I am currently doing a probability unit in my statistics course so I decided to adapt the President’s Quiz for my topic. I tried many different things in this app — some that were successful and some that were not. First, I wanted to have an animated effect on my splash page. I wanted one item to come in at a time, so I used an animated index. It worked fine when I tested it on the emulator and on the companion, but not when I installed it on my phone. Not sure why. I also wanted to use a ListPicker, but I decided against that as well. So what did I do? I created a splash screen with a intro image as well as a wav file to introduce the quiz. I created a six question quiz. I used a counter to keep track of the number correct and displayed the number correct for the user at the end.
On the quiz screen, I did make it scrollable. I struggle with the layout of the apps. I like things to be spaced nicely.
I am finding it challenging for the apps to do exactly what I want it to do. I think I need to read further before I start my project so I make sure I am not wasting my time in creating something that is unrealistic.
