Pokemon Go has been game that we have all played and the "get up and move around" aspect of the game motivated us to utilize that strategy in our project. One of the easiest ways to help the environment is to simply recycle. By combining these 2 things, we developed Recycle Go, an interactive app that will motivate members to explore and help make their community a better place by recycling as much recyclables as they can.
What it does
Recycle Go is an app that encourages recycling by offering incentives from various businesses within the community (coupons, discounts) . These incentives will motivate users to go out and recycle, benefiting themselves, the environment, and the community as a whole.
How we built it
We used Android Studio to develop our app for android.
Challenges we ran into
Some challenges that we ran into was the interactive aspect of the app as well as formatting each individual screen that the user would see.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the user friendliness of the app and the motive and background for the creation of Recycle Go.
What we learned
We learned how to better use Android Studio and how to make an efficient running app.
What's next for Recycle Go
We hope to add a special camera feature that can automatically detect and track down how much one is recycling just by taking a picture. We also hope to implement more aesthetically pleasing designs to the app.
