We wanted to create an app that motivates people to stay active and stay connected with their friends.
How it works
Users sign up online and download the app. A group of friends can each put in an equal amount of money, to create a pool that the user with the highest step count at the end of a certain period of time wins. The app uses a pedometer to keep track of the user's steps per day and it compares it to the number of steps of their friends over the challenge period.
Challenges I ran into
Connecting the server to the app was a real challenge for our group.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
A straight 36 hours awake! We're proud of the amount we learned over this period of time about android programming and creating servers.
What I learned
We learned how to create a server that can gain response from an online page and from an android app.
What's next for RunnyMoney
Better group creation and more individual customization.
