What it does

  • Uses location-based services to identify students who are within a certain distance from you on campus and are studying the same subject as you, assisting in forming study groups

How we built it

  • With the help of pure grit, self-motivation, and a lot of Chicken McNuggets

Challenges we ran into

  • Absolutely none

... just kidding, we ran into some issues with pushing location services into our database and accessing values, as well as a few front-end issues

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • First time using Firebase and CoreLocation

What we learned

  • How to use Firebase and CoreLocation

What's next for GeoStudy

  • Allow users to create their own geofences and allow students to select the radius at which they are willing to let the app identify potential study peers
