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.
