Humans are social being and nobody loves being isolated in a social gathering. Irrespective of shy or an introvert, everyone loves to connect with another human. So, here the idea was to develop an app where people can connect with other peers in a venue. It’s more like when two people are in a place together but don’t know how to break the ice to initiate a conversation.
So this app basically help users check-in into a venue and see who else are also checked in and hence they can break a conversation by a single push — “Can I Buy You A Drink”, which sends a drink offer.
The app leverages Google Maps to show listed venues and check-in. Users can follow, become friends, send tangible gifts, chat, text or video with friends. An important feature of the app is “Icebreaker’s Night”. Users can take photos and videos when checked into a venue and a dynamic collage of images, sent to the user’s registered email after checking out from the venue. The platform used Stripe Payment Gateway to process payments for drinks, gifts, subscriptions etc.
The platform has a business portal for partners to login and manage venue listings, opening and closing hours, drinks offerings, gifts, orders, deliveries etc.
The client uses Administrator portal to manage businesses subscription, their billing account, and other aspects of the solution.
Some people cannot break the ice with the person sitting next to them. To solve this problem, the app allows its users to view other people profile and connect with them; thus, breaking the ice. When two people connect, there is a sense of belongingness, and they start to build a relationship based on their social needs.
People want to connect based on their choices such as race, ethnicity, age, hairstyle, relationship terms, sexual orientation, body build etc.
Some people cannot find the right lines to initiate a conversation.
When people check in into a place, they forget to let their friends know where they are, which can create distances.

Often shy or introvert person wants to connect but they just can’t approach.
