'Kickit' is a new app that is designed to help college students make spontaneous plans with others. While there are plenty of apps that help students connect, it can be easy for users to get bogged down in the planning process. This app is designed to facilitate more effortless planning with those who are interested in the same kinds of activities.

Kickit was created by two students at the University of Texas at Austin named Eric Ngo and Ashar Malik. The app allows users to share when they are available and what kinds of activities they are up for. Users can then send invitations inviting others to join them in various activities. The app can be used among friends or among strangers looking to make new connections on campus. As Ngo explains, the app is designed to act as "a tool where people can effortlessly and easily look for something to do with other people who want to do the same thing."

Unlike other apps, Kickit helps college students make immediate connections with like-minded individuals.
