Working on a productivity app is an idea I've played with on and off for a few years now. It started when I wanted to teach myself how to code a mini GUI window using Jframes after finishing my computer science pre-requisites. That project ended up being a timer that alerts you once an hour to remind you to take a short break from whatever you're doing and come back fresh.
After continuing to work on projects revolving around productivity and time management (see the GroupLoop and My Campus projects for reference), I realized that I wanted to take the best features from all of these projects and create a productivity app that I and hopefully others would find helpful. I'm also excited to be able to work on a project from start to finish, and in particular getting to learn more about visual design and mobile app development.
