Inspiration

When we travel in different cars, how many times do we wait/call for people in the car? How many times we wished we get a ride with a friend nearby? How many times do we feel like finding friends around us and hangout with them? Knowing the current location of our friends/kids will save time us this pain and help us co-ordinate better

What it does

With a simple one time phone number based login, the user can create groups of friends/family. When a user invites his friend to join a group and when it is acknowledged by the other side, they can view the people around them.

How we built it

We used firebase for the back-end. The application is primarily with javascript, css, HTML. Cordova helps us host the application as an android/ iOS application. The mobile application thus can be made independent of platform.

Challenges we ran into

-Handling single page architecture -Getting and plotting multiple locations in real-time

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Successfully learnt how to use Apache Cordova and Google's firebase

What we learned

Cordova, maps and firebase are new technologies we learnt

What's next for Spotted

We can have add-on features where we can get call the person we see someone in the map.
