Today's world can be often so overwhelming that we forget to take a second and appreciate the day that we have. Moment asks you to slow down, capture a moment for yourself, and appreciate the world around you.
What it does
Moment is a personal app that asks that the user takes one photo each day, and to memorialize it with a caption. The user is then able to see their days they have memorialized in the past. The user is also limited to only one photo each day so they can take a moment to mark that importance-- because we can only live in this moment, right now.
How we built it
We used Android Studio to create this app, and coded it in Java.
Challenges we ran into
Saving photos to GCP Firebase and retrieving them from there to create the time line
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Making a visually pleasing app and learning how to better use Firebase to authenticate, use the realtime database, and to store the images. Finishing an MVP!
What we learned
Firebase, more practice with Android Studio, and new Android design elements
What's next for Moment
We want to research how to store the photos locally, or have the app just point to photos in the user's phone, since we cannot keep using this same Firebase for many accounts.
Implement logic to limit photo taking to one a day to encourage mindfulness.
