Updating the Check-in

Updating the Check-in

Updated Feb, 4th 2013

Concept
The app allows you to know historical, chronological, and interesting info about the places you visit or "check-in" to.
From a street in Paris to a monument in Cairo, from a cafe in San Francisco or a Cathedral in St. Petersburg.
The app will push information in a very easy and digestible way, giving you insights and highlights about the place you are currently in.
You will learn a lot more from every "check-in" and from every place you go to. 
Two ways that you get the info: 
- By checking in 
- By allowing the app to send you push notifications 

Don’t wanna be a local city guide, or recommend things to do, we are just letting people know (a lot) more about places they are already going to.
Bringing to the surface interesting info about “where you are” at this moment in time. These could be actual historical facts or a person’s knowledge (street knowledge).
Vision
The biggest database of “city knowledge”  

Mission
Uncovering the history of places and venues in your city
