We thought about the senior citizens in our society and the fact that smartphones aren't really made out to be conveniently simple for them, especially when it comes to keeping a tab on the medicines they take, pills and syrups alike, on a daily/weekly basis!
What it does
We decided to create an app that not only does all of the aforementioned( keep track of all medicines and keep getting reminded about them) , but also one that would let them keep tab of their favorite 5 contacts (say their grandchildren and children), and call the emergency number 911. This app would act as an ASSISTANT to all old people who wouldn't have to spend hours and hours trying to figure out how to do some of the most basic things that they need on a day-to-day basis!
How we built it
We built it using a robust back-end, a simple-yet-sophisticated- Material Design-based UI, and of course by using Android Studio and Java.
Challenges we ran into
We had some problems with the front-end, but our back-end was sound.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The idea that we decided to build something that impacts people's daily lives, specially since Healthcare is such a major aspect in people's lives.
What we learned
We learned a lot of stuff, especially mention teamwork!
What's next for medSchedulR
We will expand on a lot of functionalities and UI features within the app to make it a major assist app for senior citizens.
