Our android app, named Ludidio, was a whole new exercise for me. I had never delt with any programming this high level before and had never even worked with java. I self taught myself java just like I had taught myself powershell, TCL, and most other languages. I like learning by experience. My method is learning the basics, then learning what I need for whatever application I am doing, and lastly, I test additional techniques with the working program. This was a bit more complicated learning about activities, fragments, navigation drawers, and other fun ways of implementing our layout. In this design, we have a main screen with a button to immediately implement sleep. The menu contains fragments for cue setup, alarms, data, and settings. There is a tutorial planned as well as a variety of developer testing functionalities.
Due to time constrainsts, we were not able to implement functionality for everything we wanted. Mainly, alarms, multi-alarms, and the tutorial got cut due to time constraints. We were able to get all basic functionality done for testing and demonstration. We were able to internally test it, but have to get approval from the NDSU IRB committee to test externally which has some extra security requirements. We did however, achieve full bluetooth functionality including data streaming, commands, and functions controlling specific patterns for cues. Additionally, we have data storage in place for external use of data accessible by the user. We also have implemented graphing of the entire timestamped night's data, and real time graphing to verify functionality when going to sleep for the user.
