Today I present an app I made for a school mini company. I created this app for my friends who started up the business. You can find out more about why this company was created here.
The company is called Carded. In short, it’s a student discount card. The guys who run the company were already dispensing the physical printed cards, which the students of their school can show at checkout when buying a slice of pizza, or a new t-shirt, with the participating businesses. They came forward to me knowing I have a little passion for making apps, and asked me to create them an app, but weren’t so sure on what it should be able to do.
I came back to them after many discussions and sit downs, to create the Carded App.
Here are some screenshots:
So why did they want an app?
Well I know for myself, as a student, there’s things you never forget to bring, and well, there are things you do!
Things you don’t forget:
Things you do
Basically everything else.
So I came back to them and said “Hey”, I could setup an e-card phone app! And it all started from there.
You can use this card at checkout.
The student has access to their card in app, and can display it to the worker at the till to obtain their discount.
The app gives information about what stores you can save with and contact information with them.
All businesses were contacted again and asked if they would like to participate with Carded Business Tools. This way, a worker can scan a card using the same Carded App, to prove if the card is legitimate, or not.
The app knows if an account is a student account or business account and opens the appropriate screens.
Test it out
Carded is a pay to use service, but I have asked them if I could give you guys access to a test account to try it out.
So if you would like to test this out, download the app on iOS or Android (links above) and sign in with the following credidentials:
Email: [email protected]
Note: This account has “Test Account” written all over it so it won’t be of any use, especially if you aren’t living in Ireland
Let me know what you think. I’ve had an absolute blast making this app!
This was only possible with Thunkable X
This app is only available in Republic of Ireland. So apologies if the app/play store links above don’t work.
