So I just heard about glide about a week ago, and I can tell you I’m so happy by how easy it is to launch a little side-project like the one I’m going to present you today, congrats to the team for creating such a great service
So Sunchaze is an app I created after reflecting on my own attraction to that giant burning ball in the sky . I’m a SEO guy but also a photographer, and I simply love taking pictures during sunrise/sunset. So the idea of this app came when I was watching another beautiful sunset where I’m located now, Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
The app basically works as a directory of the best spots to watch the sunset in Puerto Escondido . It is the main concept for now but I plan on adding a lot more in the future.
Technically the app has 3 screens :
- Spots : that’s the main screen where users can discover spots based on their category, their crowdedness and their access difficulty.
- Map View : As you guessed it a Map View of all the spots with a favorite function.
- Chat : the chat tab to talk between the sunchazers
- About : Just an about page where I present myself and the project.
My biggest need right now would be to let my users choose the city where they are located if I plan to open this app to more cities in the world. You see I’d like to have a “Parameters” tab. There you have a “Choice” component to choose your city. This choice component would impact the whole app and only the displays the spots tagged with the corresponding city. For the moment I think it’s impossible to do that in Glide Prove me wrong though !
Please feel free to check it out : https://sunchaze.com/ I’d love to get your feedbacks/suggestions !
