Pingo! is an app that pings you when you’re near a place on your bucket list. Built to address her own desire to complete a personal list of food places to try, Jannine used React-Native, Expo, React-Native-Maps, and Google Maps APIs to load a user's saved and starred places from Google Maps into Pingo!'s map, track a user's location, and send a push notification to the user listing their places of interest that are a 10 minute walk away. In the future, Jannine hopes to implement geofencing and have the app run in the background for a better user experience and less battery drain, as well as have smoother zoom and marker animations.
