We wanted users to be able to get basic legal information in a quick easy way since we noticed a lack of simple legal information applications.
What it does
The app allows users to select a category of legal information and provides them with it. It also allows users to find specialist lawyers near their location.
How we built it
We used Xcode and Swift to build the application. Apple's own MapKit was used for GPS information.
Challenges we ran into
We really struggled to parse the map kit information into a form that would let us create the URL that searched the lawyer database. The initial UI also looked terrible.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
-Making MapKit work very well -Major UI progress in a short period of time
What we learned
How to use Apple's MapKit, how to use Xcode, how to open URLs in app using safari.
What's next for Law Buddy
We would like to add even more law categories and refine the UI further.
