Project Description

The app provides daily notifications of quotes, from inspiring figures. The quotes are designed to motivate the user each day, ideally before they start working, or during the business day. As there are times when any of us can be somewhat lethargic during office hours, or even running a business, it helps to recieve some encouragement when it's needed most.

By allowing the user to see various quotes from successful figures, giving them the motivation they need throughout the day, it helps them on their path of entrepreneurship. The 'Share' functionality, allows the same user to share quotes with their connections on various social networks, so that they can feel inspired too.

When the user first launches the app, there are requested to enable notifications. This is so that the daily notifications can be fired successfully, and also so that the user can receive any push notifications from the backend. The main screen shows the quote text, as well as the author text. In the top right hand corner of the screen, the user can request information about the app. The bottom part of the screen shows buttons for Sharing and Settings.

The default notification time is 9AM (in the user's local time). In order to change this, the user can go to Settings > Change Notification Time. This will show a date picker, that will allow the user to pick any time of the day. Once the user hits set, the current list of notifications are erased, and a new list is created with an updated timestamp.
