We were inspired by the Moneytopia game from saveandinvest.org. The game is outdated, and we wanted to make something that was more accessible and fun for students of our generation.
What it does
This app provides helpful information about spending plans/budgets, saving for college, and setting smart finance goals. Each section has smart tips, extra resources, and a quiz for users to test their knowledge!
How we built it
We built this using Java in Android Studio.
Challenges we ran into
We had problems trying to synthesize all of our information and formatting that into the app. Additionally, we ran into some problems with the best way to build our quiz.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of our ability to incorporate everyone's skill sets, and the cleanliness of our design.
What we learned
Some of us had never used Android Studio before, so we learned how to build an app on that.
What's next for Money Simply
We hope to have more interactive features and activities to help users be smarter with their financial habits.
