Mobile Applications for the Wellesley Community
|Happy Blue is a Positive Psychology App intended to reduce stress at Wellesley. Students should use this app when they feel stressed to take a break.

|Bake & Barter is an application designed to facilitate the baking process at Wellesley College. Baking, or cooking, on campus can be really difficult because you often do not have the ingredients or supplies that you need, you do not have a good way to dispose of leftovers, and you may not have the baking knowledge that you need. A baking culture does not exist at Wellesley, and there is currently no way for student bakers to connect with each other. The goal of Bake & Barter is to serve as a resource to connect bakers and create a baking community. Once bakers are connected, they can share ingredients, supplies, recipes, and advice. Ideally, Bake & Barter will be used to enhance the student baking experience at Wellesley.|
|Taste Buds is a mobile social web-application focusing on trying to enhance the Wellesley College students’ dining experiences. The application has a number of features that promote this more social approach to dining including: checking in, reviewing food, sending messages, checking menus, being notified when a food you like or would like to avoid is being served, etc. Have a good time eating and socializing with your buds!|
|Wellesley Loop is an app that allows you to conveniently access and track information about the Wellesley community that is relevant to you. Through Wellesley Loop, you can track specific terms and receive notifications through text or email when there are events or news items related to those terms. Wellesley Loop allows you to stay in the loop about things that are important to you and keep connected to the Wellesley community.
|Wellcome is a social platform that offers more options for people to meet new friends and talk to each other outside of the classroom. We believe that a collision like this could spark interesting thoughts and maintain friendships that could otherwise be ruined by spatial boundaries. Gathering students and faculty to have lunch or dinner together, or planning events would be casual ways to get to know other people and learn about new things outside of your daily routine.
|Spam-A-Lot is a mobile app that streamlines the spamming experience. After the extinction of paper “spamming”, student organizations on campus are posting spam on several different social networking portals in the hopes of getting word out about their events on campus. The multiple spamming environments (emails, Google groups, social media networks, etc.) are overwhelming, difficult to navigate and easy to overlook - a problem that affects not only the organization hosting the event, but also peers looking to attend events around campus. Spam-a-lot makes it simple for users by bringing event searching and spamming into one platform. All events posted by student organizations are easily navigated, searched, and filtered by users. This application combines aspects of Twitter, Facebook, Google Calendar and Groups to create a unified events forum.
