This is our overall presentation for our app 'iHomework' for the Apps for Good competition.


  • 1. iHomework By Caitlin, Katie and Sadiyah
  • 2. iHomework Who? Students and teachers What? Students doing homework When? Anytime Where? Anywhere with internet connection Why? Students struggling with homework, need help off peers Background
  • 3. You leave your homework to the last minute but then dont understand it and you have no one to get help from. Therefore you dont complete it and get a detention. Specific Problem
  • 4. How can you get help with your homework when you dont have a peer or teacher to help at home? Core Question
  • 5. You need help with your homework, you ask one of your parents or brother/sister, they dont know the answers because they havent been in your class. You can contact one of your peers or a teacher who have been in that class learning the same thing. Key Statement
  • 6. Our team iHomework, are developing a mobile app to help students who are struggling with homework to access help through their peers and teachers through the use of social networking. Mini Pitch
  • 7. Some of the things that I have learnt about my users are that they wouldnt be prepared to pay for this app, they would rather have it for free yet have Adverts. Some users said that if they were to pay for this app then they would pay 69p. They have also said that they think that it is a good idea and that they would definitely use it if it was on the market and would recommend it to other people. Summarise
  • 8. One of the most popular apps on the market is HomeWork. It has a very high rating and is fairly similar to our app. However, this app doesnt fully solve the problem, it gives resources to help you with you homework but doesnt give you easy contact to peers and teachers. This app doesnt help you as much as our app can. Our app will help you get in contact with your peers and teachers for help. It does provide resources but it helps a lot more than the HomeWork' Apps on the Market
  • 9. Our app is completely focused around homework, but we feel that our app is a more appealing way of getting help with homework through social networking. Instead Of researching for hours on end, they can just simply check their updates or classes, and see who has completed the homework that they are stuck on. Then, they could message them and the other student could use the helpful tools and resources that we provide to explain it the best possible way they can. Students can organise their contacts into different classes if they wish to. Overview
  • 10. Georgia is a 14 year old user of our app, she is really struggling with her homework and her parents cant help her, she goes on the iHomework app, looks through her contacts and sees that Katie has completed the homework. She contacts her and Katie uses the useful tools to explain it to her. Georgia can now successfully complete her homework. App Users
  • 11. Our app is designed to help you with your homework through social networking. By connecting you to your fellow students and teachers. It gives you other resources like calculators and whiteboards etc. you can make group chats with the people who are in your classes and ask them for help. You would know who to ask as you can set your statues to how you found the homework and it would let your peers know who to ask. You can make your own profile as well. Flow
  • 12. Our app collects data of the homework's youve completed during the week and at the end of the week it makes pie charts and graphs to show you the weeks homeworks. You can share theses to Facebook and other social networking sites. This way it advertises our app for free. Data, Content and Technical Feasibility
  • 13. We have planned to make our app free but include adverts of other apps. However, if we were planning to make people to pay then we would charge about 69p. Business Models
  • 14. One of the three main marketing activities we will do is to ask schools to start using it. This way the amount of users using it, will increase as well as that the school will have an increase of pupils finishing their homework on time and understanding it. Also, we are going to advertise it on other apps and advertise theirs on ours, that is if we are not charging to buy the app. Including, we could ask networks like Facebook and Twitter to promote it as we will promote theirs by letting students share things from our app on to the social networking sites.
