2017: Group 3

GROUP 3 – FOMO

Description of Product/ Service/ Innovation:

FOMO is a Mobile Application that helps the user in creating and co-ordination amongst their friends. It starts with the user creating a Chat Group in the Application and then further adding his/her friends and family in that group for that particular outing. The User after creating the particular group decides with the members on a particular date and time with reference to their calendars to meet up at a particular time. The Venue of the activity is decided on a poll basis of the member’s preferences. Soon after as the date and time for the activity approaches the Application sets out a reminder for the user, thus telling him/her about the event, location and time. The Application also has a feature where members who are non-responsive in the chat get a priority buzz as a reminder. The Application also features a suggestive/alternative option of restaurants/activities around incase things don’t work out at the designated place. The Application also has a feature which would allow the bot to take charge and decide the activity on behalf of the user based on the user’s pattern of work, play, eat. etc.
