We all wish we gave more to charity, but it can be hard to actually remember and then go through with the donation.
What it does
We keep track of your goals, then connect you to charities that you'll love. We integrate with Capital One's API to measure your progress against your goals, and make donations seamless. We keep you reminded with push notifications and social media integration.
How I built it
charico is built using the Ionic framework to work across multiple platforms. It integrates with Facebook Parse for social media and notifications and Capital One for financial reasons.
Challenges I ran into
One of our team members had never worked with Ionic or Angular before this weekend, and had to learn on the fly
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We built something that will make the world a better place
What I learned
We learned that people are really awesome when you give them a chance to be their best selves, and often that's easier than it seems
What's next for charico
We want to switch from Capital One's hackathon API to a real-life API, and then launch to as many people as possible. We'd love to see a million dollars go to charity through our app
