    App/Game Ideas?

    I'm in a programming class and I need to create an app for the final project. I have no idea what to do. So I come to you.

    If you have a really good idea for an app or even a crazy idea. Or somehting to help me brainstorm, a problem you need fixing that can be fixed with an app. Anything.

    Road Trip App- tells you how close the nearest bathrooms, gas stations, restaurants, etc are. Always sucks when you skip a rest stop, only to realize later the nearest restroom is 50some miles away.

    did the CyRide one ever make it? I think DH and his group were one of many to work on that.

    The road trip one is good too.

    I think an app that objectively rates women you see in a dark bar while drunk would be good.

    that shows how long before the next bus shows up where you are waiting. Real time - instead of calling CyRide.

    Oh yea, they have that one. I wouldn't be able to make it anyway because I probably wouldn't be given the permissions to all that GPS data they have.

    The Paul Rhoads Soundboard app. Include such memorable quotes as "I am SO PROUD!", "We'll hit you coming off the bus" and whatever he was yelling at the refs during the TCU game.

    They just released something like that. Only it's just online. Most of the buses have GPS now, and if you go to cyride.com/NextBus they tell you exactly how long it'll be till the bus is there. Pretty cool actually

    I think it was VACUUM!!! VACUUM and the horse you road in on. At least that's how my lip reading read it.

    Backhead

    You take a picture of someone's face and the app shows a picture of what the back of their head looks like

    This is what I was going to say lol.

    Make an app that tells you what channel the Cyclones games are on. That's a common question we get on here. Also, have it auto-update with streaming links from firstrow or any radio feeds found by people.
