The winning app idea? Well, internally, it has been described as Time Out - but for doing good stuff. And by ‘stuff’, we mean taking part in experiences that benefit the community in some way; be that by doing some gardening for a local space, or having a cuppa with a lonely elderly person. Officially, it’s called ‘The Restless’ - a place for people to come when they’re itching to do something good but don’t know where to go.
To create this app in a week, we followed our usual process but compressed it. This meant that a lot of the work was being done side by side, for example, we created a non-designed app to start building the functionality whilst the designs were being created, and used hardcoded data to continue development after that whilst the APIs were being worked on.
