We use and interact with our phones at anytime and at anywhere. However, if our phone loses 3G or LTE connection, their functionality drops significantly. We wanted to take some of the functionality that people assume requires a 3G or LTE connection and migrate that to a platform that only requires SMS services.
What it does
FindMyFam gives a user directions based off their location data to either another FindMyFam user or their home location. It does not require cellular data anytime during it's operation.
How we built it
FindMyFam uses Twilio API and offline location services to communicate between our backend server and the user.
