Mothers are often reminding us about things that we have to do during the day and offering comfort when things get rough, even if they are no longer living under the same roof as ours. This app was inspired by that so people have a little bit of help with remembering tasks and dealing with their emotions just like how a mother would.
Challenges we ran into
Since we only had 24 hours to make something out of our idea, we decided to focus on making it look comforting more than anything else. Despite that, we were still a little bit pressed for time and there are still some features and design choices that we were unable to implement.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The logo and name of our app is something that the whole team is proud of because of the cutesy look of it in the opening screen. Ibu means 'mother' in Bahasa Indonesia, so some users might be able to pick up on that and take a little bit more comfort in that as well.
What we learned
All problems have solutions
There were a lot of problems we ran into with Figma during the 24 hours. None of us had any previous experience with the website, so most of the things we were doing was through intuition and trial and error. There were lots of trials and errors, but for every error there was always a solution to be found, and we learned again and again that if there was something wrong, there was usually nothing to worry about in the long run.
What's next for ibu
Since Figma is more of a prototype website, we were limited on what functionality we could put into the app. The login feature isn't very practical in Figma - or if it is, we haven't found out how to do it - but if we decide to continue developing the app one day, the login feature is most definitely something that will be properly implemented.
Something else that we wanted was little animations and a short tutorial on how to use it. We didn't have time to figure out how to use it on Figma, but more decorations and animations is also something we would like to see.
