Projects

GuiltTrip (2014)

An Android app (unreleased) built during Innovation Day at Opower. I worked on this application with a coworker. It displays the amount of carbon emmissions that could be saved if one were to choose public transportation instead of a car. It also provides a little motivation to convince the user to choose public transportation.

Technologies Used: Java, Android, Retrofit, Gradle, Google Maps API
