Abstract [en]

The aim of this project is to develop an application with the purpose to help students procrastinate less and plan their studies. Cellphones are a common distraction among students today and many people find procrastination on cellphones to be a major problem. The purpose of the application is to prevent procrastination and stress by turning off distractive apps during a study session as well as offering the user help in planning upcoming deadlines and examinations. The application HappyHelper provides the user features such as blocking distracting application during a certain amount of time and a calendar for organizing studies; consequently, the aim of the project is achieved. To determine whether the purpose is fulfilled or not a user survey is required and is scheduled to be executed in the near future. 

Abstract [sv]

Målet med detta projekt är att utveckla en applikation med syfte att hjälpa studenter prokrastinera mindre och planera sina studier. Att distraheras av mobiltelefonen är ett vanligt problem bland studenter idag och många ser prokrastineringen med en mobiltelefon som ett allvarligt bekymmer. Applikationens syfte är att motverka prokrastinering och stress genom att stänga av distraherande appar under en studiesession och erbjuda användaren att planera in arbeten och examinationer. Applikationen HappyHelper erbjuder användaren att under en tidsinställd period blockera distraherande applikationer och en kalenderfunktion för att planera in sina studier; projektet uppnår därmed sitt mål. För att avgöra huruvida syftet är uppfyllt eller inte, krävs en användarundersökning som är planerad att genomföras in en snar framtid.
