Project Progress Summary

Our team has completed all of the core functions and 80% of the sencondary functions. We have successfully launched our app on the apple store and is ready for download. We have done 2 User Testing(UT) and a survey, we will enhance our app with user suggestions for a better quality. We are confident that we can achieve the end goal on time with the revised schedule.

Project Highlights

Positive Highlights:

  • Successfully accepted by apple store
  • Sponsor highly satisfied with our App Design
  • About 50 downloads currently and still on-going.

What unexpected events occurred?

  • During iteration 13, our source code and some project file were lost due to an accident. We have learnt our lesson and to have better version and change control.

List of requirement changes:

  • Removed smart recommendation version 2 of having a algorithm, stay with version 1 of map view recommendation.
  • Dropped notification in-app function due to lost of private key hence can not generate certificate.
  • Dropped Rating and Conflict Mediation under good to have function.

Team Reflection

1.Risk management such as version and change control is very import in this projects, and is a skill learnt benefit us in our future career.
2.Everyone has a skill that each of us can learn from, by learning from one another and working together as a team, only then a task can be done at its best.

Indivisal Reflection

1.Gao Hai Long: Through developing the application, I have learnt the full development cycle for a real life app and also the use of external APIs to support various functional requirements of an App. This will be of great usefulness for my future carrer and it is a solid prove for what I have learnt for the past three years in SMU.
2.Garry Quek Jian Zhang :Regular testing is important so as to reduce additional time spend on debugging components from previous iterations. Reducing task spillover is essential to manage our implementation.
3.Zhang Yu Zhe : Keep constant update with our sponsor and align his requirement with our progress to avoid sudden changes. Project management is not easy especially when there is many changes, this is a good learning experience for me.
4.Zhang Xiao Yu : Using a new programming language has been quite a challenge. However, Through this project, I have learnt how to create an iOS application. It also helps when I have my teammates helping and guiding me along the way. Besides, as interactive designer, I learnt that communicating well with back-end coder is important as well as the standardisation of how data is manipulated.
5.Liu Jia Meng: From acceptance to midterm, I was able to complete a variety of tasks of iOS app development. Through the process, learning a new coding language is daunting but fun. And I am happy that finally I made some achievement. I am very thankful for the teammates that I am working with, on how I can reply on their individual competencies to achieve a good application.
