On signing into the app the user gets a map view from where they can see nearby points of interest or bookmarks. The user should also be able to specify the location for which they want to explore points of interest or use a keyword search for what they are interested in.
The results show on the map. The user should be able to tap the point of interest on map to see some details. The user can also see these results from a dashboard which the user can drag up and down to bring it into view.
The user can choose to bookmark the selected point of interest from the details option or from the list of results. The usual can also go into a more immersive mode when bookmark where they can leave a comment, provide a rating and/or select which friend(s) they would like to share the bookmark with.
From this home screen a user can also access a deals/savings dashboard where they can see deals/savings that are relevant to them or the point of interest they are exploring.
From here a user has can see their bookmarks in a chronological order as well as nearby bookmarks based on their current location or a location they have selected to search.
In addition to their own bookmarks, a user can see bookmarks shared by friends in their circle. A user has the option to filter these views to see only theirs.
From this view a user can also select a bookmark to share with other friends on the platform. User also has option to share bookmarks with friend not on the platform via sms, email etc
There's also the option to add a specific bookmark to bucket list (Hawaii Trip) or an area guidebook to share with a larger audience (ex: top places to see in San Francisco).
