Many people want to be more confident and social but they don’t know how to do it. By assigning users with tasks, DOmInaTe hands individuals the steps they need to take charge and DO IT in an unforced manner. You can dominate!

Everyone yearns to be more confident and more social but most individuals are clueless when it comes to approaching their aspirations. When confiding in Google, people are returned with an unrealistic list of qualities they should magically have like a positive mindset, but never actually obtain a list of practical steps they can take. It is easy to say, one needs a positive mindset, but how can one create that? Thus, we created an app that allows users to take small steps in becoming ideal versions of themselves.

DOmInaTe aims to solve several problems individuals face by assigning users with tasks. DOmInaTe hands individuals the steps they need to take charge and DO IT! By allowing users to proceed at a comfortable pace DOmInaTe succeeds in aiding users build their confidence in an unforced manner.

The users of DOmInaTe are assigned several tasks organized into a series of levels. Users can then complete these tasks at their own leisure. This app allows people with social anxiety, introverts, or simply people who are bored to have some sort of structure helping them make a healthy change within their lives at a pace they are comfortable with. DOmInaTe only shares feasible tasks with its users in order to ensure that we are meeting our target markets needs and wants.

At first, we had difficulties understanding how to overcome the errors that we received on Xcode which made it difficult to debug our code- something we would have to do in order to progress. When searching for online resources such as Youtube tutorials, most of the resources utilized a more dated version of Swift. Because the tutorials did not match the version of Swift we used, some of the functions and syntaxes shown in the videos could not be used in our code. In order to overcome our difficulties, we looked at StackOverflow and Treehouse for debugging advice and read and not skip over the message on Xcode explaining the error. Similarly, considering we could not employ the code found in Youtube tutorials, we decided to program our app more visually through the utilization of the storyboard.
