Overview

Study Tracker is a Chrome extension that reminds studying users to take a short break every hour! Study Tracker also tracks user browser activity, displaying the amount of time spent on each website.

Inspiration

We wanted to try out building a Chrome extension, and making an app that helps users become more productive seemed like a great goal!

What it does

Study Tracker has two main features: the study timer and the web activity monitor. After an hour, the study timer notifies the user to take a break and begins a 10-minute break timer. After break time is up, the study timer begins again. Users can see how much study or break time is remaining by clicking the Study Tracker extension icon.

The web activity monitor is also viewed using the icon. From here, users can see how much time they spend on the top 5 websites they've visited while Study Tracker is active. Users can view their own web activity to gauge how productive they are while studying.

Tools

Study Tracker was built in JavaScript and HTML/CSS, and Google's Chrome Extensions API was used to monitor web activity.
