Unmessify

Unmessify is an app that aims to make the hostel mess… less of a mess.

The current version gives you a convenient user interface to check the mess menu and stay on top of announcements.

It was originally made in under 24 hours during a hackathon with a wider scope, by me (Kanishka Chakraborty) and my friend Teesha Saxena (go check out her website). The app continues to be developed as new features are requested and bugs are reported. Feedback is highly appreciated.
