No doubt all of us are social animals by nature, and the tenor of our social life holds one of the most important influences on our mental health. Having an opportunity to lead quality social life contributes greatly to our ability to have positive and durable relationships with other people.
Technologies have found a surprising solution to help people interact.
Beacons, which Apple refers to as iBeacons, are hardware devices that can be detected by mobile devices, and more specifically, by mobile apps running on users’ devices. So, like many other technological advances, rapid growth in the iBeacon/BLE device market could mean an emerge of the whole new niche of micro-location mobile apps.
Panda is an iOS app that helps users organize and manage their social activities.
The app is equipped with the indoor navigation system which helps find people in public places, for instance, restaurants or nightclubs. Panda can inform its users about the number of people at the moment inside a venue and show their exact location on the facility map, display their profiles, and filter profiles by gender, age, interests, etc.
Users can add, share and view content inside the app, chat with others. Furthermore, the app detects events that occur in a vicinity, like a happy hour or a giveaway, and informs its users. Also, Panda can help users decide which places to visit by displaying a number of app-friends at each location, or even a number of males and females at a certain venue.
The main challenge was to design and develop an app from the scratch since devabit engineers used brand new technologies not vastly used before.
