Bark Life

The aim of this project is to provide users with a mobile app that can assist in helping them find someone to walk their dog.

Project Description

Bark Life is an interactive dog walking application for mobile that is built to connect dog owners with different dog walkers in their location. The app allows for any user to find an on-demand dog walker to walk their dog on a day they may find themselves busy. The project is inspired by similar apps such as “Wag!” and “Walker” which too provide dog owners with the opportunity of interacting with other people in their community. The front-end of the project will be coded using Angular 2 with Ionic 2. The back-end of the project uses Ionic cloud to store all user information, messages and friends in the database. Data is sent between the app and the database through the use of JavaScript functions. Google maps API provides functionality for the apps core feature and allows users to view a GPS map containing dog walkers close to their location.

Project Findings

This investigation resulted in an interactive mobile application which possesses user authentication, Google maps API to help locate other users and profile customization.
