Wanted to create a cool way of integrating social networking and maps.
What it does
Hearth is a map-based app that collects geolocation data and displays hotspots. It also allows users to drop pins for routing.
How we built it
We used Swift on Xcode , implementing MapKit and Chameleon APIs.
Challenges we ran into
Navigation– getting pins to function properly APIs were initially cluttered and difficult to get a grasp on Code got a little messy because we were using Core Data Hotspot Algorithms were difficult to create Rendering the hotspots on MapKit was also tough
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a working version of Hearth We were able to get past a few major roadblocks in the main purpose and functionality of our application.
What we learned
Cocoapods Coredata MapKit
What's next for Hearth
SOCIAL HOTSPOT MAPPING - imagine Facebook and Instagram meeting Waze Can see a culmination of all users' locations– good for meeting new people at places that are "lit" Entertainment: movies, sports, games, etc.
