We thought that this was a quick and easy way to create a reminder without the need of another app.
What it does
Using twilio, you can send a message with the reminder time to the phone number. 10 minutes before the time indicated in the text sent, it will send you a reminder text.
How we built it
We used the twilio API along with python and flask.
Challenges we ran into
We came into this hackathon without knowing anything about flask, python, or any of the APIs. We used a lot of the time understanding the basics to python while implementing flask and the twilio API.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
To be able to create this hack and learning how to use flask and twilio API.
What we learned
We learned the basics of how flask and servers worked. Also learned the python language. We also learned how to get our own domains by using ngrok.
What's next for RemindTxt
We would like to further develop this hack so that it can utilize pictures and phone calls. Also that make it possible to edit reminders.
