PoolMe: A web application that allows you to share your rides with other users
Have you ever noticed that many times you are not utilizing full occupancy of your vehicles? Even if you want to utilize it, you don’t know who will be travelling on the same route as yours. This supply of occupancies in your vehicles goes unnoticed and hence cannot be used. On the other side, there are many people who do not own a vehicle and need to commute quite frequently. They usually get into crowded public transport to commute. They don’t have information about under-utilized vehicles (in terms of occupancy) on the route of their commute. Hence they don’t ask for it. This demand of occupancies does not meet with supply because of lack of information. That’s the time you need an application that allows you to share your rides with people who will be travelling on the same route as yours.
It is an application that provides you a platform to share information about your rides with other users so that you can pool them in your ride. Currently it has following features:
This application does not have any back-end. It uses “Local Storage” to persist the data. Application has a set of initial data for all the models. It saves this data in Local Storage on your first visit to the application. There onwards all the modifications, that you do, are persisted in the Local Storage. Hence even if you restart the browser and visit the application again, you will see your changes. You will lose your changes only if you clear the cache and empty Local Storage. Data will be initialized once again on your next visit.
This application is best viewed in the full screen mode ( F11 ) of the browser.
I like the idea but the execution is very confusing, the UI needs a bit more colours to make it exciting. Great work and good luck
Not a very sexy design but lots of potential.
slight delay after register, but still good
The UI was a bit confusing, wasnt sure really what to do.
Has potential, needs to be polished a bit more.
Nice idea. Application aside, you have very well defined instructions.
Nice job! Great idea!
Idea looks good UI needs some work though.
I like the clean and simple UI. A search by zipcode (with radius of x kms/miles) that automatically filters all the applicable trips would be useful.
This is good idea! If there was an app like this that many people used, I would certainly use it. I actually really want something like this!
The design could use some tweaks. For instance, the all trips view uses a lot of space, even when it doesn't need to. The map view could be removed when not used.
It would also be cool if I could search for a destination using my location, and I would get hits if anyone is going past my location and past (or to) my destination. That way you could pick up people on the way.
