Our habits have likely suffered due to the instantaneous impact of COVID-19 on our lives. Schools and gyms have closed, offices have gone remote, and social distancing has become the norm. HabitWise, a habit-tracking application, helps users get back to their norm while adding a social aspect for motivation. Users and their friends can share and work on habits together, adding a twist of accountability.  See the project on GitHub.

“The biggest challenge our students faced was figuring out how to build a complete and polished app from scratch in just a few weeks. Most of them only started learning Android development a few months ago! Faced with this challenge, a lot of teams were able to leverage the CodePath support network to work through their technical issues and use the product management skills they’ve been honing to figure out how to get a finished product out in time for Demo Day. As one of their instructors, I’m extremely proud of our students!”
