We got this idea after seeing older people who lived alone and they had to do all their work
What it does
Older people can post their requests on the app like what they want help with. Nearby students can accept their requests and help them with a little incentive.
Users have to post a request(For example - they need some help with gardening) and students nearby can log in and accept the request. After accepting the request google maps will open which will give direction to the user who posted the request.
How we built it
We made the app using flutter and we used Firebase for authenticating the user and also for storing data. We also used google maps for fetching the location of the user.
Challenges we ran into
We were new to flutter so we were not having much experience with app development. Lastly, we have to work with google map APIs which is not very easy to implement
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were very happy after all of our hard work paid off and we made the whole app in such a small amount of time.
What we learned
We learned two important things: 1.Team Spirit 2.Never Give Up
What's next for ReachOut
we will try to make the UI better and we will also try to improve the overall experience of the user.
