Most of the capabilities of the app such sharing features, haptic feedback, and choosing pictures are not available on the web app version as those are native capabilities. To get the full expreince of the app, you will need to download the app from the app store.

A crossplatform web application to make event searching easy for busy college students. The app is designed specifically centered around Wesleyan University’s campus and is equipped with a host of features that every event app should consist of.

This was my first attempt to building a comprehensive product for fun and i’ve got to say, I’ve learned a great deal out of this experinece.

Things I learned

  • Taking advantage of mobile device’s native functionality using Cordova
    • Sharing via instagram, messenger, and sms.
    • Haptic Feedback
    • Camera Functionality
    • Calendar Invites
  • Using Firebase Collections to store data with data best practices in mind
  • Learned to make common front-end design patterns from popular app like Fandango and Facebook come to life.
