[For context: A-Spec people are incredibly diverse, with varying relationship preferences and types of Aromanticism/Asexuality. We’re aiming to create an app that will help connect Asexual and/or Aromantic people across the world and give them the power to search for the specific relationships they want]

Apologies for the wait everyone! The updates go as follows.

  1. We’ve found some new volunteers to help us in the Frontend and Backend! Thank you for giving your time to help A-Café out!
  2. We might stick to the March 1st deadline, but not in the way we promised. What do we mean by this? At the moment, there is still no online functionality for the app, but there are bare essentials that users may be able to test out.

(This only applies to iOS. The Android side needs more work before it can be tested, as we aren’t doing cross-platform mobile development).

We’ll let you know if this becomes an option in early March; if it does, it will be more like an Alpha than a Beta. (Meaning we’re still messing around with the features and aesthetics). If it’s not a viable option, we’ll reevaluate our timeline. But either way, a testable app is coming.

New potential launch screen?

Since the first release of the prototype, we’ve experimented with the official look of the Beta. We’d love to know what you think of this look!

Possible A-Café launch screen and login screen. Both have a blue background and white text.

That’s all for now! Thank you all for reading, and until next time, have a wonderful rest of your day.
