What does it do?
Our app loads walking tours using Yelp API data stored on a Cockroach DB database. The tour spots get displayed on a map with pictures and short descriptions of the attraction.
How We Built It
- Coded an express.js API for serving json files
- Connected server to cockroach DB
- Developed front end with Android
- Connected Android to API server with okHttp library
Challenges We Came Across
What’s Next for Walky Talky?
We would love to add audio and a more interactive map to the walking tours, and also let users in the community to add their own into the app!
