[MS2_2nd Project] Bubble Life App

Project Pitch

Project Name : Bubble Life (or Spent)

I’m creating an app (prototype) which visualizes the time and money that people spend daily by analyzing individuals’ personal data such as internet searching history, physical activities and expenditure in order to show their lifestyle to users at a glance and figure out the connectivity between each data that identifies a person.
