FreePool is an app designed to solve the carpooling organization problem that plagues communities of all shapes and sizes.
FreePool is an mobile-first app designed to solve the carpooling organization problem that plagues communities of all shapes and sizes.
FreePool attempts to tackle the carpooling problem the way Slacked tackled the team communication problem. By converting carpooling into a community driven ride-sharing and ride-requesting app, anyone can create and join their own FreePool community.
Your company has a shortage of parking spaces? Or maybe you just want to stop contributing to the ever growing traffic problem by bringing your own car, but don't want to spend vast amounts of $ using current taxi services. No problem! Just join your Company's FreePool community, add your usual working comute, and you'll get instantly paired to any driving coworkers who have similar enough comutes to give you a ride!
And based on integrated app algorithms, as a driver, you can use the app to pre-arrange the gas percentage they need to pay to request the carpool. And with PayPal support, getting paid couldn't be easier.
But wait, there is more! Because FreePool will be free by default, anyone can create their own FreePool community. Whether you want to just arrange a car sharing to a concert between friends, or maybe just want to create a local FreePool community for your local neighborhood, FreePool has you covered!
Due to time constraints, a lot of the app functionality couldn't be completed in time. However, you can still do the following; * Login to the app * Create a Driver Profile * Navigate the Driver HomeScreen * Create new Rides

- The google maps integration is nice
- The form UI looks good
- It auto populates my previously entered vehicle information when accessing from a different device
- Can’t swipe between the first few slides, can only navigate using “next”.
- Too many button clicks to get to the first content screen (some of these pages are not necessary).
- There isn’t enough content on some screens, too much whitespace, could have been designed better.
- Should be able to preview the application before logging in (maybe photos or graphics of what the app does could be used to fill the whitespace on the first few screens).
- Hard to navigate. It’s easy to get “lost” in the application when using the back button provided. I went from the driver home screen to the “driver or rider?” screen and clicking "back" brought me to the basic information screen. A menu or some tabs would be helpful.
- Adding a new drive just shows as "Requesting" and never completes. It would be nice if this timed out or told me no rides found.
- The screen exceeds the browser height on iOS Safari so I have to scroll to the bottom, even though there isn't enough content to where that should happen.
- There is no input verification on the forms, trying to navigate on some screens without filling the page out will result in console errors.
- Part of the content is hidden behind the header so I have to drag the screen to see the content behind the header.
- Overall, there are some UI/UX improvements that could be made.
Nice. This app has more details than other carpool apps I have seen. Nice entry.
Also, your feedback on my entry is much appreciated.
Nice try guys in 48 hours.!! I suggest you guys to lift some more on design and Utility part.!! I liked your Idea it is good. Need some more elements in the site. I wish my feedback be more positive. :)
It will be great if you are playing a game which is developed by me and giving feedback :)
It is pretty clear you guys took on a big challenge for a 48 hour time period. The idea is really cool though and I think after you spend some time once the judging is done this application could be very useful. Nice work integrating the google maps apis!
Your feedback to our entry would be appreciated as well. GLHF!
Great idea! I know this would be super useful for university going kids who want a cheap ride home on the weekends. It's always a struggle to find rides and this could help save time.
Nice Idea. Keep it up and improve existing concept. your concept touches real life problems. :)
