Product overview

    From code path iOS development courses, I learned how to program in Swift and Xcode to create an iOS app. The courses were designed for the Swift beginner with basic coding knowledge. Students need to participate in weekly classes and collaborate together to complete a well-functioning iOS app in 10 weeks.

    After discussing with a partner, we came out with an inspirative app, called MotivateMe. MotivateMe is an iOS APP, sending positive quotes to encourage users every day and drive them to pursue their life goals. Generally, we love the idea of combining quote and diary, and believe users writing down their thoughts to a quote they resonated with will help their personal growth. Through MotivateMe app, on its home page, there are two ways presenting quotes, and on the card mode, users can swipe each quote card either like it or not. Those quote cards have been liked will be sorted into different categories in order to easily be researched. In short,this app is a quote dictionary which organizes users’ favorite well with their notes.

So, we list out what potential features would be nice to be placed in the app, and that is the conclusion.
