Cook lazy, eat smart.

Imagine you come home from a long day of work, and all you want is a hot meal...but you don’t want to go out. You open the fridge all ready to cook, until you realize that your fridge is nearly empty, except for some chicken. Well, you might think that you’re doomed. And you probably were, until Lazy Fridge came along. Lazy Fridge is an android application that allows you to input your ingredients and instantaneously get a list of recipes with the corresponding ingredients.
Lazy Fridge aims to solve 2 problems: food wastage and inconvenience. We were appalled to by the fact that so much food is wasted and we wanted to help minimize this, so we created Lazy Fridge. We also found that there wasn’t an app that allowed users to use the resources they had to make a meal, so we wanted to create a convenient way.
We are addressing these issues through our android application called Lazy Fridge.
Combining frontend and back end
Didn’t understand why the app was crashing sometimes.
Learning about the different widgets that could be added into Android Studio.
Understanding how to print data and learning more about object oriented programming
Working with multiple Java pages and files at once
Solution to Back-End Problems:
We had to a watch a lot of YoutTube tutorials and get assistance from our teacher.
The app would keep crashing whenever we would add extra buttons to our slides.
Sometimes the program showed that we had no errors, but when we would run it on the phone, the app wouldn’t launch.
Also, it was very difficult to adjust the Android Studio layouts because many of them were pre-programmed.
Solution to Front-End Problems:
We watched a few Youtube tutorials, but most of the problems were fixed by playing around with the different layouts and using fundamental programming logic.
