Our major inspiration for this project comes from the difficulty in encountering new people and socializing after the first two weeks of college due to the lack of major social events for people to attend.
What it does
This app is designed to connect people with similar interests. This is done with users both creating and attending events created by other peers. This is done through an updated stream of events that people can look at and then join as well as the option for customers to create their own events.
How we built it
Our base application is created in android using Java. Data gets passed between activities using intent to facilitate interaction between users.
Challenges we ran into
Hosting our website was a major issue as well as the time spent on programming and debugging the mobile application. Another issue was the development of a unified vision.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to use the specialization of skills among our team to create the best product given the amount of time.
What we learned
We learned about how to best market our application and present it using appropiate graphics.
What's next for tagAlong
We have a developed a growth plan for this product with features being contingent on the size of the user-base including personalized profiles as well as a friend system and system organized events for major concerts and festivals.
