We did a brainstorming and the idea came up when combining simple ideas we had. We were looking for something to improve ourself, share our expericiencies linking it with a strong motivation to do so.
What it does
You can add your diary experiences like the exercices that you do, what do you feel about others, or that you learn something this day. We did it with an achievements system, thus you need to accomplish and you get rewarded in the app. In summary, Improvy is where you can look how you are, how you are improving and how your friends see you.
How I built it
The app is builded with Ionic and our API backend with php.
Challenges I ran into
All the team we didn't know Ionic framework, this was a challenge to understand all the pieces and build a full app. Generalize and abstract human concepts to represent them in our app.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
In general all the app, we are very proud of the base idea, the app design, how the avatar is adapting to your status, and the good team job.
What I learned
We have learned how to use Ionic framework and how to represent the person state with a few indicators.
What's next for Improvy
Improving UI to send more feedback to user, adding actions, adding achievements and creating actions with more automatisms (GPS, ....).
