This android application, that is supplemented by a web application, allows the user to connect with events occurring in approximately 70 mile radius of their location. Whether it is a pickup ultimate frisbee game, a party right around the block, or a lecture by a technological genius, Beacon allows you to discover events happening close to you that you may have never heard about by allowing you to view posted events by other people and by allowing you to send out "Beacons" of your own. This app is a map-oriented application powered by the Google maps API and the Parse API. It allows you to view various "Beacons" as well get directions to the individual events.
