This project is an App that was developed for my graduation project on the Digital Design Program at Pontifical Catholic University of Parana.
The main ideia was to create an App that could help people who want quit smoking. So I bring some concepts of gamification to engage the user and make this process more fun.
First of all, the user should answer some questions about his addiction, so the app will setup the "game" based on him. After that the user should setup how many days he wants to play and choose his "Dia D" that is the day that he will start stop smoking. Then he will share this on Facebook or Twitter.
One important function, that is the two alarms that the user should set one in the morning e other on the evening. The first one will ring everymorning to remenber the user all the people that support him (with data collect from "likes" on Facebook) and how many days he is without smoking.
The second alarm is how the app receives the information if the user have smoked or not at that day. So every evening this alarm will ring asking if he have smoked or not, and he can share his answer on social networks too.
The functionality for engaging people is a reward system with trophies. So after some determined hours and days without smoking, the user will recive trophies.
People can also manage their progress, with approximately data of their health and body evolution. Besides, people can see how much money they already saved without smoking.
I make this process more connected and social, because the support of friends and family are very important during this struggle to overcome the addiction. So all the process can be share on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Besides the user can see how many people are the same numbers of days without smoking, helping on the mental process to understand that you are not alone on this "fight".
(Sorry about the rough text, I'm writing a better other one that will explain more clearly and with more details how the app works)
