Me and my co-workers always have last minute plans to go out to eat, but its always a mess trying to find somewhere to eat without pre-planning. I believe BrunchOut solved this use-case since it allows map location and interactivity with the users using the service.
What it does
BrunchOut lets users post places to recommend to go out to brunch to their co-workers. it allows to search the location of the place and add a quick description on why you and your co-workers should go there to eat.
How I built it
I used the Ionic Framework to build this hybrid app. Some technologies that I used include AngularJS, Google Maps API, MongoDBand Cordova to wrap in a native screen (iOS)
Challenges I ran into
This was my first time building a mongoDB backend, and it was a great learning experience for me since I am mostly a front end person.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learning Google Maps API, and MongoDB
What I learned
How to incorporate APIs and their services to a product
What's next for BrunchOut
I would like to finish this project so me and my co-workers could use it. Some features that I have in mind are SMS when there are X amount of votes, and emails about upcoming brunches.
