About this Project:
Our project is called Moodify. We have created this app to help people with mental health problems. Some ways our project addresses the topics of mental health is how we promote meditation/yoga and therapy. We used light & pastel colors to make our users feel calm and refreshed. Our music & library tab was created to relax our users when they are self-conscious or just need to find some inner peace. We included a quotes & goals section in our app to help motivate our users by adding a daily inspiring quote, and encourage them to jot down their goals. Lastly, our enjoyment section of our tab is to entertain our users when they are in need of someone to talk to, play a relaxing puzzle, or calm themselves using art! If we had all the time in the world to keep working on our project, we would add more therapists and more group chats in our app. Second we would add more interactive activities for the users.
We started with interviewing numerous people and then organized our ideas under themes to decide which ideas are relevant and which are not. After all of us made a storyboard, we addressed our main problem, mental health and ways we could help people become stress-free. We worked on our wireframe to show everything without color, and later received feedback from other peers to revise our app “Moodify” to the best version it can be. Our wireframe showed the first version of our app, showing main points, buttons and directions of our app. Then after that process we added decorations and colors. We used this base presentation to show others how our elements relate to other functions. After we receive our feedback, we retest and learn new ways we can make others help our app. After we finished adding color and decoration, we presented to judges and received great complimentary comments!
When we set this up, we added a goals section for our users. Our group also added our own quotes tab, as well as an enjoyment section which consists of puzzles, art and social experiences which allows you to share experiences with others. It was Imaya’s idea to add personalized music to calm adults and teens. It was Anna’s idea to add motivational quotes. She decided to add the quotes section for a good way to start the day because when people start a day with a good motive, the user will have an overall better day after reading something that could motivate them.
