Write, sketch and surf until you have a basic idea of the app you will design. It can be vague; you can tighten up requirements later on, or even switch ideas. Create a title and brief description on your comdma.com blog
I want to continue with my “Buffalo Eight” idea and design a trivia game. Users can learn more about Buffalo History and pop culture by solving trivia questions. Similar to quiz, or maybe they can play other players head to head. Questions can come in the form of multiple choice, true or false, and identification questions. Users can select question categories and submit or rate questions, as well as view leaderboards.

3. — Describe ideas by answering these questions (c) MITx15390x:
* What is the problem you want to solve
* Who experiences that problem
* How you want to solve that problem
* Why this is a better solution
I want to showcase some of the hidden historic areas of the city. This problem is experienced by people who visit who limit their trips to Niagara Falls and the Anchor Bar. I want to solve that problem by giving options of areas to visit that are nearby. (The Colored Musicians club, for example, is five minutes from the Anchor Bar.) This would be a better solution because there are several interesting places in the city that deserve to be highlighted.
