Over the past couple of months, we have been working hard on user experience and user interface. We are excited to present you an update of what we have done!
Essentially, our system now has three easy interfaces: 1) Search, 2) Match, 3). Browse. We will make sure that you’re able to find EVERYTHING you were looking for using these three modules. Let me show you some examples of what I mean:
