We wanted to give people the tools to get out and experience Hawaii at it's fullest! We believe our app can help our foreign visitors get out and experience Hawaii first hand, and help our small businesses all across the island.

What it does

The Vivid Hawaii app currently allows English and Japanese speaking users to discover new possibilities when traveling to Hawaii by providing insights and tools to experience the trips they want. Vivid Hawaii provides current and discerning shopping, dining, hotel, culture recommendations and discounts. The information is written by people who live here and can convey the essence of each destination better than anyone else, truly a resource that visitors want to read as well as reference.

In addition to being an informational resource, the app also incorporates geo location and Uber integration to take users anywhere, at a any time at a touch of a button. It's like having a local friend whenever you visit Hawaii.

See, eat and experience your way through Hawaii from the palm of your hand.

How I built it

We built it out the app using Javascript, Angular, Express, Mongodb, Jade and SASS.

What's next for Vivid Hawaii

We built this MVP at the Devleague/Uber hackathon so the next step would be to continue to flush out the app with content, additional language capability, and get users.
