Everyone shops but we all can make it smarter, better and more fun. Our app will tell you where you can buy the cheapest groceries, comparing the overall price and not the single one. We are a small group of dedicated people, who declared war to the big supermarkets, that try to lure you with discounts, but having an overall price more expensive than others. Join us and let us change the way we shop! Let us connect with our community and make the world a little bit better!
What it does
We are building a community based, mobile app that finds the best place for your shopping list. Our application will generate the optimal shopping list based on the cheapest prices and your location.
How we built it
We have a mobile client, written in swift (iOS) that connects to a REST server, based on Java and Payara Glassfish server. The persistence layer is created using an OracleSQL database.
Challenges we ran into
At the begging our idea was a bit fuzzy but the nice people from New Haircut helped a great deal.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We had a pitch that people seem to remember. :)
What we learned
It's worth spending some time to refine your idea before you start.
What's next for ShopCompare
Sky is the limit.
