We thought the idea of hacking transportation and social interactions within that sector was really interesting.

How it works

We take Google Maps data to find your current location and how far you are from your destination. When you are a certain distance from your destination, we will text whoever you choose to contact, using Twilio.

Challenges I ran into

We had a lot of problems because we initially chose to do a different hack, and didn't switch over to this one until halfway through. Also--neither of us had ever programmed for Android before!

What I learned

We both learned a lot about developing for Android.

What's next for textWhen

Hopefully some other hardware hacks that help stop distracted driving and help people out in their busy daily lives
