I am a final year student at Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. Passionate about creating digital products that can make life of the users easier. You can look at my design portfolios on Behance and dribbble here.

Students love to bunk their classes, don’t they? Well, being an engineering student, I know how we like to skip lectures for the subjects that don’t spike our interest, and utilize time in other ways. But this habit soon becomes problematic when our attendance nears the threshold and we pray not to be in the list of debarred students. So, I tried solving it and thus devised a solution which can help us in meeting the minimum attendance criteria.

In order to get an insight, I started looking for similar applications over the Internet and started assessing the features that they might be lacking, some of them…
