The time it takes to think of ideas and activities to do for a fun night out takes away from the experience. We want to solve this problem.
What it does
It gives a list of activities to choose from and finds these activities in the nearby locations.
How we built it
We mainly relied on google places and map APIs to get the data we need. We told inspiration from GitHub examples of programs that attempted to do similar things.
Challenges we ran into
The API was really hard to understand to find nearby places. We spent a lot of time finding our own location, which gave us less time to find locations nearby.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of our idea and how it can have real-life applications.
What we learned
Google APIs! Also, working within a team on a software project, and how hard a seemingly "simple" app can be to implement.
What's next for NightOut
The goal for NightOut is to take the user's budget and preferences to sort out a good itinerary for their night out. We also want to use more accurate cost predicting databases.
