WYA is a location-based social media application that provides people with an effortless way to connect and socialize with like-minded individuals through exciting social gatherings.

With WYA, users can discover various events and activities based on interests and preferences, whether it be a bar, restaurant, or even a home party. WYA's interface is designed and developed by Diffco with user convenience in mind, making it effortless to browse and RSVP to events, connect with other users, and explore exciting social opportunities. With a constantly updated catalog of bars and intuitive filters, including geo-location technology, maps, and contact lists, WYA guides users to their preferred establishments and helps them forge connections with like-minded individuals.

With only an idea for the application and
tight deadlines we embarked on a brainstorming session to:

  • Analyze the competitors
  • Identify the target audience
  • Create the effective development plan aligned with the product strategy

As a result of the brainstorming session, the optimal development plan was worked out. We also came up with many ideas which will be later used during the second phase of the development.

One of the first features added is My Tonight Plans

The app allows you to share the preferred social gathering for the night from the catalog on WYA with friends and discover like-minded individuals. The UI/UX design has been meticulously crafted to make planning evening activities, moving from bar to bar, and seeing friends effortlessly. Simplification iterations were intentionally made to remove unnecessary features and improve the overall experience.


WYA is dedicated to making every evening memorable, which is why the app offers a range of exciting rewards for users who commit to attending events. Whether it's a discount, a free cocktail, or a shot, WYA is developed to make sure the users enjoy the night.

WYA's invite feature lets users easily plan and enhance their social gatherings by sending the invites to friends and new connections in a couple of clicks. With this feature, users can ensure they never have a boring night, but always have exciting plans in mind. Since the app sends invitations and push notifications for smooth user experience we decided to provide passwordless authentication via SMS.
