What is this?

ChopChop is a mobile app targeted for college students where you can take notes of the ingredients that you currently have, your budget, and your available time. It will then help you find healthy recipes that suit your needs. To make things even faster, you can also take a picture of your ingredients so ChopChop can recognize and add them to your list!

Our team won the “Best UX” award out of 189 submissions.

What was your role in the team?

I worked on the app’s UI and UX. I also used Firebase for the database and integrated Algolia for the ingredient search.

How was this built?

  • Ionic for building the app to mobile and using the native camera API.
  • Angular for making the UI and helping team members work on different components without worrying about conflicts.
  • Firebase for storing user data.
  • Google Vision API for detecting ingredients from user submitted pictures.
  • Algolia for instant look up of recipes.
