We have friends (definitely friends, not us) who are terrible at waking up on time. We figured out we should help them, in the worst way we know.
What it does
You set an alarm time, then it starts ringing with a soothing melody from a crafted Spotify list. If you keep ignoring the alarm, the songs become more and more obnoxious.
How we built it
We built a simple Android app and added a connection to Spotify through the Remote App SDK.
Challenges we ran into
There's always problems with authentication with 3rd party service providers, but once that was solved, the rest was pretty straightforward.
Accomplishments that we are proud of
Relearning how Android development works after may years without developing an app.
What we learned
How to integrate Spotify
What's next for Get The Fuck App
Making the app more usable, maybe release on Google Play Store
