We spend a lot of time waiting for things. From public transport, to waiting for family or firends, or even using the bathroom. 

Wouldn't it be great to have the opportunity to learn about things that you didnt even know that you wanted to learn about.

We wanted an app that could utlise these small bits of time, and gain something, just a little more. Learn about sciences? Animals, what have you.

New migrants find it hard to find affordable housing for rent as migrants are not familiar with local areas sufficiently to make an informed decision as to where best to live depending on their circumstances. We recommend ideal suburbs for their rental needs based on Income, Expenses, Gender, Age, Profession and Marital Status by comparing  with existing data as a benchmark.
