Studies show around 82% of all apps are abandoned within the first 30 days. Sometimes you can lean into that short shelf life on purpose.
1. CONFERENCE SHUTTLE APP
This app concept was pitched to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons for the bus shuttle service at their annual conference. At the time, they were still using a printed, fold-out shuttle schedule for attendees, which would be awkward to use when attendees are likely carrying exhibitor materials, a notebook, possibly their laptop and other paraphernalia.
Creating an app with real-time bus tracking was a perfect solution and more convenient for surgeons and other attendees traveling between their hotel and the convention center. The core of the app could be reused and easily updated for future events, making it an even better investment.

3. ART EVENT APP
As a regular at these events, I found I could really use an app that would let me quickly see where the art events were each weekend (and where), and since the Illinois Arts Council has this information (but no app) I pitched the concept to them.
The IAC has all the data needed listed in their annual directory, and on their website, but there was no way to quickly search by date or location.
This app was designed with art enthusiasts in mind. It allows users to find events by date, zip code or city. It also features a list of events for the whole year so users can plan ahead. In addition, each event has a map link and a link to the individual event website, for additional details like hours and featured artists.
4. AUTHOR WEBSITE UPDATE
A proposed update to better represent this best-selling author, featuring a responsive design and a more professional image, utilizing graphics and colors from her best-known book series. Site pages include upcoming appearances, biography, book synopses and purchase links, media info and more.
