Ship makes finding a date more fun by bringing your friends into the dating app experience. On Ship, your friends find matches for you. Even your friends in relationships can help set you up, so you can all share in the crushes, the ghostings, and the situationships together. It used to take a village, now it takes a group chat.
How it works:
• Set up your profile, as either a dater or a matchmaker
• Start matching for yourself or for your friends
• Chat about prospects
• Follow each other’s dating activity
• Catch yourself actually enjoying a dating app

Ratings and Reviews
LOVE the concept, but has some initial kinks (to be expected)
This concept is brilliant! I’m not a fan of using dating apps for myself but one of my best friends is on all them and has chosen some terrible guys.. now I can hopefully find some winners for her and keep her from (completely) wasting her time!
The newness of the app is evident through some kinks - like not being able to see the names/photos of people in your crew, making it confusing - but once all of those are ironed out, this app will definitely take off! Super excited to start using it for my friends once the word gets out about it!

We are so happy that you love Ship! As I am sure you noticed, the bug making it hard to see who is in your crew has been fixed. Our dev team has done a fantastic job of ironing out most of the kinks since launch - and - we are also happy to report that Ship is adding tons of new users every day - Happy Shipping :)
My friend asked me to join her “crew” since she’s had bad luck with finding good guys, and I was excited to help; however, after opening the app, I very quickly realized I’d be zero help in her search.
I found you typically get the very basics - pictures, height, job title, alma mater, and distance from you. I just wish they’d maybe make more sections mandatory? Or ask users right away if they’re interested in a hook-up or relationship or something, and maybe allow the hook-up profile to be more sparse (not my thing, but no judgements here), but ensure other users have a more robust profile.
If you’re like me and are more interested in finding someone you could actually click with intellectually as well as physically, you might want to get something else.

Hey! First of all, thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback - we really appreciate your thoughts. Our dev team is working to bring further updates to our profile - stay tuned :) We hope that you give us another shot in the future and if you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us at email@example.com
I’ve been in a relationship for a while and haven’t been on the apps. I love that I can now participate and swipe for my friends. If they ever incorporate the idea of finding friends I am totally in! I do wish that friends could chat with the prospects. I’d like to be more hands on and groom some of these dudes (: My only complaint is that the profiles show how far away people are but not where they are located. My friend is moving to my city soon so I’d like to make sure the 60 mile away prospects are 60 miles in the correct direction!
