A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

We established TravelMe Now, a service dedicated to finding cutting-edge solutions. We want to make your future travels even more fun but most importantly, we want to make them easier!
Why use this app over any existng website/app?
Well first of all we incorporate the information of the best traveling related websites like trip advisor and yelp in one easy to use mobile application. Secondly, we not only show you all the places each city has to offer you, but we also show you how to get there, we show you the actual weather and we even give you the option to make a reservation and save a place to view later, yes even offline, and all of this within one simple app! And lastly, by facilitating all of this in one simple app, we assure you that you will save some battery you might want to use for other activities!
what are we going to use the money for?
The funds we raise from this Kickstarter are going to be used to hire a qualified mobile application developer. The left over money will be used for marketing and getting the app to be discovered.
So how the app works:
The app will ask you in the home screen which destination you want to visit. Then it takes you to the menu where you choose what type of sleeping place you want to sleep at f.e: Hotels, Motels, etc. You choose what type of activities you want to perform f.e: Hiking, sightseeing, etc. Lastly you choose what type of restaurant cuisine you want to eat like f.e: Italian, Mexican, etc. Note: You can choose to turn off any of the three options if for example you only want to see restaurants. On the main screen where you see all the results you get the options: Make a reservation, call, directions within the app and lastly an option to save the place so you can view it offline.
Furthermore, the app will show you a very clean looking weather page, and a traveling map that guides you to your desired location.
We got different 4 different logo designs, we would love it if you would submit your favorite design on the contact form of our website.
Feel free to check out our website and subscribe to our mail list to be notified when the app comes out! No spam mail :)
The app will be completely free of charge in the beginning, just to make sure that everything works as planned and everyone loves it. After a certain amount of time we may make some options that cost us money, like for example the use of maps, premium. It will all be very cheap and you can cancel it any time. That way you can purchase "premium" for your vacation and then simply cancel it afterwards. Or you can buy a heavily discounted yearly subscription. Main functions will remain free!
We thank you for supporting TravelMe Now, we hope to be your future travel companion :)
Risks and challenges
A big challenge for us will be convincing the people to actually use our premium options. We are convinced that by giving the people a trial of 3 days, people will get to understand the whole concept and will actually want to buy it, even if it's just for a short period.
