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.

What's next for Omar Said Location

I am not sure at the moment.
