AstroPod dating app-Made in Stars launched in Nepal

KATHMANDU: Astro Veda, the US-based Nepali technology company, on Friday launched a dating app, AstroPod, in Nepal.

The announcement of the release of the app was made by organising a press meet at Radisson Hotel, Lazimpat, Kathmandu.

In the dearth of reliable dating apps in Nepal, the company launched the app with the objective of helping people find their perfect match.

The slogan of the app AstroPod ‍is ‘Made in Stars’. ‘We have launched the AstroPod dating app to share that experience. This app is different from other regular dating apps’, CEO Paribesh Koirala said and added, ‘This app comprises the facility of choosing perfect match designed on the basis of Vedic Astrological matchmaking. Moreover, one can have the facility of compatibility test before choosing a perfect partner.’

Starting a software company (specialising in app development) was our goal as it was a gateway to make something for the world being in a small part of the world. The initial idea of the project was to start an IM (Instant Messaging) as the core vision/mission of the company was to make the connection between people intact and share happiness, back in 2014. However, due to the lack of proper knowledge of advance technology and clear revenue source, we had to postpone our Idea.

Rikesh, Vivek and I started a software company and involved Guru Samundra to do a project that would serve astrological services to the people around the globe through our app which turned into a company that is now employing 40 professionals and serving more than a million users across the world. Astro Veda is a 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 happy life.

Having served over a million users, we have gathered that 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 come up with a solution — AstroPod Dating – Made in Stars. This mobile application is something we have dreamt of making since our starting days as it provides happiness and connects (our original dream to make an IM) all humankind needs in their life span. This was only possible for us through the path of Astrology rather than mere technology and idea.

We do believe that Stars have a stronghold in our life and the path we follow. Identifying them early will be a great advantage and asset as well.

Hence the motto – Love is not in the air, it’s cliché. Actually, the love is in the stars.

Why AstroPod Match?

Popular dating apps are only trying to encourage people to post nice and appealing pictures to actually 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. Those dating apps try to identify and categorise 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 a number of ‘HIT and TRIAL’ interactions and dates to see if the person or the online match is compatible for him/her.

AstroPodMatch brings the ancient knowledge of Vedic Astrology Match Making into the modern-day fast-paced dating world. AstroPodMatch is an amalgamation of astrological matchmaking with the perception and preferences of relationships in the modern-day world. It helps one check a total of seven key aspects of a relationship and calculates beforehand if that person will be a ‘perfect match’ for him/her 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.
