With many things happening in 2020, and the Covid-19 outbreak has risen as one of the current crises that people, unfortunately deal with in their everyday lives. In order to spread the information about the Covid-19 pandemic, we created this app called COVID Care for people to utilize.
What it does
COVID Care, an iOS app, provides information about Covid-19. After passing the home screen, users will confront four topics: articles, prevention, medical info, and find a testing site. In articles, users choose from a selection of related articles to study more about the pandemic. Prevention advises the users on how they should stop the risk of spreading the virus. Upon entering medical info, users can determine whether or not they have a fever by inserting their temperature. Two buttons located on the bottom segue the user to two pages: one that gives the user a self-assessment and suggests whether or not to take a covid test, and another that provides extra info about treatments. Lastly, the find a testing site displays nearby covid testing sites to the user.
How I built it
We programmed this app in Swift using the platform XCode. By implementing buttons, labels, text fields, image views, view controllers, and the MapKit all provided through XCode, we created this app.
Challenges I ran into
Challenges included confusion with button segues, map annotation, and staying awake to work on the project at night.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud of the aesthetic look of the website, the map implementation, the health-assessment, and our time management.
What I learned
Through the course of these two days, we were able to get more familiar with XCode, to run an iPhone simulator on a laptop, and learned how to implement maps onto our Swift.
What's next for COVID Care
We would like to add more articles and other helpful resources! Maybe we could learn how to add personalized information and a login. We also desire to add more graphic visualizations.
