Stash is mobile iOS platform designed for high school and college students to find discounts in their area. Our goal with Stash is to make students more aware and conscious about their spending habits. This app was creating on Xcode using Swift.

Students are unaware about the student discounts offered to them.

By showing all of the available discounts in a student's area, they will be more knowledgeable about how to spend their money.

A big challenge we faced was storing our information about discounts in a database and then linking that database to our app. We experimented with databases such as MySQL and Firebase, but unfortunately, we couldn't get it to work in the amount of time we had. We found a new solution to this problem by simply hard-coding all our information straight into the app. Getting the database to work is something we definitely want to do in the future.
