My pitch is for a group work app. It is a complement and reworking of the Google Suite of apps.
You can find my full pitch here.
I decided to do a group work app because of all my experiences working on group projects in the MET program. There are already a lot of programs that are good, the Google group of apps, but it can be very annoying to switch between different apps. My app would streamline the process.
I think the strength of this app would be that it would work for a lot of different students because I have based it off my own experiences. It would be applicable for a lot of different students. It would be very helpful for post-secondary students because there tends to be a lot of group work and not necessarily a fixed space, but middle school/high school students could also make use of it. The market research indicates that there could be good revenue potential from this type of application, especially if Google decided they wanted to develop it, since they already have many of the applications, as well as hosting abilities, and would be easy and quick to develop it.
The weakness of this app is that it is not super innovative because it is a reconfiguration of existing programs instead of something completely new. Additionally, the outline of the prototype needs some extra details to ensure its smooth operation, as I’m sure that there are both coding and configuration aspects that would need further refinement.
