When the pandemic broke out in December 2019, scores of us never thought we were going to find ourselves cutting huge aspects of our social activities to curb the spread of a pandemic that is posing serious threats to human existence.

Since the virus has spread to almost all countries of the world, we have been advised by the W.H.O. and other health organizations/experts to practice hygiene that includes incessant hand washing and perhaps the most concerning the one which is social distancing.

Ever found yourself in a situation where you repeat patterns to your feeding, sleeping and working? This is fast becoming the reality for a huge number of us because our social relations have been cut out to the barest minimum as we cannot even dare go to our offices for the fear of contracting the virus from people who do not even know they are carrying it.

What it does

VibeUp is an app created for every one of us that has to self-isolate or people that have had to stay quarantined while their health is being monitored. We have created this app to transcend the pandemic to something that can inspire and help you in your daily life.

It was borne out of the need to have something positive to cling on to in these times, something that helps you focus on the best parts of staying at home and away from the stress of our daily lives as you are helped with several activities and tips on how you can do the daily activities you do in isolation, even the most mundane tasks like taking a shower!

How we built it

We’ve come up with the idea very fast because we wanted to make a change. A change in the way people surround themselves with bad news, constantly hearing the numbers of infected and the numbers of death. When we shared the idea, the interest of the people who wanted to support us was enormous. We separated the work throughout our team members and we’ve started working.

Challenges we ran into

The biggest challenge was the short time we had until the deadline. The idea was big, and the time was little.

Accomplishments that we are proud of

We are very proud of the excellent time management and team spirit. Working from 3 countries around the world in 3 different timezones, we all have given our best to finalize the submission within 36 hours.

What we've learned

That we all can invest our time for the greater good and make a major shift in consciousness.

What's next for VibeUp

As we play our part and we keep up the good fight in putting an end to this pandemic, we offer you something that can help you every step of the way and we hope you enjoy it! This app can function with minimal network access that could end up helping people living in remote locations, extremely cold regions where the whole population spends an extended period of time inside and other similar populations after the crisis as well. The next steps are developing the mobile app, beta testing, finding investors and deployment.
