One big reason people miss out on great events is that they come across events in offline manner, be it posters on coffee shops, malls, gym, work place and so on. There is no easy way to track these events on flyers and we just wanted to fix this problem. With this as our inspiration, we decided to make a mobile app through which the user just simply takes a picture of the event poster that you see and the app will automatically match it against a big database of events, fetch all the relevant details like date, time, location and add it to their phone calendar!
Yes, it’s that simple: Just click a photo and the event is saved on your calendar!
We hacked out this idea during the InMobi hackathon last weekend, check out the demo below and send “Love Pocket!” to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like us to launch it!
