Selfie Hotspot app preview

The pace of the technological progress has changed over the past century – thanks to such technological giant leaps, we are given the opportunity to enjoy numerous benefits like fast communication at no cost, remote ‘office’ work and much more but the real buzz word is ‘Selfie’.

‘Selfie’ was elected the word of 2013, according to Oxford English Dictionary and since then it showed no signs of being a passing trend.

According to Statista, the percentage of adults in US who have taken a selfie as of August 2018 is higher with younger generation – 82% of adults between 18-34 years old have taken a photo of themselves and uploaded it to the social media platforms. Moreover, as of January 2019 almost 4.4 billion people were active Internet users and 3.5 billion were social media users in digital population worldwide.

Due to the rise of the social media and front-facing cameras, ‘selfies’ occupied our camera rolls, social profiles as well as everyday vocabulary. Although taking selfies has become a very popular trend and ‘everyone’ can make one, it is not as simple as it seems – it can involve editing, changing background and adding other effects to the image prior to uploading it to the social media platforms. All these features made selfie-taking popular beyond belief and without any signs of slowing down.

Since these quick self portraits have turned into a permanent component of our culture and became an ubiquitous phenomenon, Zesium wanted to contribute to the ongoing culture trend and enable users to make superior and more sophisticated selfies with just a tap away.

Selfie HotSpot is an application that helps people to capture and share their treasured moments as well as the exact spot where they are taken in a simple way. Hence, anyone can discover places or share their own spots, inspire others to take their own photos or just go and  explore. Users can create unique photos at different interesting locations and share them with other users since we are all visionaries in our own ways.

Selfie HotSpot is really easy to use – the user should just open an app and take a selfie or a photo of their favourite place. Then, the user can put a description of it along with a hashtag of their location or surrounding and finally, share it and watch the place becoming a hotspot.   

The colours for the spots range from green for a less visited place, over the orange for an average visited place all the way through to red, which means that the spot is very popular for taking pictures and contains multiple photos.

Besides basic options like sign up, log in etc. the user is able to see Photo Feed which will show them the nearest hotspot locations where they can easily click on ‘Take me There’ option. Photo Feed screen shows all photos taken in the surrounding area listed by the distance starting from the user’s location. Once the user clicks on the photo, the Map Screen opens.

Map Screen works in two way: first, showing only the user’s location and the surrounding area map of 500 meters, under condition that there is a hotspot within, or if no hotspot nearby – then it shows surrounding area of 2500 meters or 5000 meters as the ultimate option. Secondly, if the user clicks on a photo from the Photo Feed, the Map Screen will contain both, user’s location and the location of the chosen photograph. If the Map contains too many photos to show, Selfie Hotspot groups them in a cluster through a standard Google Maps Clustering.  

 

When the User takes a photo, the very same photo appears and the user can enter a description and add the hashtags. Once the user decides to move to the next action, the photo is uploaded to the server with the geo-location and the user’s name.

When the user wishes to share the photo, the share screen shows profile photo, the taken photograph, description of the photo and the icons of the social media platform (the user wants to share the photo on).

The user can coordinate his profile screen through basic information such as profile photo, first and last name, screen name, number of posts and forgot password option.

 

Zesium is accountable for the design of Selfie Hotspot app, which is modern yet user-friendly and most importantly, clear – the user instantly understands how to navigate through the app.

Backend was written in Java using Spring framework with the database in MySQL.

 

What was once considered as high-tech, today is accessible to almost every person in the world and one of the main changes brought to the people by smartphones is the selfie photography.

People like to follow trends and keep the pace with the technology novelties and Selfie Hotspot gives them a chance to try different ‘selfie’ versions and access the abundance of locations they can ‘digitally visit’ and demonstrate with a single photo.

Selfies are the proof that we have developed a technology that allows us to capture our valuable moments and be a part of it at the same time. Through selfies, people merge themselves into the surroundings and celebrate by sharing the moments with friends and fellows.

 

As we are witnessing companies like Facebook to have more than 2 billion users or Whatsapp with 1.2 billion users, it is highly unlikely that selfie phenomenon will fade away anytime in the near future.

Selfie Hotspot application is a perfect match for people who are an integral part of this phenomenon and want to explore modern and trendy ways to make their ‘Selfie’ portraits unparalleled and breathtaking.
