Many people do not have access to a smartphone, or have spotty signal on their phones, so this app allows them to still gain access to transportation.

What it does

Hails a Cab via SMS

How I built it

The team built this app through node.js, the Uber API, google geocoding, mongodb, html, and twilio.

Challenges I ran into

Uber API authentication. Documentation wasn't very clear at times.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Hailing an uber with a text message after 16 hours of straight coding.

What I learned

Twilio API, uber API, and creating large code bases using node.js

What's next for Toober

Improving the UX, creating a production environment, and harnessing the data we will collect.
