"A Better Way To Use Google Maps."

About Hop

Hop is a class project at Kendall College of Art and Design. Students were tasked to create a destination

app that combines way-finding, social media, branding and advertising all on Google maps.

The app started life with the name "dotPlace" and eventually was renamed "Hop".

Using multiple Apps like Facebook, Maps and a web browser to plan, execute or attend an event is cumbersome at best. With HOP, consumers can find their destination, plan a "jaunt" and communicate "real time" with their excursion friends and family all within Google Maps. Because life is a destination:
Search · Event Planning · Ratings · Discounts
Specials · Way-finding · Chat · Photo Share

Make your destination with the "Venue Administration App.".., A powerful tool for enhancing your presence on Google Maps. It gives business owners complete control over their brand and advertising all through the Google Map search experience. Analytics allows the user to track traffic, sales and clicks and correlate them with their branding and advertising campaigns:
Special Map Icon · Enhanced Pop-Up Window
Real Time Updates for Events/Specials · Analytics
