Whimzer : A mobile app for finding new people around you, who want to engage in various activities with each other, on the spot.
The need we are addressing:
- Inability of finding the right thing for yourself
- Lack of friends
- Lack of romantic relationship partner
1 Adelina is a vegan single mother and wants to buy fruits from the fruit market, but has no car. She is interested in meeting people alike nearby. The app can match Adela with vegan people, or people who feel like driving, or why not both categories.
2 Dumitru is a programmer, he doesn't like his job that much, but he likes to sit by the lake after work, having some prosecco and enjoying the sunset, and he would like to find a girl to join him specifically for that activity.
3 Otilia is preparing for the design drawing exam, but she recently moved to town and knows no one. She would be interested in finding some peers, maybe preparing for the same exam, and draw together.
4 Cristi is getting bored and just wants to check out what’s happening in the city around him, to see if he could join someone. All he has to do is input activities he can think of, and he will be presented with the available users doing something similar.
5 Maria and Ilinca are visiting Paris, and what to find the cool spots, so they need a localer to show them around.
1 The user cannot vote other wishes unless he makes a wish of his own (the idea here is that a user can make use of the content only if he contributes as well).
2 Nice to have - would be interesting that the user is presented with some trending/recent/random wishes around, until he makes a wish ( so from the moment he enters the app, until he makes the wish ) so that he gets an idea of what's going on.
3 We also need a report user option somewhere - where the user can select a reason for reporting the content of another user.
Key values :
1 The activity/wish/action is the central concept. The app is a person discovery engine based on shared interests. It is not necessarily about the identity of a person (pictures, age, name), but we think that is important as well, only on second place (after the wish).
2 Everything is supposed to happen now (next hours) - so this is why the wish is kept active for only 2-3 hours. So when you go online and post your wish, if you get some similar wishes, you know those people are there, in need of something just as you are.
