The Housing Bubble Crash in 2008 impacted many Americans who did not know what houses they could afford. We wanted a fun way for people to browse through houses but also learn what houses they can buy within their means.
What it does
The app is like Tinder. Swipe right or left to like or dislike a house. For the houses you like, you can see which houses you have matched with and have been rejected by. For your rejections, you can see why you did not qualify for a house, based on your inputted income and credit score.
How I built it
We used a third-party library to build swipeable cards and Firebase to store our data.
Challenges I ran into
The third-party library had its faults. Android Studio was slow. Not enough time.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
A working app. We worked well as a team. Learning Firebase.
What I learned
Setting up Firebase. It takes a lot more time to make a solid app
What's next for Hinder
Move beyond prototyping. Change the world of house-buying. Go global. Make millions.
