Wavepool is a social application that lets users see what is going on around them in their community. The applicaiton is a feed of posts that were made within a certain radius of the users location. Users make text based posts and can take an optional picture. An example post might be “Having a garage sale at my house today at 3PM. I’m selling musical instruments also.”. The application automatically tags their location so that others can navigate to that spot.
- Uses the device location to create a geofence, which is used to query posts from the database.
- Uses AT&T API’s to deliver speech to text capabilities and advertising based on users location, etc.
- Winning application for the AT&T Hackathon at IBM Impact 2013. Click here to see.
