My 2 best friends Longman, Tommy and I struggle to make simple yes or no decisions every day. We usually rely on coin flips, but this is so archaic that my team and I decided it was time the world needed an update.
What it does
It generates either a yes or no at random whenever the user touches their phone screen. (Currently working on IOS only)
How I built it
We used xcode and swift to build the app.
Challenges I ran into
We are all relatively new to swift and IOS app development, so we had no idea how to do anything in the beginning. The biggest challenge was researching how to make all aspects of our app within the time constraints and also get an adequate amount of sleep.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Obviously, the final product. It's clean and the UI experience can be described as intoxicatingly smooth and instantly responsive while still being firmly grounded in the palm of your hand.
What I learned
The basics of IOS app development.
What's next for Decision Maker
An advanced decision maker view that takes a question and also accepts "considerations" which can each be scored with a slider from -10 to 10 representing the weighting of the consideration as a con and pro. The user will be able to add as many considerations as they want, and when they press the "decide" button the phone will add up all the points from the considerations and will output the overall best decision depending on the total "pro" points and "con" points.
