An android app to that gives random,always fun, and somtimes useful advice.


I usually deal with a lot of general anxiety and I don't know what to do, so I figured I would make an app that would give me advice that's either useful or so funny that I'd stop being anxious.

What it does

Gives random advice at the press of a button!

How we built it

I built it using Android Studio, the public Advice Slip API, and the HTTP Request Library from CodePath.

Challenges we ran into

I had trouble creating a consistent layout because the advice would normally be of different length.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

This was my first time building an android app without a tutorial!

What we learned

I learned the differences between the types of layouts and deepened my understanding of HTTP Request and parsing JSON.

What's next for Advise Me!

  1. Allow user to save their favorite advice.
  2. Use computer vision to give advice on object
