Chillwhr (pronounced as ‘Chill Where’), is a one-stop mobile app to simplify the way people make social plans in a quick and easy process. We promise you, once you have downloaded the Chillwhr app, it will change your life completely as you no longer have to take multiple steps when getting friends together. Instead, you will get to spend more quality time with them!
The Traditional Way of Planning an Outing
Remember how we used to plan a meet up with our friends during the 1980s to the 1990s? All we did was pick up our phones at home, dial their numbers and ask them out over a call.
Social Media usage came to a rise, in an estimate, between the late 1990s and the early 2000s. Till date, a lot of us spend most of our time communicating with our peers through mobile chat apps. In the modern age of time, the first steps of planning an outing usually involves research on search engines like Google when deciding on a meeting place. Once decided on the venue, it is then followed by social sharing via the various communication channels. Some of the widely used chat applications in Singapore include Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Instagram Chat, Telegram, WeChat etc.
Encouraging Interaction with Friends in Real Life
It is common today that people are spending most of their time either on their mobile phones, tablets or laptops. While we may not be able to change that habit, we can encourage people to interact more in real life. We hope that the Chillwhr app will empower people to be “truly” social and enjoy the little things in the present moment.
Behind the Chillwhr Logo
Pronounced as ‘Chill Where’, is almost similar when we ask our friends to suggest for a place to chill.
Penguins are known as flightless birds who are commonly found in Antarctica. Their ability to adapt and live in cold climates also represents how “chill” they are.
Just like our brand, we gather you and your friends the most awesome spots to chill!
Inverted Drop-Shaped Icon
Also known as the shape of the Google Maps pin, it refers to “the marker” to represent the accurately marked location on a map.
In other words, the location of the place to chill at!
