For Stanford's Interaction Design course, my group developed an Android App to encourage people to explore and discover new places around them using image prompts.

A live wallpaper cycles through the most "interesting" photos taken near the user's current location (drawn from Flickr). Once the user sees an image she likes, she can tap the image to be directed to the location the image was shot.

Images are overlayed onto the camera view so that users get a sense of a picture's location, and the user's journey is recorded on a map along with photos taken along the way.

Our project was rated as one of the top 5 apps in the class from a panel of industry experts.
