iNeedCoffeeFor iPhone

Augmented wayfinder for coffee shops in Korea.

Available on the Korean iPhone AppStore as a free download, this app has been installed by nearly half of all iPhone users in Korea. The prototype for iNeedCoffee, which was originally made for the Android G1, placed in the Top 3 for KT’s 2009 Venture Awards.

We had a meeting at Zenitum one day about what kinds of point-of-interest (POI) data would be good to build a location-based augmented reality application out of. Half asleep, and having totally forgotten what the meeting was about, one of our guys said, “Shit, I need coffee.” (It was Dave — who else could it have been?)
Thus was born iNeedCoffee.
