We were inspired by r/place

What it does

It is a collaborative/competitive drawing app where users have to go to a location to draw there

How we built it

We built the frontend using react-native and react-native-maps, and the backend with, postgres, and heroku

Challenges we ran into

We ran into a lot of challenges this weekend. First, the Penn firewall prevented us from accessing our database. Second, the maps api we are using claims it has support for overlaying images, but it actually does not. This caused an incredible amount of issues, since we structured the whole application on using 4-bit PNG's

Accomplishments that we're proud of
