If you follow me on Twitter, you probably have heard that I involved in Darisini application. Basically, it’s an application (currently available for iOS devices and Android phones) that tries to help you to find some specific venues from a certain categories. You can go to Darisini’s website or read its blog. I would like to share some ideas/details behind the application development.
How it was started?
I can’t remember when Darisini came into discussion with my friends. But, the idea arose from my personal problem. I go from Jogjakarta to Jakarta regularly. When I was in Jakarta, I usually asked my friends when I was about to go somewhere. Sometime, I just tweeted and asked for directions. I utilize Google Maps and also Nokia Maps. I personally like when I get the solution (in this case reference/direction) on my own. I don’t always want to ask my friends — because at the same time they would know where I was, or where I wanted to go. Privacy? Probably. The point is: I need something on my phones that helps me with my problems.
