Summary

This app is a replacement for the Clue/Cluedo paper detective notes into a digital form, as simple as that. I made the project public in-case others found it useful which many did.


Post Mortem

This is a personal project, as when playing a game of camp cluedo with family I found it hard to read my notes, So I looked for an app. Which there were some for android, but none for IOS which most of my family uses. The app was based on an android app which I used for a bit, it was simple and I realised I could make similar app in a short period of time. I knew it wouldn’t be hard and could be done in a few days. It went rather well, I didn’t run into any major problems which was a nice change.

While this project was meant to be just for me, I have since decided to remake the project and plan to release it to the Google Play Store in the near future. The reason I’m remaking the project is because it is incredibily similar to its competitors on the market and I want my version to stand out. Most other apps on the market for this game were a bit crowded, had ads and didn’t look all that great. I aimed to make a modern looking app that was easy to us. I feel I succeeded as the app is one of my most popular projects as of writing.
