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
