What it does

A mobile app gives users the opportunity to record a text memory and associate it with their GPS coordinates at the time.

How we built it

We built this using React, Firebase

Challenges we ran into

Storing and retrieving data in Firebase turned out to be surprisingly challenging, this Backend work was our biggest bottleneck

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Creating an app with multiple panes that users can navigate

What we learned

Deploying a fully functional version 1 of our app should be easily doable within another 10 hours of engineering time

What's next for WilderVoices

Integrating with Google Cloud's Speech to Text API to record audio and automatically prepare memories for sending to their state legislators
