LandGrab - A Real-World location capture game / Mobile App in Ionic and using the service

Platform Platform

Entry for The Ionic and 2016 Hackathon, 31 July 2016

The Idea

The idea is to allow people to capture locations in the Real World. This app was Alvis's idea.

How It Works

The user captures blocks of land by moving to them and the one with the most land wins at the end of the contest. This is a perfect way to introduce a new person to a new location.

How It Was Built

This mobile application was built with the sweet Ionic Framework (Angular.js/JavaScript/CSS/HTML5) and uses the service for location and map data.
