The rules of the app are pretty simple. When you use the app, you’ll receives a virtual seed. The user must complete a daily walking goal in order for the the seed to be watered. When the the seed is watered consecutively, the seed grows from a sprout, then to seedling etc. If the user doesn’t walk consecutively, a message will pop up that you seed has gone elsewhere to find love. 🙁
This was a super fun app to work on. It has also allowed me learn more and get dive deeper into SwiftUI. It has been a while since I created a game or an app with game elements in a while. In my opinion game development is pretty difficult. There are so many moving parts. Working on this app was fun though. Here is how the app evolved within its 3 weeks of it being made.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
