Get spending suggestions based on your income
Budget Pig is an app made during the MasterCard Hackathon 11/7/2015 - 11/8/2015. It allows the user to enter their income and allot their budget into categories such as food, leisure, and transportation. We focused on food budgeting, which shows restaurant suggestions pulled from the Mastercard Places API and Yelp API. A projected feature was to allow people to purchase food and pick it up within the app suggestions. If the average price for the venue was higher than your food budget, it will give a list of prompts to remind you about your budget before purchasing, helping you stay on your budget and save money.
- Utilized Foursquare API and Mastercard's Places API to get a list of venues
- Calculated average price of items in venue
- Used Mastercard's Simplify Commerce to make payments
- Worked in a team of 4 to accomplish project in 2 days
