Flockr is a travel application targeted towards users that are interested in travelling with other people, and collaboratively planning these trips. Flockr has been designed with this in mind, and has some key features that empower users to plan trips with their friends, family or business partners.

With Flockr, you can create a trip with other users and specify permissions for each of them. This allows other members of the trip to adjust the destinations in the trip, as well as the arrival and departure dates of each location.

Users can also create sub trips (legs) allowing them to easily manage a larger trip. All of this can be done collaboratively in real time. When managing these trips in real time, we thought our users would like some way of communicating with each other, in case they are not in the same room. This is why we have included text and voice chatting within our application, these are available from anywhere in the app, and there is also a shortcut to create a group chat from a trip

There's no commonly used social media platform that is dedicated to events like festivals, concerts, plays or markets.

Event information is often fragmented between individual sites, ticket distributers and various social media platforms.


iVentr is a website where users can follow each other to see events they are interested in or going to.

We use external APIs to find as many events as we can and gather them in one place.

Users can find events nearby and plan trips from destination to destination to go to these events.

Users can share photos of any events they go to and check out photos from users they are following.

Planning for international meetings, expos and conferences is an expensive and time-consuming process for many organisations. Organisers often face a long and tedious planning process as employee attendance, preferences and needs change. Lack of communication and poor collaboration cause employees to often feel out of the loop or have little say with this process. It is also difficult to keep track of documents such as receipts and itineraries with non-centralised email correspondence.

Travelr enables organisations to plan and manage business trips for their teams more effectively and easily. Our app provides centralised trip planning information; readily accessible to all trip members on their computer or mobile to allow seamless trip organisation. Travelr keeps trip information together with the ability to easily upload and view trip related files or media. Organisers can export trip information by downloading a generated trip itinerary pdf or using the built-in email system to share this with colleagues. Travelr encourages a highly collaborative environment during the trip planning process with access to tools such as Slack communication, a built-in trip commenting system and real time trip sharing. These features ensure members remain engaged and will get the best experience while saving organisers'.

Everyware has taken a spin on this application by allowing its users to create and solve quests as they travel around the world. Users are incentivised to use Odyssey by being rewarded with points and badges for utilising features of the application.

Quests are a list of riddles that, once solved, reveal destinations that users can travel to. Once the user arrives at the revealed destination, their current location can be used to check-in at that location and unlock the next riddle in the quest. Users solve a quest by guessing and checking into each location.

As well as the fully comprehensive desktop site, users of Odyssey can open our application via a web browser on their mobile phone. This allows users to take Odyssey with them in their pocket on their journey to solve quests.

Odyssey can provide a new and exciting edge to campus open days, museum tours, events, and even during guided tours.
