Vampr Team 2017

August 2, 2017

Blueprints, bugs and bangers

It’s been an incredible couple of weeks here at Vampr HQ. Our user numbers grew beyond mine and everyone else’s wildest expectations, which was capped off by being able to share the moment with the whole Vampr team, who had come together from around the world to kick off planning for V3 – we took the above photo to celebrate!

In the last 10 days alone, you guys have racked up an additional 1 Million swipes and made an insane 110,000 new connections (in just 10 days!) And at our end, we have scoped out a vision for the platform that has us truly excited, and hope will offer our community another level of service and opportunity.

But hey, it’s not all milk and honey. The large volume of new signups has brought its fair share of technical glitches. Being a small team we are working as fast as we can to squash the bugs and can only promise that if you stick with us through these growing pains you will not be disappointed.

On the subject of growing pains, we are wary of some damaging reviews in the App Store and Google Play Store, which might possibly deter some people from joining our wonderful community. There’s no way we want to see our ship sink before it gets into full sail so if you have an issue, please send it to me — I will personally respond to all reports and user issues.

And for all you Vampr lovers, if you can spare some App Store love that would be fantastic 🙂

There is a lot of genuine support for the platform and a pile of good news stories. One of the best parts of my job is just hearing about people who have met because Vampr exists. You can check some of these out with the continuing Vampr Stories monthly series, which we’ve been posting on our social media channels. This month, we featured Adrian, a producer and multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles, who connected with Viviana, a vocalist from Miami. They’ve got plans to make a banger of a track — we can’t wait to hear it!

To all of you who have jumped on board and helped us knock down the 20th century barriers to connecting and collaborating, a big big thanks. We look forward to continuing this journey with you ✌️️
