How to Find Us
What it does
Mind the Wait lets you know once you step into a doctors office, how long it will be until the next doctor is available. The app takes into account previous data from the doctors history in order to create the most powerful estimate.
How I built it
The app was built in android studio with the front-end created in HTML and the back ended create in Java. The user authentication service occurs via HTTP request via the Credible API.
Challenges I ran into
The most difficult part was finding an intelligent way to parse the API input, as Java's input streams struggle to handle native JSON. This was also our first time creating an app in android so making the GUI also served to be a difficult challenge as well.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We made a fully functioning parsing object that is able to take JSON input and abstract it for our object model.
What I learned
How to make android apps and how to handle HTTP requests.
What's next for Mind the Wait
Adding Neural Networks and Machine Learning techniques to create the most powerful estimation of a weight time. Also, we plan to update our GUI to achieve a more modern aesthetic.
