To realize the application innovation, Dini and Wulan invite a student of Informatics Engineering Department of Faculty of Engineering UMM, Shodiq Imam Purnomo, into the team to finalize the concept.

Thanks to this collaboration, the planned application was successfully materialized. Wulan said the application has three main menus, materials, games and comics. Three main menus are packed into one application to make users feel comfortable learning majas.
