Too much math and thinking when trying to split a bill. Would be nice to easily split things the way you want. For example, the table orders a pitcher but 1 person drinks 3/4 of it and one person has the rest. He will be able to select to pay 75% of the pitcher.
What it does
User takes a photo of the receipt/bill and the items are parsed into Firebase. Everyone joins the 'room' and starts selecting the items they wish to pay for and how to split items.
How I built it
Android Studio, Algorithmia, Firebase
Challenges I ran into
Linking phones and having live updates show up on each phone
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learning new technologies like Firebase and it is the first time we built an app that has live dynamic updates.
What I learned
Firebase, networking phones so they connect to each other through a server
What's next for BillSplit
More functionality - saving IOUs, having friends spot each other via Paypal or Venmo
