PikNik is named after its founders Pike and Nik. App addresses needs of international travelers. Idea is to have one app solution for all travel needs. Users can see hotels and BnB of their current location by default on app launch and can specify a location to see BnB properties of any other location as well. They can surf different options available and can book rooms through app. Users can apply filters to find hotels with in specific budget and a particular area. Prices against the selected stay changes as per the no. of residents and type of property. Every property can have multiple photos and Amenities details. Users can leave their ratings after they are done with their stay in a property. Based on multiple ratings given by different users, an average rating is calculated and is displayed in the front details of the property listing.
Apart from room booking, users can check climate conditions of the traveling destination beforestarting their travel and can thus plan clothing accordingly. App offers to check currency exchange rate of traveling country while comparing that with their own currency. World time feature helps check the time difference between user’s current location and time at his traveling destination.
App is useful for the users even after they reach the destination location. SoS service in the app lets people see nearest emergency services as per user’s current location. So if a user is on foreign soil and needs a hospital or police station or any other similar service, he can simply open the app to find one closest to him.
Admin has got the facility to add BnB and hotel properties from backend and can also manage bookings, but there is provision to pull this information using paid APIs also in future. Other sections of the app fetch information from Google API and other relevant APIs. App is intended to be continued under development for its 2nd phase where speech recognition and flight search features will be added.
