As college students, we always want to go to the gym, but we don't wanna go there alone! Having a workout buddy makes one more motivated to stay fit and healthy and we wanna show that gymming can be a fun, social experience!

What it does

Gymder allows you to create a network of close friends you would want to exercise with. It enables you to see your friends' free times for day and matches you with friends who are currently free. Once you've found your match, you can message them through the app.

How we built it

We built the app using Android Studio and gathered calendar information using Google's Calendar API.

Challenges we ran into

None of us had any experience with mobile app development, so we had to learn everything as we went along.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Creating a presentable and functional app in 30 hours, being able to access calendar data of our friends, and running the app on our phones.

What we learned

Git, Android Studio, Google Calendar API, XML

What's next for Gymder

Automated scheduling app for other events (meals, performances, and study sessions) and synced with SMS.
