Jaunt Map Pin

Everyone loves a sob story of how they got to where they are today. For once we aren't one of those! Thank god I hear you say?

The concept for Jaunt was born back in May 2016 when 3 friends and I went on an epic road trip 6500 miles across America. For the previous two years I was stuck in an IT Manager position in a local company with little to no job satisfaction.

So this is how Jaunt all began:

The Story

While travelling across America we wanted an app that would allow us to track where we had been and where we were off to next and show it to the people back home. It would have been good for us to upload the pictures and blogs from each place also. Having looked for some time without much success we gave up.

It wasn't until we got home that the idea of starting our own app hit us. With that in mind we did further research and to our amazement there wasn't an app out there already that did what we wanted.

This is when Jaunt was born.
