We got the idea for this app when recently a GSU student committed suicide. Many people around us have personal problems that may affect their lives in an unpleasant way and we thought we could make an app that can help resolve that.
What it does
This app connects people who are not emotionally feeling very well to individuals who can help them through a one on one chat or a group chat.
How we built it
We built this app using Swift in the front-end and firebase in the backend.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into many github merge conflicts, complexity of scope of the app, UI design, and the research had to do since our app required us to research human psychology, color theory etc.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are to implement dynamic realtime content, as well as having a good UI design. Also the feeling of creating something that can actually help people.
What we learned
Some of our team members were new to IOS, so it was their first time working with IOS apps. We learned a lot about Watchkit, and also how to use firebase.
What's next for Expresso
We are planning to deploy to the app store as soon as possible.
