Most of our hackathon group are non-women that experience periods. We wanted to make an app ran by non-women to support others who feel the same way we do about our menstrual health.
What it does
This app does more than just track periods, it tracks medication, symptoms, water intake, and soon to be more. We hope this app can be everything that a "normal" period tracking app lacks.
How we built it
We used Android Studio and GitHub to make branches of a project and work on different aspects of the project together, from someone doing basic functionality, someone doing database work, and someone making the functional app more user-friendly.
Challenges we ran into
Databases, creative uses of GitHub and merge failures, Kotlin compile errors.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The UI/UX is very fluid, our brainstorming went extremely well, our design process, learning, and generating datasets to train our app with.
What we learned
A lot of Kotlin and Java was involved, as well as learning a ton about XML formatting. We also learned about AI, databases, and how storing data affects our clientele.
What's next for Valkyrie, A period app for all
Post hackathon, we plan to increase functionality and make the app usable in the long term. We hope to release it on the google play store eventually.
