Friends Near Me

JD Hoover

The goal of this project is to build an iPhone application that will allow friends to know when they have spontaneously run into one another. Users will be able to create user accounts and friend request their contacts. When a user has a friend nearby, the application will send them a notification informing them. It will begin by creating an online database that records all of the user accounts in the system, and their locations at regular intervals. When two accounts that are friends are within a given distance of one another a notification will then be sent to both phones indicating which of their friends is nearby.
