Build a Photo Saver App

In this series you will build a location-aware photo saving app in Dropsource. Follow the video above or read through the tutorials below to create the app.

The Photo Saver app allows the user to save images from their device camera to the API, along with their current location. Users can view their photo collection and select a photo to view it together with its location presented on a map. The app includes user management, so each user will only see their own photos.

Project Resources

The project uses the following images – you can download all of the project assets in the zipped file below:

Photo Save - Logo Photo Save - Empty Collection Photo Save - Placeholder Photo Save - Camera Photo Save - Upload Photo Save - Add back arrow Photo Save - App Icon

The app uses an API built on Bubble – you will need the OpenAPI (Swagger) specification for it. The API provides endpoints to log the user in, retrieve their existing photos together with the location each one was saved at, and save new photos to their collection.

Download and unzip this archive file, which includes both the specification file and the image assets for the project:

Try the App

You can try the app out in the simulator – enter any email address / password and it will sign you up:

Get Started Building

To get started building the app, create a project, choosing the blank template. The tutorials cover the steps for both iOS and Android, so you can choose whichever platform you prefer. Open your new project in the editor.

Start building the photo saver app by implementing user login.
