MOBILE INFORMATION SYSTEM: MOVIEMATEPre-driving teens looking for a movie to see with friendsTeam 5Dan ChowAhra ChoMichael LenKirsten Thulborn
PROBLEM STATEMENT:Currently, to organize an event, pre-driving teens must use anumber of different mobile applications to get all of the informationthey need and their friends together.Each separate service provides the user with excellent and detailedinformation, however they are not designed to seamlessly integratewith each other.MovieMate takes features from many popular services such asGoogle Maps, Fandango, and Facebook and merges them intoone application. In addition, the application provides the user witha way to coordinate transportation for all of the people attendingthe event.

DESIGN PROCESS: WHAT WE REALIZED-What if a user wants to see which of his or her friends arefree before making plans?-What if a friend is invited and they want to go but they don’twant to see the movie that the coordinator has chosen?-Can we add the order in which kids will get picked up ifthey are car-pooling?-Can users purchase the tickets through the application?-What if a movie is rated R? Pre-driving teens will not beold enough to see the movie without a parent.
