Inspiration

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
