Fly-Buy

Shows the price of each airline ticket.

Fly-Buy shows users the prices other people paid for flights. Fly-Buy displays the Dollar amount of each ticket as well as the dates, airline, flight number, and purchase location of each airplane ticket. We made this app based on the need consumers have, which is the ability to make informed purchases of airline tickets, based on accurate and available information.

Ultimately, the aim of providing the Fly-Buy service is to show users how much their peers paid on a given flight, and by extension, the information one needs to know whether or not they got a good deal and how to get a better deal in the future.

Keeping user experience at the core of our product, we made sure to include features that help the user navigate our app. These usability features include automatic form populating, null-use case handling, table sorting features as well as a clean, clear, and navigable interface.

Roles: Designer, Front end, Back end, and API routes.
Technologies: Angular.js, Express, D3.js, SASS, google+


Trailmix

Research a hike beforehand.

Trail Mix is a modern, full-stack web-application. Trail Mix arose from a real-world need hikers have, which is to know relevant information about a hike before actually hiking the trail. Taking our users’ needs and lifestyles to heart, we crafted a mobile-first design. Before writing a single line of code, our team pored over countless wireframes, making sure the UX would be sleek and intuitive.

By keeping the scope of the project simple, our team was able to provide attention to every detail and execute the idea all the way through so that the Trail Mix software supports every use-case, even the null use cases. On the back end of the app, we ensure the security of our users through the use of Google social authentication,

which not only authenticates each user but also provides a seamless and secure experience by protecting and persisting their personal information all the way through each session. As a result of the decision to build the app using JavaScript all the way through the stack, our product is fast and is supported by all browsers. Won’t you check it out? https://www.trailmix.in
