Android App recreating people’s quick communications using voice
Calling is too old fashion for this advanced social world and sometimes texting just doesn’t get the job done well enough. ListenApp is essentially a walkie-talkie that a user can install on their phone. It allows for simple quick direct voice messages which make it much shorter than a call and much quicker than a text. It will run on my server making it internationally available. The main feature which makes it different than texting and even Yo or whatsapp is that it is all immediate; when a voice message is sent, the receiver’s phone will automatically vibrate, show a notification and play the message out loud. If it isn’t convenient for you to receive voice notes, it can be adjusted with the default phone volume. This means that if the phone is on silent, the voice will be diminished while still receiving the notification and vibration to alert you that someone sent a voice note.
These following scenarios are just a few of the many daily examples that would simpler if used with ListenApp. Imagine how these situations go using text or calling. Texting on average takes a minute or two so if you need an immediate response, it usually just isn’t convenient. Calling is the alternative option, but it just takes more effort. ListenApp falls right in between texting and calling and just ends up being the most comfortable way.

iPad App helping students organize large essays with interactive notecards
Let's take out the tedious parts of writing an essay and bring term papers into the 21st century! This app lets you create notecards with topic sentences, points, illustrations (with images! videos coming soon...), citations and explanations. You're able to organize the notecards by color and move them around the screen to help layout your essay.
The data is backed up to a cloud so don't worry about losing what you've written. Once the notecards are done, the app will create an outline based on the order you define and if you're happy with the outline, the app creates the essay (all you need to do then is to write the transition sentences) and the citation page which you can export.
