5 min readMay 30, 2023


The NomadHer App offers the fastest ways to find your female travel buddy in just 10 seconds. Take a moment to explore its upgraded function, designed to help you find the perfect travel companion you’re looking for.

Recognizing the thrill and excitement of solo travel, the NomadHer team understands the significance of meeting like-minded women along the way. With this upgraded function, you can easily connect with female travelers who are traveling in the same city and have similar itineraries, enriching your adventures in ways you never imagined.

How Did the Team Come Up with the Idea?

Valuing User Feedback: Putting People’s Voices at the Forefront

At our core, we prioritize user satisfaction and constantly strive to enhance our services based on user input. Through diligent monitoring and analysis, we gain valuable insights into how users engage with our app. We appreciate the invaluable feedback and suggestions shared by our users, which serve as catalysts for continuous improvement

In recent months, our dedicated design team has actively engaged with app users, conducting interviews to delve deeper into their perspectives and experiences with the app.

Among the recurring feedback we received, a common desire emerged: the need for improvements in the Travel Buddy function. Users expressed their preference for more streamlined connections with fellow female travelers through the NomadHer platform.

Taking these valuable insights into account, we were committed to refining the Travel Buddy function to better cater to the desires and preferences of our users. By applying user feedback and integrating it into our development process, we aimed to create a seamless and enriching experience for our community of travelers.

People’s voice always matters to us, and we are dedicated to creating an app that truly meets your needs and aspirations.

How We Upgraded the Travel Buddy Function of the App

The journey to upgrade the Travel Buddy function started with a deep dive into user feedback. We conducted numerous interviews to understand the pain points and challenges faced by NomadHers when searching for travel companions. Armed with this valuable information, our dedicated team gathered around the table for a brainstorming session, aiming to find effective solutions.

During our discussions, we focused on three key questions that guided our efforts:

  1. What makes NomadHers feel uncomfortable with the current function?: We delved into the aspects of the current function that made users feel uneasy or dissatisfied. By pinpointing these pain points, we could develop targeted improvements to enhance the overall experience.
  2. How can we improve the process of finding a travel buddy?: Our aim was to streamline the process of finding a travel buddy, making it more intuitive and efficient. Through careful consideration of user feedback, we sought to create a seamless and user-friendly interface that simplifies the search for compatible travel companions.
  3. How will female travelers use this new function?: Understanding how our female travelers would utilize the upgraded function was crucial. We envisioned their unique needs and preferences, ensuring that the new features would empower them to connect with like-minded individuals and embark on memorable adventures together.

One prominent issue we identified was the mixing of posts in the lounge section, making it challenging to find travel buddy-related content. To address this, our first step was to categorize users based on their travel status: those planning to travel, those already exploring a new city, and locals.

With this categorization in mind, we are developing a dedicated page where users can effortlessly find female travel buddies based on their desired dates and destinations. This new feature will offer a more targeted and efficient approach to connecting with potential travel companions.
