DESCRIPTIONICT, COLLEGE CHALLENGE, TGAW, POSTER
Theres an App for that!It seems that there is a mobile App for just about everything, and if there is not, then there soon will be.
Apps are big business and are not just made by big corporations, small teams and individuals are producing Apps. Even children are getting in on the action.
More Toast!, Summly and Bubble Ball were all designed by children, and some were written by them too.
KNOWING YOUR MARKETDoes your app solve a unique problem? Before the light bulb was invented, somebody had to shout out Man, reading by candlelight sucks! Figure out what sucks, and how your app can make the life of its user more comfortable.
Does the app serve a specific niche? Find a niche with ardent fans and create an app that caters to a specific audience.
Does it make people laugh? This is a no-brainer. If you can come up with something funny, you are definitely on the right track and your idea may be the golden one.
Are you building a better wheel? Are there existing successful apps that lack significant feature enhancements? Dont be satisfied with just copying what is already out there. Make something better.
Will the app be highly interactive? Lets face it, most of us have the attention span of a flea. Successful games and utilities engage the user by requiring action!
The ICT Challenge
You can design you app in PowerPoint and even make a prototype that looks like its working.
More Toast! is a game developed by a child and his dad. The idea is simple. Just butter as many slices
Your task is to come up with an idea for an App for Tudor Grange Academy.
What type of App do you think we need? How will it help students or staff? How would it make someones life better?
You can design you App on paper or you can build a prototype to show us what it would look like. There will be Period 6 opportunities to learn how to develop prototypes to show how your App would look and work. These will run all half term on Thursdays in L11.
