Project Notebook: SMSmart

The past few weeks the team has been working on developing a basic Android app to the Yelp and Google maps API backend services. The team has also been hard at work researching distribution channels for the application, and also researching technical challenges of adding access to Gmail, Facebook and Twitter. We expect to have Yelp, Google Maps, and Trip Advisor fully functional by the end of October.
