Saltmates connects users within proximity to Earth's beautiful bodies of water.

Saltmates is a community of people who enjoy living the Ocean Lifestyle and engaging in beach related activities! Meet fascinating people wherever you are, and join the first social media platform dedicated to helping Ocean Conservation!

Lifted Solutions conceptualized the social enagement and designed and developed a newer design and interface that was similar to other platforms. With a niche based approach that allows you to search anywhere in the world, the app is quite sophisticated and innovative.

Driving Design to Delivery

All interfaces should be user centric, simplifying the whole experience and providing a stunning design that actually promotes engagement & discovery. We were astonished at the feedback of our early control group and we kept iterating until we were content.

User Experience and Wireframing

It took a solid month getting all the mobile designs for approval from the rest of the team, once done we knew exactly what to develop & the flow of all our services. We divided everything into milestones and off to the sprints we went!

Building in native environments for both Iphone & Android made some additional work but allowed us to capture a more intuitive expierence from start to finish.

Over 150+ screens to completely define the user experience in a visual format prior to development.

Visual and Interface Design

A stationary touchbar and a feature rich side menu allowed us to create a fluid experience on a platform that is very deep. Engaging the user and naturally taking them to different areas of our application is something that is done if the user consistently clicks around and explores the application.

This encourages time on application, and further engagement and boosts the active user rate.

We have had a lot of users tell us they joined the application because they say their friends using it and looked cool.


Connect with Ocean Lovers,
wherever you are.

The Outcome

A platform for people by the ocean and other bodies of water that enjoy social media and are looking to grow their network, love life or attend more events relevant to them.

The wonderful design & fluid development attracts a high user engagement time and allows for people coming back and discovering other creative aspects. We are always learning & refining.

The Future

We are already working on the next iteration and are always listening to our user base on what they like, don't like and could hope to see.

Once we have enough data, and input we will start reconstructing a new interface and strategizing for new cutting edge features & technical advancements.
