We are upcoming college freshmen. We realize that moving away from our parents will present unique struggles. We found a simple and fun solution - life hacks!
What it does
Our app consists of three main panels - "Random", "Discover", and "Favorites". The Random page provides new life hacks generated by a randomization algorithm for a daily tip. The Discover page breaks down college life into 7 main categories for the user to pick from - classes, dorm life, travel/transport, food, sleep, networking, and budgeting. The Favorites tab allows the user to save hacks for later use.
How I built it
We created KollegeKitty on XCode using the Swift language. Our process consisted of ideation, screen building, coding, and debugging/testing.
Challenges I ran into
Our primary obstacle was saving hacks into the Favorites tab from our Random and Discover pages.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud of our code's efficiency and reusability and our simple, user-friendly design.
What I learned
We further learned about the development process and debugging code. We practiced organizing our code into classes and simple functions.
What's next for KollegeKitty
We plan on further developing KollegeKitty by integrating API's and generate fresh life hacks for our college users!
