continue.

All these will soon be a thing of the past with Cuepid, the revolutionary app that prompts you with intelligent quotes and facts that allows you to say it like you know it! Cuepid make first dates survivable by helping you carry on the conversation when you have nothing to say,impressing anyone with your wide knowledge and deep insights

What it does

Cuepid is an interactive app that prompts interesting facts or quotes about the topic that is at hand, such as a movie genre or a type of sports. This keeps stalled conversation due to lack of knowledge of your partner’s interest flowing, and draws your partner closer with deeper conversation.

How I built it

We first drew out a wireframe and a storyboard of how we envisioned our application to be. After that, we used Muse to do the UI/UX of the app, with the help of design tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator to make the appropriate logos and the design of the application. The backend of the app was coded directly in Javascript and HTML.

Challenges I ran into

Integrating our scripts with the Muse generated code Getting the webpage to work on different languages and conventions (HTML, CSS, JS) Finding a free server to host our website Staying awake for 36 hours Troubleshooting HTML code is not easy.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Picking up Photoshop and HTML from zero programming background within 2 days.

What I learned

Learning that building a website was easier than expected with the help of Muse. Building an app that you want to use is fun. Sometimes less is more

What's next for Cuepid

Rolling it out iOS and Android to make it easier to use. Adding voice recognition such that Cuepid is able to detect the flow of your conversation to provide you with suitable prompts without user inputs. Incorporate machine learning and other APIs to provide a constantly updated and comprehensive service. Be user-responsive to have more suitable prompts for each individual. Expand our services to include matchmaking and first date suggestions on locations and activities
