Not very useful right now, but a good idea
Good idea but it needs some work. There aren't enough options. When more options are created it it should ask you questions like "deciding what to wear? Deciding what to do today? Deciding what to eat? Etc." and then you can pick what you're thinking of wearing, etc. because right now the options are kind of random and disorganized.
also it would be cool if each user could input their preferences first because I know people who would wear shorts even if it was 20 degrees outside so we should get to say what we like at certain temperatures. Also, there should be more color scheme options.
Needs work - but read the developers story on Huffington Post
Hey Tywan - read your article on Huffington Post. Good on ya! I'll give you my .99 for your drive and hard work. App needs work and you should reach out to the community for suggestions. Put one of your options as feedback and listen to what people say, unlike the professors you reached out to who responded to you telling you you couldn't do it.
Downloaded after reading your story on Huffington Post. The idea and design of the app is great. Wondering if there will be updates or additions layered on later? I hope this isn't the last we hear of you!
