We wanted to make a simple app to use, when we got out of class.

How it works

The android app determines the 4 corners of the view and then gets the bars and their locations from the rails backend. Then it gets the specials for each bar.

Challenges I ran into

Database migrations and working with google api

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Getting the Android app to communicate with backend

What I learned

How to build a rails api, our team, and to be successful in a hackathon

What's next for DrinkLynx

We want to make a scraper to populate the backend with foursquare or yelp. We'd like to add a list view for the app and possibly a website
