We wanted to develop a system where you could share whatever you were up to without the concerns of followers, friends or subscribers to whoevers around (literally).
What it does
PictoCache shares nearby and recent pictures between its users.
How we built it
We chose to develope for both android and ios concurrently and chose to use ionic 2 and angular 2 to power our front end. Our backend sits on a powerful linode server that stores all images and metadata.
Challenges we ran into
Angular 2 just came out. Its Hard!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud of the platform that we have built espically how interactive and responsive it is.
What we learned
Next time we will opt for a native solution to avoid the mess that is ionic+angular.
What's next for PictoCache
Gifs! And maybe android and ios stores.
