FAM

a social-media app for family

Fam is an android application that is made for an Android application development class. It's a utility app that helps connecting members of busy families through out the day. It is a central hub for family communication, allowing family members to stay up-to-date with one another without having to open multiple applications and social networking sites. Connect calendars to coordinate schedules, post messages to a central board, swipe gestures for immediate one-touch notifications, share photos, organize check lists, and constantly remain aware of each other’s whereabouts. Simple, quick, and intuitive. Fam’s comprehensive list of communication tools and utilities ensures families stay organized, updated, and most importantly, connected to one another. Fam is an app built by me with a partner.
