FRESHMAN

When We Meet Again is an unconventional reminders application that uses the proximity between two users in order to deliver its reminders. For example, if Nikhil and I were to decide to discuss hackathon ideas the next time we meet, the next time our phones came close together, I would get the reminder. This is extremely useful in our forgetful & rushed world today, where we tend to always postpone (or procrastinate) the things we have to do.

What inspired us was the endless things we were forgetting to do when we decided to do it the next time we met. Our target user base is bottomless. From students to professionals to housewives, this app can be useful to everyone & anyone. We have an endless choice of location-based reminder applications today but none use relative-location or proximity between two phones as their parameter for reminding, which we thought was an untapped attribute of reminder applications.

Our app uses Bluetooth in order to detect the proximity of the phones. We establish peer-to-peer connections and don't store any data, making the process as seamless & private as possible.
