In June 2015, HLN’s The Daily Share debuted the Vacation Chasers app, an interactive companion to the original show of the same name. Vacation Chasers is a half-hour television series that captures our fascination with booking the ultimate vacation.
With the Vacation Chasers app, you can:
• Tap into the Instagram community for a gorgeously curated peek at cities we’d all love to explore.
• Check out the Top Spots and Top Eats in each city, and follow the remarkably talented Top Instagrammers in each location.
• Select your favorite stuff to create a custom itinerary for when you visit the cities yourself, using the My Plans feature.
• Read profiles of the show hosts
My contributions to this project include user experience, user interface implementation, and front-end development for the app and custom CMS. The mobile app was developed with Ionic, leveraging AngularJS and Sass, and the CMS is a node app built within a bootstrap framework.
This collaboration included resources from the Turner Experiences, Activations & Technology group and HLN’s talented The Daily Share team.
