Frustrated by the complicated process of gas money repayments, we decided to create DIVID. Because your car runs on fuel, not friendship. With a simple interface to quickly and fairly divide up gas money payments, our application makes it easy and stress-free to share your ride.
What it does
DIVID is a mobile app that uses the Mojio API to grab trip data for your vehicle, and then calculates total gas cost using local prices retrieved from a gas price database that is updated in real time. It automatically splits the cost between trip participants and sends out an email with a payment link to repay the driver.
How we built it
Mojio API, PostGreSQL database, Python, HTML/CSS, Adobe XD
Challenges we ran into
We didn't know anything and now we know some things.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made a thing.
What we learned
"This will only take me 20 minutes to implement" is how you know someone is fresh at coding.
What's next for DIVID
- Implement one-click payment buttons in-app, such as Apple Pay and Samsung Pay for smoother user experience.
- Implement fuel efficiency score calculator, using Mojio API to calculate theoretical max fuel efficiency based on route, traffic, and other factors from the Google Maps API.
