Today we are going to be talking about task management, focus timer, and study aide app Study Bunny. This adorable app is designed to help children both young and old learn how to focus their time, take breaks when needed, and manage an ongoing to-do list.
When you open the app, you are greeted with a Tamagotchi-like grey rabbit. In the upper right hand corner, you have several options to choose from. You can start a timer and change the amount of minutes for which you want to focus. Tags can even be added to the timer to further categorize your time spent in the app. For example, if you want to keep track of how long you are studying for your science test, you simply select the color you want to associate with this task and then label the time.
Coins are earned for focusing for the full amount of time; pausing or stopping the timer will cause the user to not earn anything for that session. The coins the user earns for focusing can be used to purchase items for your bunny’s room, such as clothing, decorations, even a pet panda!
In the To Do portion of the app, users can create a list of tasks they need to accomplish, reorder them by priority, and check them off as they are completed.
For users who want to create study materials within the app, there is also a flashcard creation option. Users can create several different study decks, so math, Spanish, and english vocabulary can all be kept separately and accessed when the user is ready to study. The user simply taps the card to check their answer and marks it as either correct or incorrect. At the end of the deck, the percentage correct is displayed and then the player can look over all of the cards at once to see which ones they got wrong.
