Teen E-cig use has been a worldwide problem. Many teens are opting for vape pens for their supposedly "cool" nature. This however, causes health issues AND hurts the environment. We took it upon ourselves to try and put an end to issue.
What it does
Vaporize is a tool that allows young people to ditch their vape pens and electronic cigarettes. While doing so, they are consequently helping the environment and preventing un-recycable e-pods going into landfills and harmful gasses from going into the atmosphere.
How we built it
We used Flutter and Dart for the mobile app. The backend database is handled via Firebase.
Challenges we ran into
We decided to make every UI component custom. This gave us the ability to make it our project our completely own, but it also added to the complexity of gluing everything together.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are glad that we actually created an app that is use-able and can perhaps motivate teens to better their health via Eco-initiatives.
What we learned
We had absolutely no knowledge of Flutter before starting this. Coming from a web development background however, helped immensely in figuring out the power of Flutter.
What's next for Vaporize
We are going to continue developing it! Perhaps add other integrations like sharing to social media channels and creating Teen Coping Groups to help one another quit smoking e-cigs.
