From the notion page, I was looking at the brainstorming section and it discouraged googling generic ideas such as "Top Sustainability Problems 2021", and encouraged looking at my daily life/surroundings for ideas. So, I eventually thought of my cat. I love him very much and decided to base my very first app on him.
What it does
There are two buttons and both buttons lead to a picture of my cat :)
How we built it
I followed the Android Developers tutorial for creating an Android project, and made slight adjustments to allow for the functionality that I wanted.
Challenges we ran into
I got stuck on uploading the image of my cat into Android Studio because it kept appearing as a grey image. However, after a couple of Google searches, I found a fix on Stack Overflow.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This was my first ever app/hackathon and I'm proud that I was able to create an app, as simple as it is.
What we learned
I learned the very basics of creating apps in Android Studio.
What's next for Simple Beginner App
Right now, the functionality is extremely simple. However, with more learning and experience, I hope to be able to update the interface to be more appealing to the eye.
