I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and really work on something that is applicable in the real world.
What it does
The app monitors your speed and a certain algorithem will look at how your speed changes over time, if there is a sudden stop (and no movement for 5 minutes) it will send a text to a friend telling them to check up on you and provide you their location.
How I built it
I build it using Xcode and Swift with Node.js as the communicator between the app and the server.
Challenges I ran into
A lot of the challenges I ran into were trying to make sure that the data that was collected was the right one.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud to say that it works and cant wait to show it off.
What I learned
How to communicate with Node.js better, making sure to really understand the intercomplezity of connections in an app.
