Student’s app helps with new schedule

New program helps you know where to be and when


Knowing when classes start and end with the new bell schedule is going to take some time. Luckily, Jordan Moskowski ’21 has invented something to help us all out. 

He created the Monarch Bell Schedule App over the winter break of 2018. The app answers the question regarding class time and the basis of your daily schedule.

It’s a valuable Monarch tool that can be downloaded from Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store. It enables the average Monarch Student to enter their schedule and keep track of the class times, periods, and lunch they have. 

This app is helpful for the new schedule switch due to different times for classes. The app should ease students more comfortably into the new schedule.

Mosakowski’s motivation for creating the app was simple. “Honestly, I wanted people to stop asking me when class ended,” he said.

The description in the App Store says, “The Monarch Bell Schedule app is a simple app for keeping track of when your classes start and end at Monarch.” Students name each of their seven periods and set the app to recognize which lunch you have. The current class will light up based on what time it is.

There is also the option of changing the background color of the app to dark or light, each background corresponding to school colors. White and black, and gold and black are the two color options. To access app customization, click on the settings gear in the top right hand corner of the screen. To the left of the gear is a refresh button in case things aren’t working correctly.

Most people would take a class or course on coding due to simple interest and the time it would take. “For ninety-nine percent of things I know about coding, I taught myself,” said Mosakowski. 

Mosakowski created the app through the program called intelliJ and has only been coding for about two-and a half years. IntelliJ is primarily a text editor specifically designed for coding in Java.
