Brocolle is an application for iPhone. The target audience of the app is USA students. For the purpose of security and in order to restrict the access for non-college users, only owners of emails with university .edu domains may sign up. Currently, in order to rent an apartment, get a job, buy or sell different stuff or find an event a student must go to different platforms, areas, applications to acquire each thing separately. Brocolle app combines all basic student needs in one easy-to-use application. Depending on the category, all advertisements presented in the app are shown in two modes: map and listing view. Brocolle exploits the location services facility on the user’s mobile device to suggest the most relevant content (events nearby, subleasing proposals, things to buy) that is restricted by the boundaries of the university area. Students may only see and publish the ads within their campus. Such approach helps to protect students from fraud and theft.
