Remember you are the Nut!

TTYL is a hands free mobile app that provides safe driving for all its users. TTYL also encourages users to promote the app to other people and gives them an incentive for doing so. TTYL is available in both iOS and Android platforms.

Did you know that there are 1.6 million crashes each year caused by texting and driving? TTYL is here to solve that problem.

TTYL addresses this problem by creating an app that promotes users from texting and driving.

We had difficulty making the iOS version of the app using Swift

From a young age, Gisela was drawn to science and technology, which is why she decided to apply for the Girls Who Code Immersion Program. She has benefited greatly from this experience and discovered a new love for programming. In the future she aspires to use technology to make headway in future technologies. Our app has the potential to be an influential tool, and she believes it is important to use technology to improve the world around us.

Chanel found interest in technology by watching movies like ‘Hackers’ and the ‘Internship.’ She liked their ability to solve analytical problems using computers and programming. She found out about Girls Who Code in late sophomore year, and took a risk and decided to apply. She is grateful for the awesome experience Girls Who Code showed her. TTYL is important to her, because as a new incoming driver, it would be nice to have an app that can help prevent her from texting and driving.

Up until this summer, Sneha didn’t know what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She liked math and science, but didn’t know what to do with the two. Through Girls Who Code, not only did she find a passion for computer science and app-development, but also met some of the most amazing people- from her fellow girls who coders to Megan Smith, the CTO of the United States of America. TTYL is an app that had to be made. Being a teen herself, she knows distracted driving is a major problem, especially with the time teenagers spend on social media. TTYL is the perfect app- it’s the app that teens want to download for hands-free driving for themselves.

Camille is a high school junior, who would love to make a change in this world. She was intoduced to coding by GWC. Coding is something she would’ve never took intrest in if it wasn’t for this amazing program. She enjoys lacrosse and learning. The idea she helped create for the app came from her experiences with someone on their phone while driving. This app is important to her because of this situations. It’s also important to her because it casts a light on a known topic that people often times look over. Bringing awareness by making an app will catch this generations attention and hopefully will stop the problem.
