Recipe for Success - VegOut App
Recipe for Success is a non-profit dedicated to combatting childhood obesity by changing the way children understand, appreciate and eat their food through hands on learning in schools.
Our Finterns assisted in their efforts by creating a mobile application for their VegOut challenge that happens each March. The application allows for the participant to track the veggies they are eating, interact with their friends and earn badges throughout the challenge.
The VegOut app was built using these technologies
· Ionic Framework (built on HTML5, AngularJS and Cordova)
· WP-JSON web services and OAuth 1.0 authentication

Klyde Warren Park
The core operational team at Klyde Warren Park wanted to provide a mobile application that would highlight the free programming and events available at the park in a way that was intuitive to park patrons while simultaneously increasing participation in these events. In addition, other important priorities included an interactive map to allow visitors to locate particular points of interest as well as revenue-generating features such as acceptance of donations through the app and the promotion of food/beverage providers.
The Fintern team was able to deliver on all of these requests and more by leveraging Xamarin to build a cross-platform mobile application supporting both Android and iOS platforms as well as an AWS-based cloud backend solution which utilized features such as RDS for relational data storage, EC2 compute resources, and SNS push notification services. The application also features a number of integration points with third party services such as Facebook Single-Sign On (SSO), Google Maps, and Stripe payment processing.

The City of Cedar Hill - Mobile Trail Map App
The Trails of Cedar Hill is a mobile app that showcases the
extensive parks, trails, and features that highlight the City’s goal of being
known as “the city within a park.” Additionally, trails and points of
interest within the Cedar Ridge Preserve and Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center are
also included within the app. Once the State of Texas approves their data
for use within the app, the trails and points of interest for the Cedar Hill
State Park will also be showcased.
Although the interns had not used C# or Xamarin before, they
quickly came up to speed and were able to over deliver to our client by
achieving our stretch features (social and camera integration). When the
interns presented the app to the Cedar Hill City Council, the Director of Parks
and Recreation (our sponsor) told the Council that the “team was great to work
with and exceeded all of her expectations. I will remember this project
and Pariveda for the rest of my life.”
The internship project team worked very closely with Cedar Hill to develop and design the product and the Trails of Cedar Hill is currently free to download in both the Apple and Google Play app stores. Please click the links below to download the app for your device!
