When someone catches Covid-19, it is important to figure out where or who they got it from - to then hopefully isolate both. It is also very important for everyone to follow quarantine, wear a mask, and social distance. Sadly, most people still choose to not follow these guidelines.

What it does

The way the app works is it keeps daily logs of:

  • Whether you went outside or not
  • Whether you wore a mask or not
  • Whether you social distanced or not

It also shows you how many days you logged, your streak, and your regional rank.

How I built it

I used HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, with Bootstrap to ease layout, and Font-Awesome for the icons. I then used a framework called Apache Cordova to make a web-based mobile application.

Challenges I ran into

Time. What I got done with was just the basic, minimal demo that is barely functional.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

This is my first time using Cordova for anything, so I'm proud that I managed to decently import my webpage into it without much changes to the site layout.

What I learned

I learned about Font Awesome and how to use Cordova. Now I can reliably make mobile apps.

What's next for iStopCovid

Well, actually making a fully functional prototype, as I barely got finished with a presentable demo.
