Grab a Fika iOS Application

The Grab a fika iOS application was developed in collaboration between me, Anton Malmquist, Kevin Orende and Rostislav Raykov. The application breaks the norm of effectiveness in regard of mobile applications, since it provides a method of meeting up and navigating that will not always give the easiest or most efficient means of transportation, but provides a novel view on how to find your friends. This is achieved by calculating and finding a café located in the geographical midpoint between the involved users. After doing this the application presents the user with simply an arrow pointing to the café and the distance to it, something that is not more efficient than agreeing on a time and place beforehand, but instead is more interesting.

The project was part of the Mobile computing course during my last year at the Interaction Design Master program and is submitted as a paper to the SIDeR conference in Stockholm.
