App Development Project Options

Indian Culture

The Indian culture varies like its vast geography. People speak in different languages, dress differently, follow different religions, eat different food but are of the same temperament. So whether it is a joyous occasion or a moment of grief, people participate whole-heartedly, feeling happiness or pain. A festival or a celebration is never constrained to a family or a home. The whole community or neighbourhood is involved in bringing liveliness to an occasion. Likewise,an Indian wedding is a celebration of union, not only of the bride and groom, but also of two
families, maybe cultures or religion too! Similarly, in times of sorrow, neighbours and friends play an important part in easing out the grief.

Problem Statement :

Design an Android app depicting the rich Indian Culture. Choose some Indian cultures and display pictures related to that particular culture and add some description.

Your app must have a home page and can have different pages, each related to a single culture.On each page, you must have a well detailed description of that culture like their traditional dressing style, popular foods , etc.You can include the about us page and contact us page and can give an option to go to thesepages from the Home page.



“The World Bank Group considers corruption a major challenge to its twin goals of ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity for the poorest 40 percent of people in developing countries.” In order to reduce corruption in India a group of young entrepreneurs took an initiative and decided to spread awareness and make people aware about corruption. They started an organisation named Corruption Free India (CFI). Now they want an android application that they can release to the play store to make the people aware about these activities. The application should be like as stated in the problem statement.

Problem Statement :

Design an Android app depicting the corruption activities happening in the country. Your app must have a home page showing small details of each corruption related activity. In other words your home page should be listed with all corruptions activities with title, description, image (if possible). When a user clicks on each corruption activity from the home page then he should be redirected to a page that must have a well detailed description of that activity like who is the culprit, when this occurred, where it occurred, etc. You can include the about us page and contact us page and can give an option to go to these pages from the Home page.

Small Business and Farmers

“ Agriculture remains the primary livelihood of most families in rural areas and suburban areas worldwide. Agricultural business is all about the production and marketing of agricultural  commodities through farming.”
Aditya Tiwari and Arjun Gupta started a company named ABC in 2020 in order to help small farmers, they provide technological assistance, seeds, pesticides and other farming tools at an affordable rate. to the farmers but the problem is that since they are new to the market many people don’t know about them therefore they think of advertising themself and they need a mobile application that they can advertise and motivate the people to download it. This application helps them to connect with the people. For advertisement they contact the BFXGraphics and Promotion team. They did their job well but now there is a need for an android application. Aditya calls you to help him. As a problem statement you have to come up with an Android application stated below.

Problem Statement :

Design an Android app depicting the product details that are available to the ABC company. Your app must have a home page showing small details of each product that ABC company sells. In other words your home page should be listed with all products with name, price, stock availability, image, etc. When a user clicks on any of the product from the home page then he should be redirected to apage that must have a well detailed description of that Product like name, price, stock availability, products left in stock, product image, expected delivery time, a button to order the product, a button to add the product to cart, list of similar products, warranty details, etc.You can include the user profile page and contact us page and can give an option to go to these pages from the Home page.
