Everyone has a bunch of referral codes lying around from a ton of apps but no one really uses them more than once or twice, we at ReferHub feel that referrals are some of the easiest ways to make money without really doing anything at all. Yeah you heard that right, we connect you to a world of potential with a single click of button that allows you to either reach out for someones code or even put your own up. The best part did you say? Well that code stays until its expiry. That basically means your code can still be used by everyone and you still would be making money when your by the pool just slurping lemonade. We remove the hassle of you depending and waiting on others for getting your deals through, by matching you with someone ready to use your current link. So what are you waiting for? Get started with ReferHub today!
How we built it
We built it using Java on Android studio and used the Firebase database API for user authentication and storing coupon codes of the users.
Challenges we ran into
Database storage turned out to be quite a challenge as our real time values we're failing to react with Async methods of the Database's API. Another challenge we ran into, was understanding the behavior and characteristics of the users and creating a common category for each of them.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We managed to get the user authentication right after a long tussle and managed to filter coupon codes of the user and come up with an easy way to manage them
What's next for ReferHUB
We're planning on launch an iOS app (hey, we don't discriminate!) and are also looking into making seamless integration of coupon codes into the apps and timely deletion of expired codes.
