Spot Swapper

Do you know any student who's satisfied with how campus parking works? You circle the lots aimlessly, hoping to catch someone leaving at random, or you stalk someone back to their spot. Or maybe you just admit defeat and park at that lot a mile from class.

What if you just knew where the next free spot would be (and no one else did)?

With Spot Swapper, while it can't create more spaces, students can use it to mitigate the chaotic rat race of parking by sharing the location of soon-to-be-free spots one-to-one in realtime.

When you want a spot, choose your parking lot(s) and wait to be matched with someone who's about to leave a spot. You receive marker indicating which space will be yours and a description of the vehicle to help you find it. Just wait by the car, poised to park as usual, and in moments your match arrives to vacate your spot!

When you're leaving, mark your spot as you leave class (if you parked with the app the marker is saved). Signal that you're leaving as you approach the lot and the student you're matched with will be waiting with gratitude!

To incentivize playing both roles, points are required to park, which are earned by successfully swapping your space to someone later.

What's New

-Added a feature to check app-related news on the main screen. It will be used to keep users informed of the progress of establishing the app at their school. This way, you're not in the dark about how fast the app is growing and you can better expect when things will start to pick-up and spots become available.

-Fixed one cause of crashing when on the maps screen and connected to the server. It is most likely experienced when the app returns from the background after connecting to the server.
