TerraMesa inspired us to create an app to help people keep track of their garden in order to encourage more people to take up the hobby by taking out the hassle of remembering everything. Which in turn promotes sustainability because it helps increase food security and reduce carbon emissions.
What it does
Our current application is very limited but all the foundation is there and with more time it could've been a fleshed app.
How we built it
We used Android Studio and Java.
Challenges we ran into
We have never developed an android app so self-teaching was a big factor. We also ran into issues implementing many features that ended up not working but their skeleton is there and with more time we could have easily repaired them.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Successfully laying the ground work for future app development. Found an idea early on and following through with and fleshing it out.
What we learned
How to develop Android applications. We also all learned more about sustainability and promoting a better environment.
What's next for Plant Watch
Release the source code and let it be free.
