When meeting someone for the first time, it's always a hassle to exchange emails and usernames on various social media sites. We wanted to turn this process into a quick, simple action.
What it does
Allows users to share whatever social media information they want with others with a single touch. Users enter in their usernames/emails, and a QR code is generated with the information they want to share. Users can then simultaneously scan QR codes with two phones, which shares the selected information between the two phones. Flexible to suit any situation.
How we built it
Build entirely in React Native, currently deployed in Expo.
Challenges we ran into
Calling APIs and authenticating with social media sites was difficult. Full use of OAuth 2.0 would be necessary to automate connecting social media accounts.
What's next for Contact
Integration with OAuth 2.0 protocol, as well as use of new communications technologies such as Near Field Communication.
