Dear Team 3,
Thank you for your presentation. I will quickly compare my last feedback to the things I see here.
To the beginning: I love your idea and am still curious to still see the first functions live in your final prototype. So thumbs up. And now to some constructive criticism ;):
First of all, I’d like to point out what I mentioned last time in general regarding the developement: PLEASE concentrate on one or two functions that you want to implement in your final prototype. And within you could also choose just one difficulty level! Otherwise you won’t be able to show us anything consistent for the last milestone.
Now I will go into the different games, as last time (https://fsln12group3.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/the-flag-idea/#comment-8):
Coloration: I now understand, that you will “only” have the learners color the flags. Will that help them to memorize the whole flag? Consider this discussion in your final paper. But for the developement this seems to be feasable.
Europe Map: I still didn’t see a thought on the solution to drag and drop issue I pointed out. It might be hard to drag and drop flags to smaller countries on a small smartphone’s display. Did you think about that? If you develop this function it will be necessary to think about this really fast. If not, you might want to consider a discussion about this in your final paper.
Memory: nothing to add.
Texturize: Still thinking about the UI and the interaction with the game. This might be fiddly for the user to clearly identify the letter combination he wants to suggest as solution. Think about this challenge and discuss it at least in your final paper.
Competitor Analysis: Your work here is really good. The arguments that you point out in the presentation seem well chosen. BUT I fear, you didn’t argue enough about YOUR app’s USP. Do you maybe have a social aspect to the app, just high-scores? Is the GPS function really such an important argument against the competion?
Developement: Thank you very much for this insight. And also your blogpost about it. Your decision to take a big part of the games logic t the server will also result in the fact, that the person who uses the GPS function abroad will have to have an internet connection. Which will be difficult at times…

Hi team 3,
you are doing good work and the app may become a great one. You already know my opinion about the value-added of the app for the target group – I am looking forward to your ideas describing how this app can be used in context and to which target group learning about the flags may be meaningful in the first place.
As far as GPS, I agree with Alex – it may be difficult in terms of using internet abroad. But first of all, I wonder why would people need GPS for this app? To check which country they are in? I guess this maybe something for very frequent travelers who travel so much that they forget which country they are currently in 😉 Or did you plan another function for GPS? If yes, let us know!
