In an interview with MBA of Legacybase Online Magazine, Francis explained what Time App does.
MBA: Tell us something about Time App.
Francis: Time App targets students, especially in the tertiary institution who need to deal with managing lecture timetables. Often, details regarding where and when lectures will take place is written in books. Time App offers you the ability to electronically manage your lecture timetable; providing the features of registering your courses taking information like course name, course code, credit hour and type of course, creating timetable by choosing a registered course, venue, time and type of lecture. Time App utilizes local storage of devices and thus does not need internet data. As such editing, creating, deleting and updating timetable is super easy and fast. With the course of time, Time App will mutate to accommodate changes and implement advanced features such as lecture time notifications among others.
MBA: What motivated you to create the app?
Francis: I just wanted to solve a problem, and that’s what DSC teaches. Most students write timetables in their books and pieces of papers, so I thought of a convenient and easy-to-go way to help with that.
MBA: Any Challenges?
Francis: Major Challenge I have now is how to implement the notification system in the app. It kind of difficult. ***Laughs*** But well its a work in progress. I would be happy to get some reviews on that.
MBA: How can we get the App?
Francis: Kindly download it on the Android playstore via //play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.francisdeh.timeapp
MBA: Any last words?
Francis: I would like to commend the Developer Student Clubs Worldwide Management team for such a golden opportunity to us students. Also my very good friend Shadrack and all those who have helped and supported me from Day 1. I’m most grateful to them.
So you heard it all guys, once you set your mind you want to solve a problem, with determination and perseverance, you will achieve your set goal.
