Building a Textbook Exchange App Spring 2017

The Task

In a class called Advanced Programming Techniques, I and four other team members developed an app for Princeton students to exchange textbooks. At Princeton, most students use a Facebook page for buying and selling textbooks that is ill-suited to the task. The Facebook page we found required searching through non-standardized posts, making it difficult to find what you want. Our solution was Nextbook, an Android and IOS app built with React Native, making the exchange process much more streamlined. Were I to redo the project, I would have done much more user testing and visual design, but my main objective was to learn React Native and build the front-end of the app, which was my responsibility.
