Accept the challenge to find a lost item
Let them know you found their item to get your reward
Many students at my college abuse the mass email system and use it to try and find their recently lost items. Instead of being helpful they end up being annoying and getting deleted.
What it does
Allows users to post their lost items up on the map where users in the same area will be able to see missing items and try to claim the rewards.
How I built it
Built using Swift, Google Maps, Parse, and Stripe for payments.
Challenges I ran into
We started with another idea using the Clarifai api, which, about 8 hours in, we realized that we wouldn't be able to get accurate enough image recognition. At that point we pivoted to our current app.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Making a current problem such as losing items into a fun experience.
