Inspiration

Working on course selection for next semester, I find it annoying to switch among Lou's list for course info, theCourseForum for course review, and my course.edu to build schedule.It would be cool to build an App on my iPhone that integrates all three function, so that I can work on the course selection on my phone in the dinning hall and find out the course as my friends is talking about it.

What it does

This app aims to build up a minimal and convenient search engine for the UVa's course database: http://rabi.phys.virginia.edu/mySIS/CS2/ As well as a dynamic reference to theCourseForum: http://www.thecourseforum.com

How we built it

Challenges we ran into

-Loading Course Data the Application Database
