Commmon is an app that was developed with the consumer in mind. After interviewing numerous people in the NYC area who have recently moved, we identified that making a "big move", such as from a different country or from a far away state, can be very daunting and can create homesickness. Homesickness can inhibit one's ability to acclimate to their new home, so we wanted to address this issue. We found out that homesick people crave their mom's cooking, especially when sad or stressed, or they just miss their friends who share the same culture. That's how we decided to develop an app that brings people together of similar backgrounds, with home-cooked meals as the allure.
