Project Overview

Rippled Water is a system designer for planning trips and outings, specially made for fishing. The application covers every spectrum of trip planning i.e., from inviting friends to choosing a location, checking the weather budget management, and many more. The medium simplifies the daunting task involved in trip plans and allows users to spend less money. It helps you optimize time efficiently so they can focus on their fellow mates and on the trip.

Business challenge

For the Rippled Water project, the client required an application that could make fishing and other trip planning easier. The major parts of the projects include inviting friends, checking the weather forecast, temperature of lake water, sharing the location, finding a location, budget management, and more. Rippled Water application was to be designed for both mobile and desktop devices.

Weather forecast and expense calculating features in the application make it a useful tool for both group travelers and solo travelers. Users can gain additional advantages on fishing-related data by purchasing fishing journal products. The person sharing invites can also view the location of invitees after they accept his/her invitation.

  • The application required an attractive users option, with which users can invite any person to join their trip group from their contact list or email address.
  • Trip organizers have a key role in trip planning, it covers the majority of aspects which include sharing invites, deciding the start and end date of the trip, choosing a trip location, and sharing location with every person.
