Homesick / social app


Homesick App was created to help people from other countries living in NYC, dealing with homesickness. This app is a place where the users can find their way to home... in another country! They can find places, in NYC, that offer things for their home country or even people in the same situation as their with whom they can talk! Most of the answers on how to deal with homesick involved looking for something that was typical in their home country, thus this app presents solutions categorized in the five senses user. The main idea is to fight the loneliness that most immigrants face in a new place.
