The idea for creating this app was to help those who are looking forward to conserving energy, whether if it is for environmental purposes or just to save money.
What it does
Our app will be able to estimate the number of kilowatts you have used in the past 24 hours and will also give you tips to improve your energy consumption.
How I built it
We built our app by using MIT-App-Inventor.
Challenges I ran into
There were some challenges with coding for our app, like creating the correct functions for each button or text box in our app.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
One accomplishment that I am proud of, is the coding of our calculator function. We had several problems with it, but once we figured things out, it turned out well.
What I learned
As a team, we learned how to time managed and work cooperatively to get our app completed.
What's next for Kilowallet
As for the future, we are planning on adding more appliances to our database and creating a diary portion to our app so that our users will be able to keep track of how much energy they are using.
