The setup process was fine until you had to connect to IG, why?
@drewshah1234 We have users connect to IG because it allows users to preview the IG grid of whoever they're chatting with. This helps show they're talking to real people, and it helps get an idea of what the other person is like/interested in. The actual IG username isn't displayed, so unwanted follower requests aren't an issue. Our goal with the IG preview is to help break the ice and build a connection!
@meganshuki I see, thanks for the reply!
I agree with @drewshah1234 . I don't like the fact that I'm forced to connect my instagram. Is there a reason for this? @senorleche @ryan_peng @allen_loh @meganshuki @devonw23 Congrats on the launch btw!

@lamaalrajih @meganshuki It makes complete sense, but it is required for login which was the issue. Although, I rather have IG required then not required.
Good job guys! Very cool UX.
@clement_delangue thanks so much for the support! We'll keep on improving!

Take a look its a very different social experience.

Pros:

Tired of diminishing of return when matching with strangers

Cons:

Its hard to control the banana count
