Abstract

The main objective of this project is to provide a simple but effective fitness tracking application. The application tracks activities such as running, walking or cycling. Gamification is core of the application as the user is able to earn experience points for competing in different competitions made by other users. The concept of the competition is quite simple in that the user selects one of the challenge activities from a list and sets specific criteria that others must comply with in order to win the challenge (for example complete 5km run in 30 min). By completing the challenges, the user earns points and competes for a higher position in the leaderboard.

The main purpose of this application is to encourage outside activities such as running, walking and cycling. The project was developed using Android Studio IDE, Xml files to design the UI layout, and Java as base of programming language. The application uses a non-SQL database Google Firebase hosted online to store, retrieve and process data of user’s fitness activity. The connection online database is implemented via configurations in the project and methods for retrieving, sending and processing the data. The actual mobile device or emulator will be used to test the initial functionality of application.
