I wanted to work with gesture recognition, and I wanted to create something short, fun and if expanded beneficial. Being "natural" gives me the option of so many creative ways to style my hair, so much so that sometimes I get stuck and want someone to choose for me. So I created this app to choose for me, and other people like me who don't mind being spontaneous with their hairstyles.
Most importantly, it was also an opportunity to learn. I got the chance to implement the Social framework Apple provides, UITapGesture, an UIImage view animation, and add a lil' blurred image background to my project (which I'm afraid I'm getting obsessed with).
Moral of the story? Create something that you'd want to use. Coding is already fun to me, but since I was also creating something I could relate to, I was actually sad when this project was done.
