The power of Clover API.

What it does

The application takes advantage of the location services provided by your phone and the powerful Clover API to notify you about shops/retail/restaurants that are in your vicinity and offer discounted items. The great thing is it does all of this in the background based on your preferences!

How we built it

Our work consisted of two main parts. Mobile app and REST API. Rest API is built using Nodejs and MongoDB. Mobile app for DealOd is built with React Native which is recent project by Facebook for building mobile applications using Javascript.

Challenges we ran into

Initially we tried building the app with Esris' API but figured it would be a bit of an overkill due to it's extensiveness. We decided to set up a small database of our own with only the basic data needed to store the relevant data.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We built the app to be very independent and rely mostly on Clovers' API and their customers.

What we learned

It is really difficult to stay focused 20h with a hangover...

What's next for DealOd

Profit!
