As our team did not know any front-end development, and the only common language between all of us was Java, we decided that it was natural to try developing for Android, since it's based on Java. We started the hackathon struggling with even the "Hello, World" program in Android, and encountered many difficulties while trying to set up our environment. We decided that it would be best to be ambitious, but still wanted something to show for our work, and decided on an app that could solve the tedious physics problems that plagued us throughout high school. We wanted to creat an app that would help to alleviate some of that stress in future generations of physics students. We were inspired by Ethan Shernan's AP Physics calculator, a much simplified variation of our app. We took the idea much further and incorporated more functions, culminating in this Android application. (The launcher icon was designed during the hackathon!)
