Lostin is a Berlin-based company which took on the mission of rethinking the travel guide in a very “Berlin way”. Their content is “curated by local experts” as the most renowned bloggers, journalists and photographers of the region contribute to a specific city guide, enticing you to get lost in the city.
From paper guides to their numerical embodiment: a mobile app - iOS & Android - which invites you to discover the most exceptional locations a city has to offer, as it allows for the planning of custom itineraries and facilitates transit. The app also supports offline usage, offering a city-specific data download system.
The aesthetic quality of the product is of the highest importance at Lostin and it appears it is a most contagious sentiment. The design challenge was to contaminate the mobile app with the beauty and elegance of the paper guides, a challenge whose complexity is multiplied by platform specific considerations exclusive to both iOS and Android OS.
From a technical standpoint, the implementation of an in-app purchase system is a noteworthy accomplishment. That being said, the most stimulating task of this software project remains the development of the Data Warehouse; the conception of its instinctive interface, which optimizes the data entry process, and of its architecture, which optimizes the data delivery speed.
