Pincloud branding and app

An app for travellers to digitally craft, creatively express and share their travel experiences.

The Brief

Pincloud is a new app for travellers to share their experiences using multimedia such as photos, videos and audio.

The end result of this project was a prototype to be shown during a presentation to potential stakeholders and to show the functionality to developers. The focus of the app is on sharing travel experiences and discovering new destinations. Viewers can explore by city to help plan their trip and can explore nearby once they are there to find gems nearby.

  • Sharing experiences

    Share your journey with other travellers through photos, videos and audio uploads.

    Sharing journeys help other travellers discover the world with you, you might even influence their next holiday destination. People can comment on uploads, share them with friends and add the item to their wishlist to tick off when they next go traveling.

    It's not one piece of media they can follow either, users can follow someone's whole journey if they have set the settings to public, meaning you can see what else the user has seen on their holiday.

  • Discovering new places

    With the discover feature on the app, it is easier than ever to find new places of interest before you go on holiday to help plan, or whilst you are there.

    There are a few different ways to help you find new places, either around you, or in a city you are interested in visiting. When exploring cities, you can find out more information about the place including statistics about user uploads and how many people have visited the destination. You are also able to view an activity feed based on that particular city.

    You can also use the application whilst traveling, and explore what is nearby so you do not miss anything whilst you are there. Want a bite to eat? You can find details about nearby restaurants including photographs, reviews and menu prices.

    Keeping up to date with other people's travels is also easy with live updates from the Pincloud community from all over the world in the recent feed section. You can also filter these updates to show only your friends feed so you can view their photos and keep informed about their travels and interact with them.
