When disaster occurs, the wifi and data maybe shotted down, but there would be SMS services. So we build SMSConnect to utilize the SMS to acquire internet information for map navigation, google search and send SOS signals to twitter.
In a world in which over half of all mobile phones are not "smart", SMSConnect aims to bring the benefits of grouped global and regional communication to those without such privileges at a nearly negligible cost.
What it does
It uses twilio to process the SMS message and then send twitter,map and google API to get the information result and send back via SMS message.
How I built it
twilio, Twitter API, google map, search and Bluemix
Challenges I ran into
