Piczit

Project Summary

It started when I kept spending money buying the same stuff because I totally forgot where I put it. Piczit is an app for keeping track of where you keep you things without extra device. Use your phone to snap a picture of where you put your things and store it in the app . You can categorize it by tools, accessories, light bulbs, batteries or by places for example garage, pantry, first cabinet in the living room or etc… You can make a short note to help remind you if you want. I believe picture is one of the best things that can bring back memory.

Function:

–  Use a phone to snap a picture of where you put your stuff.

–  Store the picture in the app so it helps save time for the user to search for stuff.

–  Save the user from spending money on thing that he/she already have.

–  Save space in the house, the user will not overstuff unnecessary items.

Target:

1. Home Owner

2. Parents

3. Eldery

4. People who have a lot of stuff

Prototype:

I chose to go with simple and clean design so the user can focus on the functionality without too many design distractions. My main focus is that the app should be easy to use so the user can finish one task in less click as possible.

Outcome:

I have always wanted to create my own app that really help me with my own problem. And I found myself often buy stuff that I have already have because I could not remember where I put them. I did a research and could not really find any app that allows you to track your stuff without having to pay for an extra device. That was when I came up with my own idea of “Piczit”.
