The Hop social application was created to solve problems that the group found when socializing on the weekends. People were not able to meet up with friends, or spent most of their evening trying to, because they didn’t know which location their friends were at. When that person found their friends, they had to wait in a line outside the bar or restaurant to get in. After this individual got through the line and found their friends, they may have to wait again for a drink. At this point, their friends may be ready to move on to the next location. Hop has been created to solve these problems and to make going out on the weekends a more fun and simpler process. The idea is to solve these problems through an application that allows you to track your friends, check-in to bars, see real-time wait times outside and inside the bar, and to accumulate points in the process.
