About this Project:

The app we created, called PMA (Privacy, Motivation, and Add Friends) helps people from different age ranges. PMA allows you to stay motivated, allows you to create new friends and offers variations of safe security for your apps' data. Our app addresses the issue of security violations, such as, names, searches, messages, and social media users' information being sold. Firstly, we wrote our ideas down on a paper. We took a vote on which idea to use. Eventually we decided to pick 3 ideas and combine them into one. From there our idea flourished in Figma.

Once downloaded, our app will ask for permission to access your other apps and then allow you to adjust the security settings. PMA can also be used as a secure messaging app, in which your data is private and cannot be accessed by hackers.

Another feature of PMA is support in self-motivation. This support will include a daily inspirational quote, and meme based on your personal rating. The quotes and the memes we chose are to provide comfort, or to cheer up our users.

Feedback from the Judges:

I want to congratulate you guys on a job well done. It was great to learn about your discovery process to arrive at the product direction you selected to work on. That is a critical step in designing a product that people want. The transformation from sketches to the Figma screens is wonderful to see. You guys should be really proud of your accomplishments. If you guys want to continue exploring this app idea, I would suggest running your ideas with the people who originally voted for it and getting feedback on the good and bad so you can adapt the design to serve their needs.

👏 Director at Accenture Strategy Consulting — Emoti-Con Judge
I like the idea of rounding out a functional application like a central platform to manage privacy with more engaging and impactful features such as memes and chat / connection opportunities. While the three items are not necessarily related, the fun and engaging pieces of the app beyond privacy features add a uniquely compelling way to attract users to the app and keep them engaged to use it. I liked your design flow, aesthetic, and logic, from your figma and slides you could truly understand and visualize the UI and UX of this app. Great job being creative and applying your knowledge of the user journey.

👏 Senior Engineer at Studio MDHR — Emoti-Con Judge
Very cool to put an emphasis on privacy! It's really easy for that to fly under the radar. I also like how you incorporated a motivational quote and picture. I think everyone should get a picture of a cute cat every day. In fact, that might not be a bad app idea itself!
