Plutus, God of Wealth
Monthly subscriptions pile up. Next thing you know, you notice you're down a hundred dollars. Since when did I ever sign up for Soundcloud Go?!
What it does
Either by linking a bank account or uploading a bank statement, the app tracks reoccurring charges that users might not be aware of.
Let's users manage their billing, set notifications for due payments, and easily see how much money they are spending a month on subscription services.
One-click cancellation coming soon...
Live data analysis of daily usage allows users to see what apps they are using the most and what apps they are using the least (and still paying for it).
How we built it
node/express/jade stack with mongo
plaid api for banking interface
google vision api for OCR
android/room with sqlite
chart.js for the sweet visuals
Challenges we ran into
boy it was a doozy
Accomplishments that we're proud of
we have a working app that we think offers a lot of potential in the growing technology world.
What we learned
some of the things we learned:
- poor api documentation is an absolute nightmare (i'm looking at you tesseract)
- first time some of us have made it longer than 24 hours
- learning the nightmare that is android
