As students ourselves we decided to target secondary and higher education students. We choose to develop a productivity app that integrates a Calendar, To-Do list and a Timer.
During our ideation stage, Chris had observed that most students struggle with organisation, with many tabs and downloads at once without a clean desktop. Daniel mentioned connection issues, time differences and a struggle to keep daily routines. We identified that a better planner would be great to assist the need to stay organised, and aimed to create a better planner among the sea of badly designed planner apps.
What it does
Aim: For students to have better organisation, work-life balance and mental health. The web app prototype has a homepage with time, date, inspirational quotes, to-do list, weather and timer. The timer resets itself for each task student is doing.
How we built it
A combination of front-end web languages and back-end database management
Challenges we ran into
- Learning new languages
- Limited time
- Even work amount between team members
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Sleek design
- Everyone is willing to help one another
- Working together
What we learned
Incorporating APIs, building and maintaining databases, making audience-appropriate designs and HTML lists, being open to feedback.
