What it does
Allows users to wireless exchange a variety of contact information including Facebook, Twitter, and Social Media, as well business profile information like LinkedIn at once.
How we built it
We utilized Ionic and its libraries to program the app.
Challenges we ran into
Ionic gave us a lot of issues when trying do version control with git. Moreover, Ionic threw some error that required us to spend hours debugging our program.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Some accomplishments are that we created a nice interface and partially got NFC data transfer working.
What we learned
We learned how to develop an online database and exchange data. Moreover, we learned how to develop a clean mobile app layout, as well as fix various issues Ionic poses.
What's next for cardExchange
We want to finish up the data exchange using NFC, as well as give users more flexibility in editing their profiles and saving other peoples' contact information.
