About this project:

FreeTime is an app that inspires people with activities and interesting facts to cope with boredom during COVID-19. As a Brooklyn team, many of us are isolated inside and want help to stay motivated while in quarantine. We made FreeTime to change the way our users spend their time during the pandemic.

Before we moved to remote learning, we were using the human-centered design process to create assistive tech for those with cerebral palsy. Empathy had a big influence on our team when deciding how to pivot our invention for virtual sessions. We decided that it would be useful to create an app that would help people during the current crisis.

Through our Google Slide prototype, we emulate the ideal user experience for FreeTime as a mobile app. Each user makes an account after a questionnaire, where we learn more about their interests. Users then pick a category and the FreeTime generator provides a quote, activity or fact to occupy their mind. Here, we link to Glitch websites that we coded together by making a JavaScript generator. As a group, we picked our logos from The Noun Project website and a color scheme using Adobe Color. In the future we would expand the categories, sections for games, journal entries, rewards, and add a security feature.
