What really inspired us to create this app was that we’ve also been affected by this drought too and thought we should help those who are still affected by it.
What it does
Our app, the Water Tracker, gives the user the opportunity to learn how to save water, why it is important and be able to manage their water use.
How I built it
We created our app with the help of Mit App Inventor and created it in a way so the user can easily go through it and do what the user desires to do.
Challenges I ran into
One of the major challenges that we came upon to was programming the water tracker tool to be able to measure and store the amount of water that was used into the phone’s memory. Also another challenge that we faced was the programming itself of our app so it can function the way it functions.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
An accomplishment that we’re proud of is making our app work after the challenges that we faced. We are also proud that we managed to be able to participate in the national competition.
What I learned
One of the most important things that we learned was that we learned some of the basics into programming something (like an app), and also learned that making an app isn’t as easy as it sounds.
What's next for Water Tracker
We plan on implementing a simulation of a water tank increasing or decreasing when the user inputs the amount of water.
