Winning Apple's Swift Student Challenge

I can't believe my little project was accepted by Apple! The whole process was a lot more fun. It got pretty stressful near the end as I had to work on a laptop to finish up everything, comment my code, patch any issues.

I decorated my award paper with all the magents you get in the same box.

The source code to the Swift Playground is linked below, along with the essays in a textfile. Check it out!

Version 4.0 of yourRanney

Last time I redesigned the Home view and the Assignment view. This time, I redesigned the other three views that felt lacking after the new improvements in version 3.0. The Schedule view changed the least out of the rest, but improvements were still made.

Your Classes view is gone now! No need to fear, the Account view is here. The Account view previously very plain and had little use. Now your classes, advisory, and other app settings are all located there with an even easier to access grade switch.

With the new Inbox view, you can see a full log of your previous notifications, rather than seeing a “new grade added” and then never seeing it again after you click it. Now you know when those notifications come in, and exactly what they are. That’s right, you can now click the notification, and it will tell you what “2 new assignments” you actually have rather than making you figure it out yourself.

The entire notification backend has been completely rewritten, and has error correction. Previously, if something went wrong, the entire operation for sending you a notification didn’t work. Everything is optimized, faster, and more sizable across even more devices.

The app runs asynchronously in even more areas than before. There is better CPU thread management everywhere!

Also, I added a new notification option: “1 Minute Before” - This was created with online schooling in mind so you’re always ready to join that Google Meet call. Be sure to try it out.

Releasing when we get back to school. Releasing very soon. Stay safe everyone.
