What it does
Takes in a voice command of a mathematical operation and then outputs the results.
How we built it
Blood, sweat, and tears ...and YouTube videos
Challenges we ran into
There were many of them. One of the largest, that we were unable to solve, was that the Wolfram Alpha API results gives you a .gif image of the result which swift's image container is unable to process. The other big one was animating anything within the app. Multithreaded programming failed terribly.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made something which kinda works and does what we wanted it to do.
What we learned
We learned what it was like to attend a hackathon and spend 24 hours trying to learn new tech while trying to implement it. We had no experience with swift or making API calls prior to this project.
