Jeana Goes to school and likes to help her mom make dinner, they also do other activities together like go to the park and goes with her mom grocery shopping.


After gathering the research form interviews amongst parents that grocery shop with their kids, The sketches were created based off of the idea that kids usually get entertained with their mobile devices and what better way to do so that contributing to saving money while shopping. From the sketches, it followed the wireframes, which helped developed more the usability of the app. Once the overall design was placed, the small details were then added to improve the user experience. 


The app is designed mainly for the child, But the parents set up the account. The parent creates a profile which will help save records of previous savings and the most visited store. After it is all set up, the parent then gives the phone to the child, whom will hunt the sales of the weekly ad. The app will connect to google maps to find the store and layout where the user will see the map, from there, they pick the department and select the item, the app will give you the location, regular price and sale price. The user scans the item and It the item is the correct one they collect a coin. After collecting a certain amount of coins the user can claim a price. 

The rewards are priceless, such as a visit to the park. The idea is that the users of The Sale Hunter app can save as much possible. Finally, there is a history feature where you can see your previous savings and the total of all the saving history, this will help teach kids more about budgeting.
