Reverie

Capture moments through music.

Inspiration

  • We wanted a cooler way to store memories than just pictures and videos
  • For many, music serves as a timestamp, allowing people to associate certain emotions and ideas with songs they're listening too at the time
  • We thought, "What if we could combine this intangible grasp of time, with the powerful ability to geotag maps?"

What it does

  • Reverie attaches music you are listening to during a trip to the location you are currently at. Upon tagging a location, you can also enter more details about how you feel at the time.

How we built it

  • Using HTML/CSS/JavaScript and the Esri Arcgis API

Challenges we ran into

  • Difficult to understand documentation
  • Learning a new API, and connecting it with multiple other APIs
  • Managing git feature branches and merge conflicts
  • Working together when all our body clocks were off sync
  • Finding a well supported music API that could let us access recent music

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • It's a fully functional (kinda) web app
  • UI and Design were not harmed in the making of the hack
  • Got an MVP that we iterated and improved on

What I learned

  • Learned how to use APIs, experienced the dangers of callback hell
  • JavaScript file management and merging

What's next for Reverie

  • Release an iOS app
