KCYS is a company looking for a programmer to program for a new iOS mobile app. The app is called Discover New Places. The objective is for students between ages 12 and 25 to look for new places in the region with a specific budget, type and time. The app will develop in Zurich Switzerland, therefore, be functional in two languages(German and English).
Each customer will have to sign in the app through email and create a profile. In the home page, there will be places that the customer has already visited and options for the most frequently searched places. When a customer is looking for a new place, he or she can decide to search up a name he or she has heard of, or search more generalized topics such as a restaurant that only serves breakfast, or a cinema, or a specific categorized shop. Once a place is found, there will be information on the specific area, such as price ranges, opening hours and certain discounts and coupons. The customer will be able to chat with other profiles who have visited that place to get their opinion, there will also be a place to rate and review places, so people know what the place is like first hand.
There will also be a GPS system installed into the app, so customers will not have to go to a different page to know how to get to the place they are looking for. We still do not know if the app is going to be free, upfront cost or purchase, we are hoping the app will be free so it is available for more people around Zurich.
