BRIEF

Roommates is a mobile application for roommates which help them to communicate with each other in a fast and direct way. Through this application they can update notes, make a payment, send messages to their roommates.

IDEATION / PROBLEM

In nowdays, lot’s of people like students, single people shares room to save rent fee. So am I and most of my friends are living with roommates as well.

Each roommate has their own rules to organize their house but there are some common things we usually do :


  • Roommates usually split payments using Venmo, PayPal or cash. ( Rent, Wifi, utility fee or household goods)

  • Roommates usually need to give a notice about bringing friends, having a party or any other situation.

  • Roommates usually use a message to communicate with each other.


However, It’s hard to memorize every note we made each other. Sometimes I forget to pay utility fee in due date and sometimes it’s hard to have a conversation if you have more than one roommates. What if these functions can combine in one single application and give us a notification?


OTHER APPLICATION RESEARCH
Most popular apps for roommates:

We are using several apps for different purposes to communicate with roommates. To talk to each other, people mostly use i message, facebook message, Whatsapp. To split money, people use Venmo or Splitwise. Some people also use OurGroceries to buy stuff together. I tried to figure out the most important functions for roommates like messages, splitting payment and put them together in one application.
