TheeOrganization plans to create a smartphone app (Fitness Crave) that will be beneficial for everyone – who loves to workout, who wants healthy meals suggestions, or who needs some motivation to workout – in general. The “Fitness Crave” app is divided into six categories: workout training, healthy meal plans, motivational quotes, music, daily planner, and achievements.

Hey y’all! Eversince we’ve learned how to use Prezi in class, I just can’t seem to get enough of it. And since, our group decided to make a smartphone app for our group project… I thought I should share my ideas, using Prezi, about the app. By the way, this is just an idea.. not the final just yet. Enjoy! (:
