Inspiration

Known as "The Planner" in our friend group, Jason meticulously plans out the detail of every one of our friend group's outings. This would always lead to an exhausted Jason, and a flawless trip.

What it does

Itineready intelligently creates an itinerary for you based on a location (either your current location, or a location you decide to input). Furthermore, if you don't like an event on the generated itinerary, you can simply swipe it away. Upon swiping the event away, your preferences are recorded and fed through an artificial intelligence (based on markov-data chains) to give you a better suggestion. In addition to intelligent event suggestions, Itinerary also has intelligent event organization. Using multiple aspects of the traveling salesman problem, including heuristics, we managed to create a path between your events that would lead to minimal time spent waiting for buses, or (gasp) exercising.

That's all fine and dandy, but the real test comes day of the trip. Itineready has a travel mode that allows for robust planning situations. Say you spend an extra 20 minutes at Pete's Grill. No problemo. When you navigate to your next destination, Itineready suggests a new itinerary (by deducting 20 minutes off of various events that are deemed less crucial in your itinerary) that allows you to spend as much time as you want stuffing your face full of delicious Filet Mignons.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. From being able to share your itinerary with others across the world, to advanced customization for event preferences, Itineready is designed for both advanced and basic users.
