Doorways

This React Native app uses augmented reality (AR) to give a virtual tour of rental or sale properties. Real-estate agents could hop onto the customer dashboard and upload pictures or videos of their listing. The Doorways company professionals then convert those to an AR experience shown on a React Native mobile app. One could even open or close doors to enter different rooms and, from the comfort of their place, see the whole listing.

I developed a huge administrator panel with an ERP system from scratch and integrated it with Vend POS. I also created a mobile application to show users the status and current location of their packages during delivery. The QR code integration automatically marked packages as delivered when delivery personnel scanned the code and uploaded delivery pictures.

The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
