APT is a service that allows apps to be discovered in the real world and not in an app store by delivering apps relevant to your location and situation. The service ambiently searches for relevant apps broadcasted locally or hosted in the cloud. These apps are filtered, ranked and distributed to individuals based on the user’s location and preferences.
This project explores the issue of personal connection to local community. Our team set out to create an application that would provide opportunities for individuals to get involved with their personally-defined “ground.” In addition, we wanted to encourage individuals to continually engage and build relationships with others in their “common ground.”
