According to our mentor’s recommendations, we have done extra research for our project proposal. For this, we investigated iPhone App Store and Android Challenge Top 50. Also Murat investigated Turkcell API and what they will provide to us. And we have browsed web to find similar applications. We’ve been inspired by wertago, softrace, cityslikkers, jaiku, strands, lifestreamer, tumblr and many others.
Our project proposal has been changed significantly according to our new ideas. We propose to develop a social mobile network which enables you to stream your life to others; keep track of your friends; get book, music, web site recommendations you may like; and find someone who share similar hobbies and interests.
People will be able to enter books they read, artists they listen, web sites they visit, cafes and bars they like. The back end of the system will also be able to retrieve additional relevant data from other social networking sites.
In this social network, system will recommend you stuff according to your current tastes like last.fm and stumble do. This system is different from other social network systems in terms of merging these advice systems into one. For example, it will be able to advice some books for you by tracing your music log and so on.
Using the location tracking capability which comes from Turkcell API and GPS info, people can find their friends who are near them and meet new friends with similar interests nearby.
