Have you ever had a negative experience at the bank? Spent more time than you should have looking up a term on your bank statement? Felt anxiety over asking a banker for help? FīnVine is here for your everyday banking needs! Born from college students’ own experiences navigating banks alone for the very first time, FīnVine is here to simplify banking and increase knowledge of financial necessities.
What it does
Our project allows you to log in using your existing bank account, and gain access to key information, such as an "Urban Dictionary" for financial language, real-time banking updates, monthly and annual spending overviews, and much more.
How I built it
My team and I coded our app using Swift on xcode, and also built an advanced version of it on Figma to show what it will look like after more development.
Challenges I ran into
This was our first time using Swift and xcode, so a lot of the difficulties we had were with using a new language and navigating the challenges that came with it for the code that we wanted to write.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Coding a working prototype of an app that has the possibility of actually being able to be implemented and widely used because of the practicality and ease of it.
What I learned
Along with coding in Swift, my team and I also learned a lot about how to write/the structure for certain ideas, such as dictionaries, and also learned a lot about collaboration, cooperation, and teamwork, as this wouldn't have been possible without everyone's contributions.
What's next for FinVine
In the future, we hope to expand our app to include more features that will continue to add to our mission of simplifying banking and increase financial literacy, focusing on the younger generation along with those who suffer from a lack of financial education.
