About

Many people are usually clueless when it comes to the events happening around them. The app takes care of this by offering users a comprehensive guideline for all the activities happening in their area. This includes events, festivals, and exhibitions. The app avails all the details of the events such as date, time, location, costs, and schedule of activities, organizers, participating stores, videos, and photos.

Additionally, the application also offers a guide to home businesses and vendors highlighting products, promotions, and contact information. Users can select event categories they are interested in so as to plan attendance. Another impressive feature is that you can use the app to find the site of the event easily to get precise directions to the event. Both vendors and attendees can benefit from using the app.

Challenges

Challenge

To implement a customized weekly calendar

Checking in users into a particular event based on current location, the status of the event (completed, live, upcoming) or location of the event.

Managing Celebrity and user event schedules.

Switching between live and fixed locations for vendors while displaying both location markers on the map.

Solution

Solution

We made the reparation of custom calendar widget for Android for the weekly calendar using Google API to measure distance based on the current location of user, latitude, longitude and the event venue latlong. We developed a custom algorithm to display schedule of a celebrity to the user allowing for more activities while checkin at that time.

We implemented a local SQLite database as well as a storing vendor profile inside a local database. We also added Google location service and an offline map image for similar results while re-using all the existing APP APIs and integrating the same APP API in a website to save on time.
