This was developed entirely by a team of students in Mr. Lasser's Advanced Object-Oriented Design computer science class this year. The students, who had no previous app development experience, started with just an idea and have worked continuously to develop the product into its current state by creating a plan, dividing the project into components, researching how to incorporate various functions, coding, debugging, recombining the components, testing, and preparing for the current release.
The team is very proud to share its hard work and hopes that this will be a useful tool for the Mt. Hebron community.
Below is a message from the team with more information and instructions for how to install the app. If you have any
questions, feedback, or comments, please speak with one of
the team members (Benjamin Bellis, Matthew Chow, Matthew
Kim, Kamyar Rasouli, Xan Schroeder, and Theodore Tamaris)
or Mr. Lasser. The team’s email address is below as well.
Hi Mt. Hebron,
We've got some great news! There is now a Mount Hebron HS App available to anyone with an Android device! You can check if it's an A or B day, find morning announcements, browse the Mountain Newspaper feed, look at school maps (with classrooms, bathrooms, and more highlighted), access links to all teachers' emails and sites, and see their schedule with location each period! All you have to do is click the link below and follow a few steps:
1. On your Android device, go to [Settings] > [Security] > Check the [Unknown sources] box and hit "OK" when prompted. (This step is necessary because the app is still a preliminary release and not yet available in the Google Play Store.)
2. On your Android device, go to the following link and download the apk file (the screen will turn grey and you will need to select the blue "download" button): http://bit.ly/mthapp
3. When the file has finished downloading, click the notification in the drawer to install the app.
4. Accept the permissions.
5. Enjoy the app! (You can find it in your app drawer like the rest of your apps)
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, or if you find a problem, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org (<< It's also in the "About" tab of the app)
Please keep in mind that this is a preliminary release, and that we have more updates on the way with more features. If you would like to help develop this app (for Android or iOS), take Advanced Object Oriented Design! (See Mr. Lasser in room 146)
