As homeschoolers, our house has more bookshelves than family members. Most of these books, read once, gather dust on the shelves. Libraries sometimes need more copies of specific books or movies.
What it does
Our app gives frequent library members to see a list of books that the library want, and lets them notify the library that they have a copy and are willing to donate it.
Our app has two sides:
- For the librarian - can upload book titles
- For the users - can mark wether they have the book
How we built it
Since we are learning Java, and are familiar with C#, we used Xamarin, an application that lets you create cross-platform apps in C#.
Challenges we ran into
Trying to populate the table and trying to upload the books to a database.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of actually coding the application.
What we learned
We learned how to work with and collaborate with friends as well as learning how to populate a table automatically.
What's next for Book-A-Nate
We are going to fix any bugs, add new features, and add the users side of the app. AND most importantly, make the UI more user-friendly
