In 1943, our grandmother had a horrible issue, she went to a career fair and did very well. When she got home from the fair, with 763 business cards. She very promptly lost all of these cards and did not give any of these companies a call back. Needless to say, she needed a way to store all of her digitally on her rotary phone. ContactCollector is our solution to her problem.


Have you ever had too many contacts at a job fair? Stacking business cards? Can't be bothered to enter LinkedIn information? The solution is simple... Just use your phone.

What it does

We made an app that allows you to scan QR codes to add contacts to your phone.

How we built it

We used Android Studio to build java into our app.

Challenges we ran into

Coming into the project, none of us knew anything about Android app dev so we had to learn that on the fly.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Our builds actually work.

What we learned

Android app development is more stack overflow searching than coding Java.
