skignz on Stag Parties

Stag parties are the best part of a wedding that a guy (and his mates) look forward too. It has the 'title' as his one night of freedom to just lose control, let loose and have a laugh with his mates.

Wherever that takes place is completely up to his best man and group of friends who he trusts his entire wedding with, so why not trust him and his friends to organise his best night of the whole event.

Most stags depending on the type of party or person, generally takes place abroad or in another city. Somewhere that is a bit different and new to everyone. However the problem with that is that no-one knows where to go. 

Knowing where the best places are to go and the location of them makes the night more enjoyable to save everyone from wondering around getting lost and spending a lot of time in unusual places and maybe with some unusual people.

Plus who knows who you may bump into or what situations you may get yourself into after having, as we all know, quite a lot of drinks. Now people think they will go to a few bars, have a good time and then maybe as the night goes on end up in a strip club to give the groom a good end to his night. 

However we have all seen this get planned before and never go to plan. What film have we seen this on … The Hangover! 

The Hangover, parts 1 and 2, show two of the boys getting married and going on their stag do. Now all the plans they have such as no strip bars and just a few drinks never go to plan. 

Part One: Shows how the boys all end up lost and hungover in Las Vegas having got themselves into a lot of trouble and losing their main man, the groom somewhere in Las Vegas and they have no idea! 

Part Two: Shows Stuart getting married in Thailand and after the mess of the first stag do, he just wants a relaxing night on the beach then an early night in bed. 

This doesn’t happen. Yet again the boys end up somewhere random, very hungover in a new place, in a lot of trouble and losing the bride's brother somewhere in a new unknown city to them. 

Now as funny as these films are for us to watch, we know ourselves we would not like it if this happened to us on our stag parties. The panic would be uncontrollable and not to mention what the bride would be thinking … 

skignz can help to prevent all of these issues from happening – it is your very own personal tracker. skignz can make your night relaxed, safe and still just as enjoyable as you had already planned. (If you would like to know more about skignz then please go to the website or read more on the rest of the blogs). 

Now how can skignz help you to have the best yet organised and safe stag party in 3 simple steps ...

1. Prior to your stag party, you can plan which bars you would like to attend and then pre-place a skignz above the location so that when you get there it is easily accessible. Just open the app on your phone, scan the environment and it will direct you exactly to where your skignz and first bar is! (You can then do this for the rest of the night with the other places you have planned to go to). 

2. Arriving at the desired location, it can help you to find your accommodation straight away. To save you the hassle pre-place a skignz before you go then when you arrive no time is wasted trying to find where you need to be, you can be straight out on the drink starting to enjoy your stag party. 

3. You can place a skignz above yourself. So if you were to end up like a scene out of the hangover (let’s hope not), you would easily be able to locate were the others are as a skignz would pop up on the app and tell you where your friend is and vice versa. Now we know we always have the majorly drunk one and the sensible one on stag parties and someone always generally tends to wander off, so knowing you can easily find them if they are not answering their phone is a great thing! 

Plus a little something for the brides … you can use this technology as the guys do above on your own Hen night. But also you can keep an eye on 'Promiscuis Kassy', 'Pornstar Katy' or even 'Frigid Brenda'. 

However to end on a serious note, stag parties are meant to be crazy and all about having fun, but still make sure your safe. This doesn't have to be in the most serious way as skignz is a small safety icon that no one can see publicly only virtually. 

There has been a lot of stories in the news about people getting lost on stag parties and ending up in bad situations so make sure that the worst thing to happen to you is that you have a very very bad regrettable hangover the next day, but you are still somewhere safe and sound!

Using skignz at a height

You know, in my life I haven't done much travelling. As many families did when they were younger I never went on many vacations. I’m not too sure why that was, maybe as my family didn't like travelling, flying or even holidays themselves; I'm just not sure

However I did go to a few places as I started to grow up. They were short vacations for a day or two when I went with either school or college or now even friends, and they were very good times. 

1WTC & The Empire State Building, New York, US Empire State  / 
World Financial Centre, Shanghai, China 

A lot of my trips included sightseeing as it was partly education trips I went on, and although a lot of sightseeing was previously planned to do alongside having a good time, it never fully got carried out when we arrived to the destination. I will give you an example of one time.

 "I went on a vacation with secondary school when I was in year 10. We were going to Disneyland Paris. Now imagine being me and not having been on any vacations when I was younger, I was extremely excited about this trip. One of my first trips was to Disneyland Paris! It was for three days and two nights as I remember. Now I did not have a clue where I was going. I just followed the instructions of the teachers and listened to my friends as one or two of them had been there before. 
Disneyland Paris, France

This did not bother me too much on the way there as we went by Eurostar and that was an enjoyable journey. However, when we got there we had to find our hotel. That was a struggle. Where we were staying was a lot of different hotels in one place and they were all differently themed. We were looking for a cowboy themed one and it was extremely hard to find as there was so many and we spent quite a while looking for it. All we wanted to do was get unpacked and go explore for a while before catching up on some sleep. 

Once we had finally managed to find our room we settled in till the next day. For the two days we were there we had planned to go to a business event on one of the days and spend a day in the adventure park itself. Finding the business event was easy for us as we just got a bus directly there. However when it came to finding and getting to the adventure park that was a different story! Finding our way there took us a small while as we were unsure what bus to get and which direction to head in. Once we had figured that struggle out we arrived at the park, and it was huge! 

Eiffel Tower, Paris, France
There was so much to see and so many rides to go on. Now we were given a map but that was so hard to use. We spent a lot of the time looking where we needed to be heading and where we wanted to go. 

Many times we were going back over on ourselves which was no fun because we just wanted to go and see everything! Now we did see a majority of the sights and it was a really great time, however they could have done with something more easily to understand than a map of the place. Not everyone knows how to use them. 

I definitely want to go back and I will one day and even take my family members, but I will be sure to plan our trip ahead so that we know where we are going and don't waste too much time wandering about. However saying that it was one of the best vacations of my life still to this day! I can’t stop telling anyone who asks me just how good it is! I suggest you try it."

Royal Clock Tower, Mecca, Saudi Arabia
Now you're probably wondering why I am telling you about my own story. Well that is because at that time I needed something simple to help me navigate around an unfamiliar and strange place. 

As my journey involved travelling through unknown places (to me anyway) and even though I didn't have any idea where I was going, I now know that the group leaders I was with at the time, didn't either! 

Blind Navigation based upon traditional maps and plenty of hope, hope that we would eventually arrive at our chosen destination.
Burj-Khalifa, Dubai, UAE

I would like you to understand and put yourselves in my shoes. Even though you have probably already been in my shoes and will be most of the time when you go travelling because it is very hard to find your way about and go sight-seeing, you still require some different kind of help when you're sightseeing.

That’s when I now tell you about skignz. Just imagine if I had skignz when I went sightseeing in Paris, I would have been able to see what I wanted to without getting lost and wasting time. 

Now, I know most of you know about skignz but I guess a lot of you may not use it to your full potential as you may not fully understand it. skignz does have short videos on our YouTube Channel for you to take a look at and see how great it really is. skignz is your sightseeing essential tool. 

Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney, Australia
You should use this on every trip you go on, yet you don't need to carry anything more that what you normally take with you. Its tucked away on your smartphone for when and wherever you need it, in return it will provide you with relevant content at that point you require it without going searching for it, either physically or through a search engine on your device!

It will make your time much more relaxing and enjoyable. I will give you links at the end of this post so that you can go read and have a see for yourself so that you fully understand it.

Now it’s not just about going round on trips and sightseeing. There is some of the best and tallest buildings to go to in the world that provide great sightseeing experience. 

Just naming a few you will recognise: The Burj Khalifa – Dubai, The Canton Tower – China, The London Eye – London, The Jin Mao Tower – Shanghai, The Willis Tower – Chicago and The Eiffel Tower – Paris. Now when you get to the top of these they will provide some sort of equipment that will allow you to extend your whole viewing experience.

They just keep getting taller, but all provide a viewing area for the public!
However what they don't have and would be exceptionally useful is skignz. When you get to the top it would be useful to see where each place is and what it is. skignz can provide you with the knowing of the whereabouts each place is located and information on it while you are there. 

skignz elevates (pardon the pun) your sightseeing experience to another level making it more enjoyable as you are on this adventure. It allows you to interact on a more personal level with the place you are visiting.

Views from the Top of The EDF Energy London Eye, UK
Lets take The EDF Energy - London Eye for an example. 

The EDF Energy London Eye is a massive tourist attraction that takes you so high you can see a whole lot of London. 

When you are in your 'little pod' you are provided with a 'mini Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 device' which is a 360 guide, however due to 'screen glare' you cannot read the screen properly and they were pretty much ignored by all on board in favour of their smart phones and portable devices such as tablets, cameras etc...! If only they had skignz hey!

The fixed position tablet provides the user with multi lingual features of key information on landmarks that can be seen from The EDF Energy London Eye. Even though it gives you multi-dimensional views of the sights of the capital and 24 hours filming, you cannot interact with the device as you could with skignz. 

If you are not totally confused at this point, additionally provided (for an additional fee) is a paper guide as shown in the below image!

If you had skignz up there you could see where each place is and interact with information of that place. It would tell you how far away it is, directions to get there and give you information on the place, opening times and more, everything you would want to know about sights on your sightseeing experience.
Petronas Towers Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

skignz is all about giving a person the best experience on their travels no matter where you go and improving 
your sightseeing experience. 

Visiting some of the biggest and tallest towers in the world to do sightseeing you need the right equipment handy to use for when you get up there. 

After all it isn't just about taking photographs you want to get to know about each place for when you wish to visit there while you are on your travels. 

Using skignz at a height is a thing of the future. skignz will be part of the future and watching this space a lot of companies will be using skignz as it will improve everyone’s experience. No matter where you are or where you go, you can use skignz! It is always there with you as it is on your mobile device. You can take it wherever you wish. 

Marina Bay, Singapore
So if you need to get to the next place on your trip or to find out some information, just get your phone out and let skignz do the work for you! 

After all who wants to be searching around for ages on their trips looking where to go and trying to understand maps? 

They are not the easiest thing in the world to use and I am not ashamed to say, that to this day I do not fully understand how to read a map. 

skignz has provided me with a whole new experience for when I go on my 'getaways' with family and friends.

View across the Marina Bay from Sands Hotel 
We would like you to experience skignz at a height. So why not give it a go on your next adventure. Whether you are visiting one of the tallest towers in the world or even going on a sightseeing expedition just like I did when I went to Disneyland Paris. 

Like I said previously I could have done with having skignz around then and why no one invented it at the time is beyond me, however now it is available for you to use.

So please don't just download it and leave it there. You will most likely be going somewhere this summer, even if it is just for a local small vacation and to a place you haven't been before, skignz will assist you and make your overall experience an enjoyable time. 

I know myself that if I go away this year somewhere I will be using it to go sightseeing from a height, and I will be using skignz as it will provide me with all the information I need right there on my own mobile device.

Have you ever got lost at a festival or concert?

The summer is rapidly approaching, the clocks have 'jumped forward' and we are now officially into 'British Summer Time' 2014.

The Famous Glastonbury Festival during the summer of 2013
You will hear the songs that define this year specifically for you, in your future memories. Years to come from now, you will hear a song/tune that will take you back to a specific time and place during the summer of 2014!

Many of you will get these memories from attending Festivals, Concerts, Live Events....

Let us set the scene....

You go to a festival this year and you have arrived after what for most is a long journey in a packed up the car/camper. You are shepherded into a farmers field to park your vehicle amongst the tens of thousands of others. 

Parking in farmers fields

Then comes the carrying of all of your kit, to where you pitch your tent or if your lucky enough a Yurt!

Or a Yurt? They all look the same!
Sea of tents! Which one is mine?
Skipping forward past putting up the tent and getting yourself settled in you grab a drink and go for a look around, find out what's going on and where?

You find a a stage with a artist playing you like and you settle in, relax with a drink to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the music.

Sound perfect? This to most is the usual journey each of the millions of people will make this summer to attend the wonderful festivals on offer.

Now you have sat and enjoyed this artist for a while and you fancy another drink or how about something to eat? 

Enjoying the music, the surroundings and the ambience!
Where are the refreshment stands? In fact where are the toilets as you don't fancy making two trips! As with the majority of people, finding the refreshments and toilets is one thing! But finding your way back to where your friends are! Now thats a whole new level of stress and hassle!

Going through your mind is no doubt a few or all of the following:

- How will you get back to where you where? 

- How do you find your friend(s)? The proverbial 'needle in a haystack'! 

Unless your friends are 9ft tall and everybody else is under 5ft tall, you are going to struggle! Add in the feeling you get after a couple of drinks and your orienteering skills are not the sharpest they have ever been!

Is there a solution? Other than carrying around a massive sign or a flag saying 'I am here!' 

What happens if everybody does the same thing, you are all right back to where you started, looking for a 'Needle in a Haystack' springs to mind.

The solutions has arrived and does not require you to carry anything more than what you walk around with in your pocket everyday - a smartphone or tablet.

Lets go back to the point where you're stood looking for the refreshments stand and toilets. Now open up your smartphone/tablet and click on the skignz App! 

Now 'Pan' your phone around as if you were videoing the crowd!

skignz: Increasing & Enghancing the Environment around you!
As you do this and as if by magic, little 'virtual signs' will appear above the toilets and the refreshment stand. Pan further to see who's coming on stage next? Use the pinch on your phone to Zoom in and out on each skign, press the skign on your screen, a short press activates some relevant content, a longer press reveals how far away that actual skign is located!

How about downloading a discounted album of the artist on stage right in that moment, press the 'album cover skign' above the stage and in one or two quick clicks and its delivered to your device - there and then!

So back to your little mission to get a drink and something to eat, visit the toilet while you are there. 

You have used skignz to find each of these locations. 

This type of skignz can been provided by the festivals producers or their sponsors to help you find your way around the festival and make your life easier, while enhancing the whole experience.

Where are my friends? Its like trying to find a 'Needle in a Haystack!'.
Now you have been to the toilet, bought your food and drink and you want to find your friends? 

This is where skignz really becomes your best buddy! 

Hold up the phone again and pan across the crowd and you will see 'skignz' above each of your friends heads! You will only see theres because like with other social media channels you are only linked to people you know or want linked to you!

Now if they have a great big skignz above their head - is that not the easiest way to find them EVER? Theirs and your personal skignz will have a picture of you, your name and a little comment - like a 'Tweet' or 'Facebook status update' on their skignz!

Not only can I find my friends, but also each one is personalised to them!

We at skignz though want to make finding ANYTHING! Easier...! 

So we have included in the free to download App, the ability to 'drop a skignz or arrow' over your car (remember the thing you arrived in and parked in a sea of cars in a farmers field a few hours earlier - you will need that to get home!).

Also your FREE account will let you drop another one over your tent/yurt etc... (remember a few hours ago, after parking the car and carrying your backpack and tent, the thing you then spent an hour trying to build that only has 3 poles and a few pieces of canvas, but its your 'home' for the next few days!).

So now, not only do you know where you parked (ready for quick exit to beat the traffic), where your tent is? (so you can find it, in the middle of the night amongst the ocean of other temporary canvas structures) where the toilets showers and whose playing on what stage and at what time... download their music at offer price, right to you handset, even where the charging points are so your phone does not go dead! 

How much of an improved festival experience is that?

Festivals, Concerts and Live events are the easiest place in the world to get lost & lose your friends!
You dont have to worry about getting lost, finding anywhere specific, losing your friends? skignz is not only helpful, insightful and interactive, is also great as a safety device. 

Getting lost is a horrible feeling, losing your friends and wandering around aimlessly for hours is no fun, after all you came with your mates to have a good time - mostly together, because an experience shared, is so much more than one you experience on your own!

So why not download the skignz app if you are going to a festival, concert or other live event? Even if the venue has not heard about skignz or got their event environment skignzed up! 

Why only see this?
Get your copy of skignz now:

You can do it yourselves between you and your friends! even if you only use it to find each other when you get lost, find your tent or car! 

Surely thats gotta be worth 10 secs of your time download a simple little app that could be the coolest thing on your phone this summer! It certainly will be for those people when they get lost and they will!

Enjoy this summer, enjoy the festivals, concerts and other live events, but enjoy it more, knowing you have a little app on your phone that can help you navigate around a strange place, find your friends and find your transport home, cos if you don't find that, you won't get to go to anymore events this summer!
When you can see & experience this...!

Bring on the summer of 2014 - When you hear the new Calvin Harris song 'Summer' and you and your friends have all downloaded skignz to see what its like?

We are sure from now on you will remember the summer of 2014 as the 1st year that you used skignz!

skignz are changing University Campuses forever!

University campuses are changing every day. With the constant updates in technology it is essential that Universities make sure they adapt to that change to meet every need of their students and provide them with the best experience and education available. 

skignz can help speed up that change, as it can provide all services that a student needs for when they are at University and even beyond the campus. I will explain how skignz can help in more detail below.

Teesside University Main Campus
Let me just start off with informing you about the work that skignz has currently provided for Teesside University by working with them to adapt to the changing needs of the University campus and students themselves. skignz is a new way for students to navigate around campus. It is a free app that everyone can download to their mobile devices. 

skignz provides students with a lot less worry for when they arrive at Teesside University. Prior to coming they will download the app and ensure that everything is set up for when they arrive. To find where they need to be on campus they can simply navigate through loading up skignz on their phone and scanning the campus environment to see where the building is they need to locate. 

Teesside University Enhanced by skignz
It simply is a sign in the sky. Teesside University were the first to use skignz and have ensured that it is a huge benefit for everyone to the University; staff, students and visitors, providing them with the simplicity of being reassured when on the campus. 

No need to try and understand them maps anymore! Students can download the app as soon as they get the offer letter from their university.

Checkout this short video for you to see how skignz works:
Don't just take our word for it, here a few students tell us what they think about skignz being on the Teesside University Campus:

Abigail Allick - 2nd Year Degree Student
“I’m not very good at navigating myself around, especially if I don’t know the area”

“I find the app a lot more easier, like getting myself around Uni and different places where I actually am”
Timi Odeyemi – MA Student

“If you think about the fact that a lot of students come here relatively clueless, and you want to know where buildings are, you want to know what exactly is going on”
“To meet and discover, wow, this is being set up right here. It just sort of gave that potential, made it feel real, that certain things can be developed”

“It’s essentially like a visual google or something of the sort”
As you can see from above, students who have experienced skignz already on campus have said how much it really helps for people attending University.

“It’s essentially like a visual google or something of the sort”

Freshers at Teesside University
skignz has provided a new exciting, interesting and essential service to current and new students, including everyone at Teesside University. It is new technology developed and Teesside University have jumped right on board of taking advantage to be the first to use this, and they have done right to do so! The difference it has already made is fantastic.
So what are the benefits of skignz?
skignz has many benefits to what it provides. I could talk about them all and go into much detail; the possibilities of where it could go and what it could do are vast.

skignz provides a new way for 'EVERYONE' to navigate about. It doesn’t just have a certain place it can be used or a certain audience that can use it, it is for everyone. You no longer need to be lost. You no longer need to feel alone. You can now prepare and know where you are at all times. Plus it is not boring like looking and trying to read or understand a map. It is simply straight there on your device. It is always with you wherever you are. No need to go in search of a map or some form of location help.
Whats in it for you? The social side of skignz!
And there's more ... skignz is not just for navigating. It has a whole social side to it beyond University campus. It is the social element of taking skignz into other parts of your life. 

You can use it when you go shopping. Say you fancied going shopping in a new place you hadn’t been before, you can set up skignz before you go and easily locate the shops and where you need to be when you arrive. 

It saves you time from looking around and wasting valuable time what can be used to shop. You can find your car in a very busy car park. Most of us forget from time to time where we have parked, so simply set up a skignz above your car for when you having finished where you need to be and find where you have parked you will be able to see it through skignz on your mobile device. It can also be used when you are at concerts or festivals with your friends. 

Getting lost from your friends or group is very easy: going to the bar or to the toilet - how will you be sure to find them again in that huge crowd? Well, before you go to the festival you and your friends can each download skignz and set it up before you head off to your festival. Therefore when you arrive you will each already have skignz set up, so if you go to the bar and lose your friends, just load up skignz on your mobile, scan the crowd and there you will see a little sign just above your friend's head informing you of where they are.

Just like Timi Odeyemi – MA Student stated:
“Imagine going to somewhere like London or Tokyo and trying to meet someone or find jobs or anything. You could try to find bars, you could try to, well, meet people socially, that kind of thing. So, to me, I see the possibilities of this particular app to be, like, endless. It could be the next big thing, in my opinion”

skignz really is the next big thing. It has a lot of benefits for people who use it and can be used in any way you wish.
So what does skignz mean to student experience?

It provides new students who are coming to University a way to feel comforted and reassured that they are going to know where they are going when they arrive on campus. Everything will already be set up for them putting them at ease and giving them time to get used to the app. It is also available for them to download before they come to University prior to them receiving the offer letter.
TU Freshers understanding skignz!
They can also find it to find new friends. Such as students who may not be very good at making new friends, they can use it in a social way to talk to new people. They could set up a skignz for themselves to inform people that they are new, what course they are on or if anyone else is doing the same, going to the same lesson as them and so on. 

It provides a new way for them to interact with other students if they do not feel they are best at doing that.
It can help foreign students also who have mentioned to us that when they arrive on campus they are generally alone. This way they will be able to find each other and a new way to make friends who they feel comfortable with. It is not always easy for foreign students to make new friends as they have said before to the university.

Professor Eileen Martin (Deputy Vice Chancellor)
“It’s a really important tool when students first arrive on campus because it’s an easy navigation, as they are used to using mobile technologies. This is a really good addition”

As you can see above, Professor Eileen Martin of Teesside University stated that it is an important tool for when students first arrive on University campus, providing them with easy navigation to where they need to be.

Party Time with skignz at TU Students Union
skignz also provides students with excitement when they come to University. They can use skignz not only to find new friends but for nights out or if they wanted to interact with others to have some fun. 

It provides value in their learning ability as it will put them at ease to find other students who they can relate to and also to have some friends and fun for the nights out in the Student Union and around town. 

For example: if they were having a house party for new students then they could place a skignz above their house to let people know that’s where the party is or even to try a few places with new friends. If they were to go for food and a few drinks they could each set up skignz on their phone, plan out where they wish to go and then each find where they need to be.

Understanding skignz on Campus
It is a new town for some students arriving. They need to feel at home where they are and that they are well looked after by the University.
Professor Eileen Martin (Deputy Vice Chancellor)

“I guess it adds a USP (unique selling proposition/point). It brings some fun and excitement into the student experience as well”

“I think it’s a really exciting and also very innovative and creative development. And I think we’re only just starting to understand the potential and the very different ways in which we can use it, both across the social world of the student but also actually in terms of their learning as well”

skignz really is the new best piece of technology that University campuses can take on. It will provide a whole new outlook to students on University campus and improve their life in social and learning aspects. It will give the University a huge boost in providing good technology and keeping up to date in all the advancements. skignz can be used in any way anyone wishes. To sum it all up below is a short video for you to see.

skignz in a Nutshell -

Like Timi Odeyemi – MA Student says: It can be or will be…                “…the next big thing”

Do you like to view different sceneries, different places or travel the world? If you do then skignz is definitely for you!

There are many amazing sights to see in the world in many different destinations. Some are easy to find as they are very popular and not located too far away. But what about those that are not located near, and are situated in a place that you have never been to before? 
You don’t really want to spend all your time looking for sights to see and missing out on other stuff you could be doing.
I go back a few years, when I was in college, I got the chance to go to Disneyland Paris. It was an exciting time as I had never been there before. I had never really travelled before so this was my first big place to travel to. I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived there let alone know what I was going to be doing in a place as big as Disneyland.

When I arrived I didn’t know my way around. I had to go by signs and use a map to see where each part of it was and where I wanted to be without getting lost. Maps are a mess on half the time, I barely understand them now let alone back then. 
Eventually I would find my way to each part of Disneyland that I wanted to reach but it was not easy for me. I wished they’d had a different way that would have enabled me to find my way around without taking ages and causing me mass confusion.

What they needed was skignz. skignz replaces maps and can help you prepare before you set off on your travels, therefore you can plan what you want to see, where it is and how you are going to get there when you arrive. You simply find your destination on a map through skignz; place a skign above where you want to be, then plan your directions of how you’re going to get there when you arrive. 

You can then view this through your mobile or tablet device and only you or whoever else you wish can see this skign.

It will save you a lot of time when you arrive and you will be able to easily find where you want to be without a mess on. No more wasting time; you will be able to see many other sights and have a look around whilst you are there.


skignz can be used for anywhere that you wish to travel too. It is free to download and whilst using it you will also have a lot of fun along the way.

So, now make sure before you set off on your travels, whether it may be a short or long distance, you plan ahead using skignz and save yourself time, hassle and confusion!

Available to download from Google Play and ITunes.
