DryerBro: Cause College Is Hard Enough
Laundry is the bane of every college student's existence. DryerBro aims to make living in a house with four barely breathing roommates a little more bearable.
The app is simple, and effective. Users simply set the iPhone on top of the dryer, select the "bros" to call or text when the dryers done, and start the app. DryerBro utilizes the iPhone's accelerometer to detect the dryer's movement, and when it stops moving the app calls or texts the "bros" you selected, alerting the load is done.
The creators of the App were all "bros" at Ohio State enrolled in the same Capstone course, and decided to submit this idea as an alternative project idea. It got approved, and 10 weeks later DryerBro was finished.
The app works. I tried it. Where was is it five years ago when I started college? This is what the App Store, and iOS is all about, finding solutions to everyday problems. I'm positive this is what Steve Jobs imagined when he first dreamed of taking over the smartphone world.

. Pretty hilarious. Also, if you're dumb enough to leave your iPhone at a public laundromat then you deserve to get it stolen. And someone should slap you. And spill hot coffee in your lap. In fact you're probably not in college anyway, cause no one that stupid should be allowed to waste their money at an institution of higher education.
specifically mentions not to leave your phone unattended in a public place. This is made for those with in-house laundry capabilities.
