Foodie Shuffle


Built a native app using React Native that randomizes results pulled in from the Yelp API based on location. Currently in Beta Testing.

Role - Design and Develop
Technology - React Native, Yelp API, JavaScript, HTML


The idea for this app came out of being crippled by choice, when it came to choosing a place to eat. The basic idea was to return results from a Yelp query and then choose only one of those choices, thus letting the computer choose where to eat.


React Native is capable of taking code written in JavaScript (albeit, a very specific version of JS), and transpiling it into Native code (Swift and Java). As mentioned before, I used the Yelp API to fetch results and some simple logic to decide which option to choose and display it in the app.
