Today we would like to give you our first impression of an application called MyPoi. This application is at the moment in an early stage but still something we think you should check out. What you can do with MyPoi is saving your special places, your points of interest by pinpointing them to a map and adding tag(s) to it. You can share this place with your friends, family and colleagues or of course use MyPoi to find this special spot yourself again.
You can download MyPoi for free and creating an account is also free. When you start the application it will show you a list of your Poi’s sorted by the date you added them. Via the Plus button you can easily add another point of interest. The available fields at the moment are a Title and a Note Box. The Note Box can be used for tagging. Below them you will find a switch to either save your point of interest public or not. MyPoi is designed to work offline too, so you can add your Poi anywhere.
Below the fields where you can enter information about your new point of interest you will find a map and below that a little icon to add pictures.
To check your points of interest you can use the list icon in the top left corner. There you will have also the option to search for other Poi’s. Just enter a keyword or #hashtag and then click search. Your hits will be shown in a list form and selecting a location will provide you more information.
If you prefer to see your Poi on a bigger screen you can also go to the website and check out your story page. Ours is for example http://www.mypoiapp.com/story/teccrab and shows the points of interest we have saved so far. Another feature is the Tag map where you can find Poi’s around you based on a tag check http://www.mypoiapp.com/map/viewpoint as an example.
As mentioned earlier, the application is still in the development stage but shows already promising features. We had the chance to meet Clint Liang, the developer of MyPoi, and to talk to him about his application. He is very excited about the feedback he got so far and is working on implementing a web based interface for users to create POI’s online. He mentioned that it would be great to get even more users involved, because the feedback from them will help to develop an application they like.

We hope you will check out MyPoi and please feel free to share your experience and leave a comment here.
If you are a fan of Tabletop games then this is a Kickstarter project you don’t want to miss. What Zach Hill from ArcanEngine, a company located in Langley Canada, is offering is a platform that allows you to create your own miniature and get it 3D printed. You will be able to pick parts from a library that is constantly updated and create your own model. If you own a 3D printer you can download your creation and print it yourself. Of course if you do not have a 3D printer you can also get it shipped to your home.
The project started on November 15th, 2013 and will end at December 16th, 2013. The goal is to get CA$ 68,000 to get this project founded. To check out their rewards and to learn more about this project please go to their Kickstarter page at
We wish everyone a great start into the new week.
My name is Zehra and for the next two months I will be working in the sales and marketing department of teccrab inc.
I thought that you certainly want to know who you’ll have to deal with for the next few weeks:
Well, as you’ve probably noticed, I have no typical Canadian name.
Maybe that’s because I was born about 8200 km away from Vancouver.
No, it’s not Italy, not France. Right!! I’m from Germany!
My family is originally from Bosnia, but I always lived in Huefingen, a small town in the southwest of Germany.
I am 20 years old and I’m studying economics. In one year I will hopefully have my bachelor’s degree.
At the moment, I want to get more experience in sales and marketing and also to brush up my English.
That is why INTERNeX, which is a partner of my university, suggested to do an internship at teccrab.
And where can I learn more than in a company, which is not only doing a great job but also working with a lot of passion?!
And now I’m sitting here in the office of teccrab, looking out the windows, enjoying the flare of Vancouver and hoping that the next two months at least be half as amazing as the last few days here in Canada.
I would be delighted if you would give some survival tips for Vancouver, ask me some questions or what I would like the most if you tell me some stories about yourself!
I’m looking forward to get many new impressions, to gain more experience and to meet a lot of cool people like you are!
