One App… One Community… One School…
What is MySchool?
The year is 2020, and there appears to be an app for everything. From travel to entertainment, the list continues to expand as new apps hit the global market every single day. MySchool intends to simplify the application market, specifically for college and boarding school students. Why install a calendar app and a food app when you could simply install an app that does both? MySchool is a four in one application centered around convenience, specified to the college or boarding school you attend by providing students with a simplified yet efficient application with one goal in mind: improving way of life.
The Four Core Tabs:
Accessible, Intuitive, Convenient
Feature #1: Calendar
MySchool’s Calendar tab is equipped with school events and sports matches uploaded by the school itself. Students have the ability to incorporate their own personal schedules onto their calendars: from class times to extracurricular activities. The user-friendly interface also includes a Task Manager feature: a highly requested “To-Do List” tab allowing students to organize their assignments and activities on a daily basis.
Feature #2: Budgeting
From a study we conducted amongst 100 boarding school students and 100 college students, 75% of students claimed to have never “managed their own money before attending boarding school or college (respectively). Keeping this statistic in mind, our team has worked tirelessly to incorporate an intuitive budgeting feature into our app. The Budgeting tab allows students to have their first experience managing their own money, displaying their allowance/income and each purchase made. Students may set daily, weekly, or monthly allowances, allowing them to limit spending and keep track of each and every purchase.
Feature #3: Food and Restaurants
The Food and Restaurants tab screams convenience. Not only does this tab operate like traditional food applications such as providing menus and locations of local restaurants, but the experience is specialized for the student. MySchool will notify its users of various wait times, allowing students to see when and where they can eat in between classes. Students can see which restaurants tend to be more student-friendly, and can even place orders or make reservations through the Food and Restaurants tab.
Feature #4: Social
The Social tab incorperates some of the most excitiing features of our app. It first comes equiped with an annoncement inbox, allowing students to send and receive all school messages. The Live Chat feature allows students to communicate in real time: enabling students to ask questions, plan events, or simply invite students over all in real time. Finally, the Snap Shot feature allows students to send small snapshots to the entire community—virtually working as a party tracker. Students will be able to visible see where students are engaging with one another.
