Take your own pictures
Or caption old ones
I was using Instagram recently and it took me forever to think of a caption worthy enough to label the incredible moments I experience. I decided to create an app to save myself time by simulating my great humor and intelligence to come up with unforgetful captions.
What it does
Analyzes an image, then based on the results of the analysis it comes up with a cool quote and hashtag for it.
How we built it
The front-end design was built in Swift to take in an image taken from the camera or photo library. We then used Microsofts Computer Vision API to give us a description of the image, then we touched up the description.
Challenges we ran into
Figuring out how to get a response from the Computer Vision API Finding the directory where images are saved Saving images taken using the camera
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Coming up with this revolutionary and time-saving idea
What we learned
How Alamofire and SwiftyJSON work under the hood How to manage files on a phone To never forget about UX
What's next for CaptionIt
Getting onto devices to begin giving hilarious and memorable captions to all
