Lost track of expenditure easily and always wanted to know how much was being spent on food, entertainment, electronics, etc.
What it does
Thrifty allows you to manage user expenses, capture photos of receipts, divide the expenses into categories, and display local businesses that provide cheaper options and help support them during the pandemic.
How we built it
We used React Native for the mobile app development; Tessaract and Python for receipt parser; Flask for backend; Google Natural Language API to classify items into categories
Challenges we ran into
Lesser team members than we started with, working with specific APIs
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're beginners in Mobile App Dev and Machine Learning, super proud of what we could develop and learn despite all the challenges
What we learned
Project Management, almost all the technologies, working over 12-weeks, and demoing!
What's next for Thrifty
More efficient classification of items, location-based businesses, a database of businesses
