Hopster

Mobile web app

Hopster is a personal project that stemmed from my dissatisfaction with the state of the art of Auckland Transport. At the time (early 2013) Hop Cards couldn't be topped-up online and the only way of finding where you could top-up a card was browsing through a long list of addresses. None of them had a map view or any way of finding out the closest top-up location, which made the lists' utility very limited, particularly when you were out and about.

Hopster is a simple mobile web app that will find the users' current location and center them within the three closest top-up locations. It was kept as simple as possible to make sure it would work on lower-end smartphones.

Hopster has since been made redundant, as Auckland Transport released a new website where the top-up locations have a map view.
