Hello everyone. We are group number 4 and we are interested in creating a mobile application. We had a few ideas and we also conducted a survey to get feedback from other people (results will be posted in detail at a later time). After evaluating the results and considering our options we have decided to choose the idea about a shopping guide application which will provide sales, discounts and offers from shops.
The idea is for an application where shop owners as well as users would be able to post information about sales, offers and discounts provided at a specific shop. We believe that this information is only available when people visit the shops or if they specifically search each shop’s website. By using this application, users could get informed on current sales and offers without the need to go to the shop themselves. Shop owners could also use this to promote and advertise their shops. By allowing users to post such information, other people can also read comments and rate the posts (sales, offers, discounts), therefore calculating how worthy or accurate a post is and perhaps find out about the variety of items offered on sale, their availability and their price ranges. Further details and features will be described in future blog entries.
