Our app is made for students, by students. We took inspiration from ourselves! We are all incoming first-year university students who are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives. But along with the excitement, comes challenges as part of our newfound independence. As university students, we know we will have to find a balance between our studies and self-care, and maintain it. We know how hard it can be to build solid routines, let alone turn them into habits, so we decided to create Forget-Me-Not!

What it does

Forget-Me-Not is an app that reminds students to take care of themselves, users have one app to track all their important healthcare needs. With personal customizations of preference, students will get daily reminders to help them keep track of their water intake, maintain a workout routine, consistent sleep schedule, and wash their hands!

How we built it

Forget-Me-Not was built on Android Studio, and will soon be integrated into Flutter for iOS development.

Challenges we ran into

Our biggest challenge in developing this app was finding an efficient way to collaborate on code simultaneously. For many of us, it was our first time using GitHub, Flutter, and Android Studio. We had to quickly familiarize ourselves with the branches and the push/pull features. We ran into issues with committing, pushing, and cloning. However, after hours of research, trials and errors and team-work, we successfully managed to push our code from the editor software onto Github.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Our most valued accomplishment is how much we’ve learned and improved in terms of application development through this challenging process We learned and became comfortable with repositories using Github. We were able to successfully create our app with functional buttons. We are also proud of how well we worked together and how much we accomplished in less than 36 hours as beginner hackers.

What we learned

We learned that Google is our friend! Many of the issues we ran into were solved through some quick research. We discovered many helpful online resources just as tutorials and documentation that helped us create our app. We learned many new Java commands in Android Studio and discovered new design techniques when creating our user interface.

What's next for Forget-Me-Not

In the future, we would like to implement many new features such as a resources section where we share links to health and wellness blogs, food recipes, and lifestyle tips. We also hope to include a profile section where people can create community groups for users to interact with. Our next big step would be to integrate our work onto Flutter for iOS.
