Allergy Season Notifier

The idea behind this application is simple: notify people of upcoming allergy season. Some people might be allergic to a certain flower pollen, to exposure to direct sunlight, to dust, to certain types of foods or products. Base on geo-location, time of year/month/day, place to eat notify people of impeding allergies or to take their medication accordingly. Also allow people to specify existing allergies if they know them.

  • Requirements: Table of allergies season depending on the country ;
  • Programming Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate;
  • Designer Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate;

Commuters Application

There are a lot of commuters these days (from students to business people, from working people to travellers) and they all need to get at their destination on time. Imagine a mobile application that syncs your alarm clock with the bus/train/subway/tram traffic schedule or accordingly with the car traffic. If the traffic has a good status (not too crowded or overcrowded) it will let you sleep more. If you get an important e-mail with a meeting it will sync with the traffic and let you know exactly when you need to get out the door to be on time for the meeting.

Options like the ones below must be available:

  • today I would like to take the car/bus/train/subway/tram/walk ;
  • legal holidays to let you sleep more;
  • routing options;
  • automatic e-mails to the people attending the meeting to let them know you are running late.


Enviromental Bulletin Board

Bus stations, airport waiting areas, or any similar areas tend to be boring. The idea is to provide a bulletin board in those areas, which displays certain useful information like: air quality, time to next bus/airplane, temperature, news, interests points in the area and other information. Bonus: bulletin board is a large touch screen which also enables collaborative games.
