Discover Roam: The Revolutionary Flight Deals App that Could Save You Up to 83% on Your Next Trip!

Life update: I’ve been working on a passion project in my nights and weekends which is a flight deals app; would love for you to give it a try! Some deals are amazing, e.g. 83% off round trip Newark – Nashville for $24 (normally $145).

It’s called Roam and is unique in 3 ways:
1. You don’t have to enter specific dates. Search any day that has the best deals, or specify certain days of the week such as weekend trips.
2. Our algorithm searches daily for your trip (4,000+ flights/day across 12 months of results)
3. Add custom filters for flight deals you care about (no alerts for flights you would never book)

Let me know if you have any questions!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that a friend and I created a flight deals iPhone app that launched a few weeks after the pandemic started (yes, we did not foresee that in our planning lol). We eventually had to shut it down because of cost and flight API issues.
Thankfully, an email service is very affordable to run, and I’m using a new flight API!

This is the final hobby project I’ve created during my two weeks off before starting the new job. Won’t have much time for them soon, but they’ve been energizing to work on 🤓
