Timeset allows users set their life goals via the ‘Bucket List’ option in the application, allowing them to instantly find others across the globe who have reached, or are aiming for the same goals, and learn from their experiences.

 

So if you’re hoping to embark on experiences like walking the Camino de Santiago, climbing Mount Everest or swimming in the Dead Sea, you can talk with a community of people who have already enjoyed that experience or are also planning to do so.

The idea behind the social travel app is that the people who have reached similar goals would be in a position to offer unique insights that would be helpful to others with similar aspirations.

According to Leo Rıza, co-founder of the app, it is not just about sharing knowledge. He wants individuals, groups and different cultures around the world to connect and influence each other. He believes that a community of users defines a virtual culture and that members can inspire each other via shared experiences.

The thinking behind the app is that by connecting a user’s goals to the experiences of multiple users, members contemplating their future invariably expand and enhance their choices, options and possibilities.
