We started by brainstorming around an overarching theme involving either mental health, health, and making the mundane fun. After coming up with a list of over a dozen different ideas, we noticed everyone had a similar idea to make a productivity application, that's how we ended up going with the clock tab.
What it does
Clock Tab is a minimalistic web app that simply displays the current time (centered in the window), with the purpose of increasing a user's productivity by unknowingly recognizing the passage of time. The application also comes with a to-do list feature, 3 different timer intervals, and an inspirational quote generator.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
To be fairly honest we didn't run into any major problems at all. As a group, we planned each step of the way very clearly and had quick update meetings every hour or so to stay on track. There were some small challenges when it came to the coding aspect of things, however stack overflow and w3schools were amazing in helping us solve the problems.
