A friend of mine passed out after drinking among irresponsible patrons and a missing person report was filed because of it. If one of the members had an app that would geolocate the group, send message to my family via text or Dolby digital RTC, or have a product catalog that would parse wegman produce and their impact of relieving a hangover, then we would feel safer knowing that said friend was okay.
What it does
As it stands, all it does is queries products from Wegmans, displays information about said product, and determines whether or not it would help or harm someone who was hungover.
How we built it
The app is built with react native, to allow cross-platform usability and to bypass any compatibility roadblocks between android and iOS. We have user authentication support with the use of google firebase, but this was planned for additional features such as communication and geotracking.
Challenges we ran into
Sometimes react native would just crash because it doesn't want to recognize components as components. In addition, personal responsibilities cost us time to finish the application.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
Manage responsibilities among team members better. Definitely steer clear from heroics.
What's next for Chaperone
Implementing the features that we've promised
