“Timely: Be on top of your day, every day”
About this Project:
The problem our app addresses is time management in the lives of college and high school students. As you get more assignments in school, it becomes harder and harder to allocate your time to family and take care of your physical, and mental health.
Our app is designed with a human-centered approach from the ground up, so we have accumulated tons of feedback from our potential users to make the final version of our app.
As the user runs the app for the second time, the home screen is opened by default; it consists of reconfigurable and personalizable “blocks”, which are designed to look like a widget on your phone. The idea behind this design is to allow users to configure the app based on their personal preferences, rather than ones strictly set by the developers. For example, adding motivational quotes, personally adjusted by the app sleeping schedule, or even suggestions which book to read on that particular day.
On the bottom of the screen there is a navigation bar, where we have categorized the most important features of our app.
The icon next to a home screen is a tasks list, its main function is to put tasks and reminders from different apps and services which the user uses into one place, organizing them in a simple and easy-to-understand way, allowing the user to add their own task/reminder.
The last page in our navigation bar, besides settings and those mentioned above, is the “family screen”. In the family screen, the most information is displayed, which helps to manage time students spend with their family most effectively. Apart from chats, where users are able to see missing messages in the most important conversations for them, they can look up reminders, To-Do lists, future events, or plans in the Shared Reminders section, where family members are allowed to add or edit items on that list.
The app will heavily utilize the benefits of AI and machine learning to adjust the individual preferences for each user, and how much time the user should allocate on different assignments, tasks, or work to get the most out of their day.

Feedback from the Judges:
As you design the user experience and prioritize key features/functionality of your application, here are a few questions for your consideration:
- How does your application improve upon the user experience and benefits as compared to existing apps/products (e.g., shared calendar apps; e-mail/messaging apps; time management and productivity apps; fitness apps and bands/watches)?
- How would you make your app appeal to high school and college students? What are the unique features, benefits and value for people between the ages of 14 and 23?
- How might your app monitor and track how a user is spending time (e.g., productivity in school work; exercise; social media usage) and provide suggestions/nudges on how a user can improve?
Hope you continue to build-test-learn on your Timely concept. You are off to a great start. Good luck!
