The inspiration behind Demoji (Demographics + Emoji) comes from our group's interest in working with sentimental analysis and putting a twist on it by using emojis and certain demographic info.

What it does

Demoji is a mobile app that allow individuals to submit reactions to photos from a static photo feed. Demoji users initially submit demographic information such as gender, race, income, etc. and are presented with a photo feed. The feed may include Donal Trump photos, concealed-carry propaganda, etc. and Demoji users can choose a photo to react too. The following reactions are currently supported:

  • Happiness
  • Sadness
  • Annoyed
  • Laughing
  • Joy
  • Anger

After submitting a reaction(s), Demoji users can then view the reactions that others submitted - what makes Demoji unique is that the app is completely anonymous and users can view reactions based on the same demographics they initially submitted. For example, I can compare and contrast how people who make less than $50,000/year feel about Donald Trump with people who make more than $100,000/year.

How I built it

Santos - Android Rafa - Android Frederick - Backend/DB Josh - Backend/DB

Challenges I ran into

Santos - using a 3rd party Android Spinner that went along with the Google Material Design standards...I was unable to retrieve spinner values so I went back to the native Android Spinner

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Santos - Fixing conflicts and merging my Android code with Rafa's...nothing major broke and our pieces fit

What I learned


What's next for Demoji

  • Better UI
  • Bigger, better emojis
  • VC funding
