  14. 14. Trash Tracker • Trash Tracker is a way to make the lives of trash men and house owners easier. • With the app you can just put the trash on the curb on any day, go on the app and push the “Take Out My Trash” button, and your local trash men will be notified knowing that on their pick-up date they will go to your address and pick up your trash. • It makes it easier on the trash men because on Monday morning, it’s exhausting having to go to every house in the area to get trash that might not even be there in some houses. • This is helpful because this can reduce they amount of pollution as well. By making sure trash isn’t just sitting on the curb for a full week maybe even two, we are reducing our carbon foot print. By: Xavier Manning
  15. 15. Newz Connect Problem: • The problem that our app deals with is the fact that most people in communities don’t learn about problems or events until it spreads around through gossip. Solution: • Our app will allow those people to have quick access to the hyper local information to check up on their loved ones or learn about fun events. By: Mika Mathurin
  16. 16. InstaTrainer Problem: • America has an obesity problem. Obesity means having too much body fat. It is not the same as being overweight which means weighing too much. • Another problem with the American diet is it is way too many much high calorie foods. These foods often lead to diabetes, heart problems, and many other diseases. Solution: • InstaTrainer will help you lose weight and build your body. • When you put in your info, a schedule will be created. • Or if you want to just want to work out you can click on the particular part of your body you want to work on. It also will give you nutrition suggestions, daily workouts, music suggestions and all necessities to do a particular workout. By: Miles Peterson
