We have all been to boring social gatherings; it's awkward and nobody wants to be there. If only there was an app that would solve such lame gatherings...
What it does
This app allows its users to rate a particular place for its Litness. The lit meter depletes over time but every vote will increase the lit meter! The higher the lit meter, the higher the chances to getting to an awesome party!
How we built it
The backend was built using Node.js, Express.js, and MongoDb. The client was built using Android Studio.
Challenges we ran into
We have faced many issues developing the mobile app with Android Studio, mostly when parsing the JSON data with Java. Also, due to the asynchronous nature of some functions in Node.js, we had to find a way to execute the code in a synchronous fashion.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The amounts of iterations we went thought but in the end, we managed to build an app that works with our specifications.
What we learned
How annoying React.js is and no one should attempt to learn it in under two hours.
What's next for Litmeter
Make it more like Yelp and Snapchat had a baby.
