POOL has helped in developing innovative and new bleeding edge-solutions, products and technology-based ideas. With a highly experienced, passionate team, we have made it possible for Send Me a Sample to be brought to market as well as help prototype and deliver ideas like Twinned, which allows users to link bars and restaurants around the world.
We were responsible for helping plan and build an operating prototype application within a mobile framework for a proof of concept. This is in the early testing stage and we have restricted the application to London to help understand the user data. The idea is that Twinned is a new form of city guide. The problem with current city guides is that they are based on someone else’s tastes and not yours.
The prototype for Twinned allows users to link bars and restaurants around the world, using what you love in one city to find what you’ll love in another. An example of this could be that you’re in Buenos Aires and you’d like to go to a speakeasy-like Nightjar in London, Twinned would direct you to Floreria Atlantico. Pool was involved from the validation of the initial idea, UX and designing how the application would run.
The platform chosen 'Appery.io’ helped provide a RAD ( Rapid Application Development) environment across phones, tablets, and desktops. We are able to target iOS, Android, Windows Phone and web browsers with a single codebase, this was great to help validate the concept and test the backend data structure.
