We aim to help procrastinators with their procrastination in a creative and interactive way.
What it does
This phone application allows users to set notifications with prolonged audio alarms. Users can create an account and add friends on the platform to request an alarm from a friend. Friends can then choose a question. When the alarm goes off, the user will have to answer the question correctly in order to snooze the alarm.
How we built it
We brainstormed ideas first and decided on a stack. We collaborated both physically and online. We used expo, accompanied by React-native and Firebase.
Challenges we ran into
We were having trouble finding the most appropriate alarm library that is compatible with expo. React-native was also giving us a lot of issues on rendering which caused infinite loops.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to finish the basic structures of the app within 24 hours, with some extend of designing and styling.
What we learned
We learnt how to handle react-native with Firebase, as well as what expo is capable with.
What's next for The Most Annoying Reminder
Take a step further and make it the most annoying alarm with customised sounds and more interactions with friends.
