Telerik Tagit. Source code and coding walkthrough for a full-featured Xamarin app using computer vision and a beautiful UI. It’s all yours and it’s free.
I am really excited to share with you all the brand new Telerik Tagit.
Telerik Tagit is a slick cross-platform native mobile Xamarin app designed to turn the photo collection on your phone into a database that you can search and sort by the content contained in the individual images. It uses Progress Telerik UI for Xamarin controls for the front end, offering a stunning, high-performant UI. Microsoft Azure's Computer Vision API (part of the Cognitive Services suite) is in use on the backend to caption images and tag them with search keywords. The app is available for Andriod, iOS, and UWP.
But we aren’t just giving you this full-featured app. We’re giving you the source code and a six-part walkthrough to guide you through how the code works. You can download it and access the articles here.
Use the source code as a starting point for creating your own Xamarin app or expand it into something new. Either way, let us know what you think and how you’re using it via Twitter with hashtag #heyTelerik.
And, since we want to make sure you get the most of Tagit Source Code, we’ve also scheduled a live demo. Join us for a live DevChat on Tuesday, November 21 at 11:00 AM ET with Sam Basu, who will walk you through the development process of the app and help you get started on your own project.
We hope you have as much fun using with it as we had creating it.
