Amazing things Kazunori's made
Although Teplo project is my biggest achievement, I have built some other projects before.
After I worked as a mechanical engineer for robotics, I started to learn mobile app development because I believe it is really important for executives to understand how current/trending technology works, even if they don't actually write codes.
I developed Android and iOS app called "SMTT(Speaking Master for the TOEFL Test)", which is to help TOEFL(Standardized English Test for non-native English speaker) test taker. I developed this application based on my experience of learning English as a second language.
The app has been downloaded by over 200,000 users all over the world and is helping people who want to get high score in the TOEFL and go overseas to realize their dream. 20% of revenue from the app is donated to educational charity to help people who need some help to get good education.
