Echo is the smart phone application that allows its users to experience the city, stress free. The focus of the app is to make the travel experience and social aspects of city life easier to discover and share with others. When a user participates in a positive event, their voice is echoed throughout the city, allowing for more optimistic experiences to occur.
Well-being encompasses how we think about and experience our lives. In communities with higher well-being, we have found that people live longer, happier lives, and business and local economies flourish. Echo gathers people from a variety of backgrounds, to assemble and interact with one another in a public setting. Echo encourages residents to explore their city, bringing people together to give back to their community. This app has the high potential to grow and strengthen the community’s infrastructure; more members can be involved in temporary/pop-up events and provide their feedback.

The community page is to allow users to post about their opinion on events currently happening. This page is to share, express, and promote events.
