Bike Rental App

A shared mobility mobile application that includes bicycles equipped with automatic locks. After scanning the QR code on the bike, the lock unlocks automatically, allowing the user to ride. The built-in locks are equipped with GPS, which enables the system to track location in real time and users to locate available bicycles easily.

In this project, I played a key role in developing the mobile application and back-end architecture.

E-learning Platform

An educational website that provides video banking courses to banking and SSC CGL candidates. This app has a unique feature, i.e., the lecture videos on the platform are encrypted using VdoCipher, preventing anyone from downloading any of those videos to their system.

I developed the web app with Angular and the back end in Firebase.

Online Book Store

An eCommerce web application for purchasing books such as entrance exam preparation books, college textbooks, and school books. I developed it using Angular, while the back end was developed using Firebase.

Grocery Delivery App

It is an application for customers to order essential items from nearby small, family-owned shops selling groceries. This service was launched during the pandemic to prevent people from physically going out to buy groceries. Individual small grocers registered through the app, and customers ordered their groceries. I developed a cross-platform mobile application and the entire back end.
