Please note

This article is an entry in our AppInnovation Contest. Articles in this sub-section are not required to be full articles so care should be taken when voting.

Overview 

This application idea comes under the category All-In-One=Entertainment Category. wonder, why this social app comes under Entertainment. The reason is Volunteering means may not need to be a full time volunteered worker. Volunteer work is a great way to help other people while having fun in the process. Actually, there’s nothing more fulfilling than giving others a helping hand. There are many projects that you can volunteer for. 

This app would do a ton of good for the world while operating on relatively low overhead. This app targeted for the Lenovo Horizon 27" All-In-One® Tablet PC.  

 Introduction 

This application is the first one in apps platform where no other platforms hasn't yet. We targeted this app for Windows Platform. Volunteering is doing something for a good cause without anyone tell you.            Volunteering for Entertainment accomplishes a meaningful impact on a truly global scale. It addresses the needs of the communities in need not by reaching out to them directly, but as an aggregate for more specialized help-the very beauty of crowd-sourcing, and an effective  App. 

Background  

 Example or Analysis: At the present days Most of the youth has tablets and smart phones it became a essential thing in their life. On other hand, Every Youth has mind and tendency to help others like needy child, to help beggars, public cleanliness etc... but they have fear about family and have No time in this fast life.so, Why Can't we bring the Volunteerism as Entertainment in their life? so, the awareness for the social service will also increase rapidly... 

Having access to the OV platform from their device would give them added flexibility, enabling them to go into the platform even when they are in front of a computer. Similarly, it would give the individuals managing OVs in a development organization the opportunity to check on tasks' progress, send messages to OVs or post new assignments even when they are away from their offices. The app could be written in free software so that it could be also be used by any Volunteering organization and adapted to their own purposes. It is expected that many more people and organizations would participate in Online Volunteering programme with this kind of application. 

Design 

Here are just some of the fun projects that you can volunteer for or organize yourself: 

Volunteer for different communities:

This app works as a single portal for different social communities like Agaram Foundations, Udhavum karangal ,Sirpi, and many more will come on future. 

Picturing Volunteer  Activities:  

 There’s nothing like volunteering to document other people’s volunteer work. Make volunteering look like it’s fun to do and share it with communities. 

Social Survey Activities: 

 Taking feedback and suggestion from common people through online in a public places and share it with communities. 

Online Volunteering Activities:

Create a blog, podcast, video, or social networking profile for a nonprofit organization or grassroots movement. Create a virtual global team of Idealists who support one another's efforts to do good wherever they are in the world. 

Skill Games:  

Like Puzzle, management skill development games, Quiz etc...  

Features included: 

Taking into consideration the capabilities of the AIO, VE  incorporates the following features; 

Multi-touch interface: The app takes advantage of the touch capability of the AIO allowing user/users to play games like puzzles.

Multi-user interface: One of the nice features of the Lenovo Horizon 27" All-In-One® is the large screen. VE  takes advantage of this feature to provide a collaborative multi-user experience in games only. 

Multi-Gadget Experiences: This app can be controlled using smartphones as  controllers.
