What it does
Allows users to share their locations, along with a status message, with friends
How we built it
Android studio, java, xml, firebase, esri
Challenges we ran into
It was our first time building an app with firebase with real time data and updation and so it took a while to get things started. we also had to understand how to use esri's api which took a while as well.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We worked all night to create a working social app and overcame issues related to map and geolocation.
What we learned
We were able to learn a lot with firebase, maps, permissions, and how to integrate api's that are unfamiliar.
What's next for Loc8
Expand social media capabilities like chatting with friends and being able to create posts
