    It's been a tremendous pleasure to help design Ness' all-new Profile 2.0.

    This project started with a task of updating our old Profile, and blossomed into a company-wide effort to show just how powerful and insightful a user profile could be.

    Our goal was to rethink the way our tastes are presented in an iPhone app. We wanted to provide a deeply personal, yet fluid experience that fit in well with the existing Ness UI, but that also displays some of the rich data that Ness learns about a user. Considering that Ness may only have 10 restaurant ratings from a user, how far could we really take this Profile 2.0?

    It turns out that we were able to show a boatload of cool stuff:
    - Top Five Cuisines
    - Top Cities
    - Average Rating
    - All Ratings
    - All Reviews
    - Most Similar Friends
    - Cuisines You Both Like
    - Restaurants You've Both Rated
    - Restaurants You'll Both Enjoy
    And of course, some unique animations to tie it all together.

    Profile 2.0 is now available in the Ness app:

    @Kingsley Harris Thank you! The Taste Match element was the feature I wanted most for Profile, and I'm glad you like it. Has it helped you learn about friends, or help you find new friends who have similar tastes yet?

    @Marissa Louie I've been using Ness for a bit and I'm connected to some people who I know really well, like for 15+ years. I looked at the taste match with one friend and It pretty much confirmed that our tastes aligned.

    @Josh Tilton Thank you so much! I'm glad you're loving it so far. I'm curious, which part of Profile do you like best, and what else would you like to see in Profile, or otherwise?
