Case Study 4 of 5

Flatbot — Automatically sniping the best places to live for renters, and flatmates around New Zealand.

Designed and built a Facebook Messenger chatbot with some friends that would perform auction sniping on home rental listings. We did it to help friends who were spending hours every day trawling through sites to find a place to live. Peaked at a hundred something users on Messenger, but ended up neglected as we explored other pursuits and projects. Discontinued mid 2019.
