I got the idea for this app from a time management technique that I was already familiar with, the Four Quadrants of Time Management. It involves prioritizing tasks based on their importance and urgency. This technique was popularized by Stephen Covey.

What it does

If you've ever had trouble prioritizing your work, this app can help you order your tasks based on just a few details about each one.

How I built it

This app was built with Android Studio and Genymotion.

Challenges I ran into

I discovered that my personal laptop cannot run Android emulators at a reasonable pace. This year, I had the unique experience of working remotely from a computer lab. This is all thanks to the permission and help of the Engineering school's computing support!

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

This is the first polished Android app that I've made outside of class. I can feel how my technique has improved compared to when I made my first Android app.

What I learned

Since I'm new to Android development, I learn about a lot of new techniques and packages with every project. But more importantly, this project I learned that people are glad to help when you ask.

What's next for ToDoQu

In the future, I would like to refine how the app prioritizes tasks and add more criteria that it can order tasks by. It would be nice to implement due dates. The app could also use an aesthetic makeover.
