Cycling is becoming more and more popular, day by day. There are many organisations encouraging us to cycle but only a few tell us where we can leave our bike when we've arrived. The solution... BikeDrop
What it does
With BikeDrop, you can travel anywhere by bike and know that your bike will be safe while you're gone. BikeDrop brings together people who have space to store bikes with people who cycle. The app's Facebook integration and photographic previews allow its users to see what they're getting into beforehand.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
The esri/Ionic integration proved challenging as the use of Ionic ultimately complicated the application of the esri API. However, this was overcome by logical thought and clear, rational source.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
As a team, we are most proud of creating a functional, cross-platform solution in a short timeframe.
What we learned
We learned the importance of communication and teamwork in building a functional app.
We also learned the hard way not to trust the local Wi-Fi network at the Copper Box Arena
What's next for BikeDrop
Adding cycle routes to the map views and providing cycle safety bulletins for our users.
