Veelog is an Android application created to monitor and track data regarding maintenance for an individual's personal vehicles. For instance, most car owners change their oil every 10,000 miles or so. The application will help track this data, allowing users to identify their own range of how often a service needs to be completed and provide helpful information when the need comes around. The goal of the application is to provide a platform for individuals to record, use, and save information relevant to themselves as the owner. By ensuring that there is space for the data to be recorded and properly tracked, car owners can take initiative in providing preventative maintenance for their vehicles. The idea for the application originally came from observing many individuals who keep a notebook in each of their vehicles for recording and keeping track of maintenance schedules manually. Veelog is a solution that keeps all maintenance manuals in one place, with the additional benefit of calculating upcoming services automatically. Veelog users can also make customizations to their profiles including custom services that are specific to their own needs. The target users for Veelog are individuals who want to be proactive in servicing their vehicles. The application requires frequent checking and regular updates to stay current and provide accurate information for upcoming services. Being proactive about vehicle maintenance provides long term benefits such as preventing serious car trouble, which ultimately results in saving money and staying safe and makes the application worth the extra attention. Ideally, individuals who have not previously been proactive about vehicle maintenance will also be encouraged by the convenience that Veelog provides.

The Coffee Hutch project is derived from the field of Computer Science and consists of a website, a database, and a mobile application for Android devices. This three-tiered scheme is designed to support a point-of-sale payment system to be integrated with a standalone product dispensing machine. The website contains landing pages which provide navigation and functional capabilities for users. The site also features a variety of PHP web services which communicate with the database using SQL commands. The application, programmed in the Java language, makes use of these services in a simple, utilitarian design aimed at modification of user data stored in the database. This database, developed with MySQL and managed with the phpMyAdmin application, contains limited information in order to maximize speed of read and write accesses from the website and Android app. Together, these three components comprise an effective payment management system model with mobile capabilities. All of the components of this project were built at no cost. The website hosting service is free and the third-party services required (such as Paypal payment services) are simulated. These simulations allowed me to demonstrate the functionality of the three-tiered product without the necessity for monetary supplication. This thesis features every aspect of the development and testing of The Coffee Hutch software components. Requirements for each function of the software are specified in one section, and they are aligned with various pieces of the code in the source documentation. Test cases which address each requirement are outlined in another section of the thesis.

I have created a business plan for the idea of the development of an iOS mobile application called MoveGroove. MoveGroove plans to be a simple, yet engaging application that is designed to maintain a runner's desired pace through music modulation. MoveGroove will allow an individual to set his or her appropriate desired running or jogging pace, and will adjust (speed up or slow down) the music to match their desired pace. It will not be focused on direct competition, but rather, progress. MoveGroove is catered to all ages and types of individuals, whether the individual is a marathon runner or a power-walker through the neighborhood. This iOS application will allow individuals to remain focused, entertained, and engaged. This business plan will allow the reader to understand the foundation of the different types of operating systems resulting in the reasons for creating the application, MoveGroove; how to use the application to provide the mode effective results; and how MoveGroove will contribute to the mobile market. Additionally, within the business plan are categories that allow an individual to determine and compare its growth and marketability against other competitors in the market system. Ultimately, within the current mobile application market, there are over one million applications \u2014 the number of applications is continuing to increase each year. Applications are becoming a large part of the mobile phone. This particular application, MoveGroove, will provide a new way in the mobile market that will increase the productivity of individuals while producing a unique blend of recreational and goal-setting values as they exercise.

Multiple sclerosis is a neurological disease that attacks the nerves in the central nervous system of the brain and spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis is a neurological disease that attacks the nerves in the central nervous system of the brain and spinal cord.  The severity of multiple sclerosis varies based on the each person and the progression of the disease. There are roughly 2.5 million people that suffer from this disease that life is changed dramatically from being diagnosed with no main way to ease into adjusting to a new lifestyle. The increase of people that are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and with a majority of those people being diagnosed in their early 20’s, there is a need for an application that will help patients manage their health. Multiple sclerosis leads to a lifestyle change, which includes various treatment options as well as routine doctor appointments.  The creation of the myMS Specialist application will allow patients with multiple sclerosis to live a more comfortable lifestyle while they easily track and manage their health through their mobile devices. Our application has seven components that all play an important role in adjusting to the new everyday lifestyle for a patient with multiple sclerosis. All seven components are largely intertwined with each other to help patients realize patterns in their diet, sleep, exercise and the weather that causes their symptoms to worsen. Our application not only connects to a patient’s doctor so that there is full access of information at all time to the doctor but provides beneficial research to help further the understanding of multiple sclerosis. This application will be marketed and available for purchase to not only patients but doctors. It is our goal to lessen the burden of a new lifestyle to a patient, create constant communication with one’s doctor and provide beneficial data to researchers.

The areas of cloud computing and web services have grown rapidly in recent years, resulting in software that is more interconnected and and widely used than ever before. As a result of this proliferation, there needs to be a way to assess the quality of these web services in order to ensure their reliability and accuracy. This project explores different ways in which services can be tested and evaluated through the design of various testing techniques and their implementations in a web application, which can be used by students or developers to test their web services.

CDA: Career Development Application

Description

CDA is a mobile application that helps students, specifically those without a mentor, break into the competitive investment banking industry. Investment banking is arguably one of the most competitive industries to break into because it is widely viewed as the premier finance career available out of undergraduate school. The industry is unique in the sense that there are many unwritten rules on how to break into the industry. The large investment banks receive tens of thousands of applications every year, but only an extremely small percentage of those applications are viewed. This is a problem for a majority of students, who believe that simply having a high GPA and a passion for finance and submitting an application is adequate to get into investment banking. Many students who successfully make it into the industry are provided with programs and mentors to teach them everything necessary to do so, but I have noticed that there are many other qualified students that are not given these resources and are, accordingly, not as successful getting into the industry. This application is designed to provide some of the custom mentorship advice necessary to get into investment banking. I will approach this project as a business venture and will develop methods to monetize the services this program provides.

Moving into the Digital Age: Creating a Digital Presence for Alpha Homes Management, Inc.

Description

Businesses stand to face many uncertainties from the moment they start up to every moment in between. A business can try to recognize them and plan ahead, react to them

Businesses stand to face many uncertainties from the moment they start up to every moment in between. A business can try to recognize them and plan ahead, react to them as they occur, or be rocked by a black swan they never saw coming. How a business deals with unforeseen events can increase its potential for success or failure. With this in mind, there is no better bridge between the here and now and the future than planning for change in order to move a company toward preparing for change, adapting to change and achieving optimal results. Interested in taking a step toward the digital age, Alpha Homes Management, Inc. (Alpha Homes) sought our help to explore ideas and options to take their company to a new level. This Barrett Creative Project was centered on designing a system for Alpha Homes that will replace their outdated paper-based system with a more digital one. This aligns with the project also featured as a capstone project as required by the information technology degree expectations. In supplement to the capstone, and for the Barrett Creative Project, the final product was presented to the owners of Alpha Homes Management, Inc. to be utilized by the business. The end goal is to provide a platform which provides a paperless environment for documentation and bring the company a step closer to having a robust internet presence. Now that the web-based application product has been created and presented, the testing phase can now begin to evaluate its efficacy.

Portal: An Information Hub Application for Parents of Autistic Children

Description

Mental illness has always been a stark fact of life, whether it affects people directly or indirectly. More and more research is now showing that mental illness is becoming increasingly more widespread in the U.S. This poses a serious problem to our society in terms of treatment of mental illness, as well as the costs that are involved with treating those who are affected with different disorders. According to the CDC's (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network, about 1 in 68 children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). A large number of these children are given psychotropic medications when there is no real proof of their efficacy. Our children are our society's future, so how can we aide parents of these young children to ultimately benefit their future? As a result of my research in the gut-brain connection, I have developed an application called Portal. Portal will serve the parents of children with autism in assisting with their daily lives and teaching them about the most up to date research. This application will work in conjunction with thesis material developed in the Visual Communication Design program to create a well-rounded approach to incorporating knowledge of the gut-brain connection in everyday life. Portal will have a variety of capabilities including that of autism related news, diet plans, schedules, community resources, and medication planning. There will be a daily tip or reminder to incorporate knowledge of the gut-brain connection in daily life. This can be something as simple as a reminder to eat vegetables to a fact about the research. The main goal of Portal is to assist parents in adapting to a lifestyle with ASD easier and healthier for both parents and children alike.

In this thesis a community-based ride sharing mobile application, Ride Devil, will be introduced and created to provide services for communities such as Arizona State University and its students, faculty, and other affiliates to find safe rides around campus because campus population problem exists. This causes increased transportation costs, decreased parking space availability, and more transportation issues. The Ride Devil application itself is based off on the ride-sharing concept of transportation as introduced, above. Students, faculty, and other university affiliates will drive their own vehicles and use the Ride Devil services in order to coordinate pick-ups with members of its community. Not only is this form of transportation more cost effective than competing transportation models, taxis, but it also promotes safety, community, and educational assistance.

Evaluation of Multiplayer Modes in Mobile Apps

Smartphones have become increasingly common over the past few years, and mobile games continue to be the most common type of application (Apple, Inc., 2013). For many people, the social aspect of gaming is very important, and thus most mobile games include support for playing with multiple players. However, there is a lack of common knowledge about which implementation of this functionality is most favorable from a development standpoint. In this study, we evaluate three different types of multiplayer gameplay (pass-and-play, Bluetooth, and GameCenter) via development cost and user interviews. We find that pass-and-play, the most easily-implemented mode, is not favored by players due to its inconvenience. We also find that GameCenter is not as well favored as expected due to latency of GameCenter's servers, and that Bluetooth multiplayer is the most well favored for social play due to its similarity to real-life play. Despite there being a large overhead in developing and testing Bluetooth and GameCenter multiplayer due to Apple's development process, this is irrelevant since professional developers must enroll in this process anyway. Therefore, the most effective multiplayer mode to develop is mostly determined by whether Internet play is desirable: Bluetooth if not, GameCenter if so. Future studies involving more complete development work and more types of multiplayer modes could yield more promising results.
