We were inspired by an app intel uses to stop employees from working when they work to fast. We realized that it is important to balance work and rest to improve their physical and mental well being.
What it does
The app allows you to set an activity and after a pre-determined time, it will notify you to take a short break before continuing on your work
How we built it
Our app was mostly built on Fitbit studio, their online IDE. We also used figma to wireframe and prototype our app and used git to collaborate.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into a few challenges like the timer, the icons for the button.The main challenge we ran into was the code for the countdown timer, we had an issue that the timer kept ticking even after it has reached 0. Our team also struggled with putting icons in our buttons, luckily our mentors were quick to spot the use of different quotation marks in the fitbit documentation which wasn't readable by their IDE.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were proud to have made a fitbit app for the first time. Although it was a simple timer app, we were able to learn how to make a timer, and work with the limited documentation online to make something usable.
What we learned
We learned the importance of having good documentation to help new developers get started with making an app for the platform.
