King University’s Anne Franklin ’18 Hosts Senior Exhibit June 8

June 7, 2018

BRISTOL, Tenn., June 7, 2018 – King University Anne Franklin ’18 will host her senior conceptual app design exhibit, “Me Time,” on June 8 at 5 p.m. in Maclellan Hall’s Wager Lounge on King’s main campus in Bristol, Tennessee.

Franklin’s project is a conceptual app designed to help people balance work, studies, life, and play. “It is an app that helps you become accountable for taking care of yourself,” said Franklin. “Instead of having an app to schedule appointments; it is an app to schedule your downtime. It has a social aspect where you can invite friends in to help give you that accountability.”

Franklin expressed how passionate she is about the app. “This is more than just a project for school; I want this app to become a reality. The project came about when my son, Christopher, asked for help to find time to work on his artwork. He wanted something to make him accountable. That request turned into this project which has taken on a life of its own. I now have several investors from Abingdon, Virginia, and New York City who are interested in funding the app to make it a reality.”

The app’s initial concept is geared toward people who do not have enough downtime for themselves such as college students. “If people practice good habits of time for self now, it is more likely to carry on throughout their lives,” said Franklin.
