When you are sharing a flat or a Spotify subscription with other people, don't you find annoying having to ask them for the money every month? Well, we thought so too so we decided to build an app to make this process way simpler.
What it does
It automates payments between the users by creating subscriptions so that you just have to set up the payment day, the amount of money to be paid, the frequency of the payment, for how long the payment will be made and from who the payment is being received or to who you are paying to and you are done. The payment is going to be made according to the frequency and duration that you set up in an automatic way moving the money from stripe to stripe account.
How we built it
We built an iOS app using React-Native. We have different views such as Main View, Sign in, Sign up, User's Dashboard, Create a Subscription and View Subscriptions.
Challenges we ran into
We thought that we were going to be able to move money from bank account to bank account but in reality that's not possible, we also need the card number of the user. We got stuck in this part as it wasn't that simple to implement and ran out of time so we couldn't continue anymore.
What's next for Recur
Find a better money related API and be able to actually make the money transactions.
