I'm an avid book reader, and I have a hard time picking out good books at a bookstore. This android app will allow me to decide whether I want the book or not depending on its reviews.
What it does
Scans QR/Bar code and returns reviews.
How I built it
Using apis and libraries including zxing, jsoup, apache commons, eclipse/android studio
Challenges I ran into
Implementing a qr/barcode scanner in an android app
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learning how to use json data, implement multiple apis to achieve a task
What I learned
Implementing multiple APIs and libraries to achieve a task, using and parsing JSON data, using and parsing HTML data, implementing QR/Bar scanner, handling networking threads and calls
What's next for reVu
The next step will be to take picture of the cover and use opencv to reverse image search and get the books name, isbn, and eventually reviews.
