Shake your Trip
Shake your Trip quickly generates personalized trips based on a given timeframe. This concept was created during a Startup Weekend event in 2016. The main idea was to come up with a way to save time planning an upcoming trip or to create an itinerary on the run for people to make the most of a layover. For the itinerary to be personalized, an "interests" component was added to generate custom locations to visit.
When planning a trip, the user first has to identify places that match their interests and what they wish to visit. If on a layover, the user needs to be careful about the timeframe they have to visit the city while being careful about distances between the different locations to be back at the airport in time. We identified three constraints that helped us define the app and its main functions.
