User settings versus Ally settings. Allies must have a picture so users can locate them, users do not need a picture for safety concerns.
Ally view. Notifications show who has requested help. Map directs the ally to the user if they accept. Timer is to ensure timely responses.
App on the phone menu. Sign up and login screens.
User view. Users can click to see nearby allies and select an ally to notify. The user can message or cancel at any time.
NC's governor passed a really shitty law that forces people to use the bathroom that matches the sex on their birth certificate. This is discriminatory against the transgender community and has made a lot of people not feel safe.
What it does
IGWY allows users with a .edu (for now) email to sign up as either a user or an ally. Users are able to identify what gender they would prefer an ally that goes with identifies. A user can find users in their area that are allies and notify whichever user they choose. An ally will get a notification when a user requests them. The ally can then choose to go with or decline the notification.
How I built it
Android Studio and Firebase. And GIMP for design :)

Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I got most of the design done and figured out everything I need to get it actually working.
What I learned
Firebase and geofire packages.
What's next for I'll Go With You
Actually getting it to work for a few users at school.
