How I built it
I used Ionic to build for all the platforms. Firebase was used for authentication with the Facebook Login Product, realtime cloud database, cloud messaging and many more. I also used a couple of Google API's such as Maps, Places for location geo-coding, maps, location tracker and search for nearby Places
Challenges I ran into
Integrating realtime location tracking with Google Maps and using the native geolocation plugin to watch user position
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to build the app in few weeks alone and bring people together
What I learned
How to use Firebase, Facebook Login Product, Google Maps API and others
What's next for CrowdLife
Add location-messaging feature and more socialization features
