Students in Aberdeen are lusting over a new social planner app inspired by the seven deadly sins.
Developed by Robert Gordon University students, the Student Sins web based platform will feature seven integrated apps each named after one of the seven deadly sins.
Lust, the first app to be launched, acts as a social planner by keeping students up to date with social events in Aberdeen, which of their peers are going out and who is heading where.
Hundreds of students have already signed up to Lust, with over 30 nightclubs, bars and pubs in Aberdeen joining them to inform users of deals and events.
Fourth year International Business Management student Andrew Garden is spearheading the app development, managing a team of 20 students working on the Student Sins platform.
He said: "[Student Sins] essentially emulates the decision making process that students go through in their university life from socialising and planning nights out to budgeting, organising responsibilities, shopping and sharing pictures.
"I first developed the concept when I was at school as an organiser for students as I was struggling to organise exam dates, study plans, activities and my social life. The idea was that the student would input all of their information and the planner would bring everything together.
“During my first year at RGU I decided to take my idea forward and conducted focus groups with a team and surveyed over 100 students which highlighted that respondents were also interested in other aspects such as a night out app. From that point, I decided that the concept would cover every aspect of a student's life.”
The fully integrated platform will soon launch its full suite of apps, with Greed helping to manage budgets, Crave offering help in creating food plans, Envy a photo editing app, Wrath for creating health and fitness plans, Pride for assistance with job applications and Sloth, an academic organiser.
Student Sins is available to any higher education student in Aberdeen, and there are hopes the platform will be rolled out to other Scottish cities in the future and be further developed into a mobile app.
