Since the start of the company, Qiito aims to provide a holistic package for all avid travelers, enabling them to have a hassle-free and memory experience. With the features available in their current website, users can easily browse through interesting trips and places the community have been to and create their own unique trip details. To preserve every trip memories, Qiito also aims to provide a platform to allow users to share their experiences through the photos taken during their trip.

In the recent year, Qiito has successfully launched their website and has garnered a substantial number of users in their database. As the list grows continuously, a critical issue also starts to surface. Many of their users are currently viewing their website via their mobile phone. To enable the users a better user experience while making use of their website, Qiito has created a mobile web version of their site.

It was then that Qiito realize the opportunities available in a mobile application. Thus, our group is invited to help them create a mobile application for them and to explore the possible avenues within a native application that enable the enhancement of the experience users can have.

Project Description
