Title: Help Staying Connected while Social Distancing
- Children and teens get bored staying inside the home all the time.
- Facebook and other social sites do not provide the correct logic and tools to search for appropriate friends having similar background, interests, and hobbies.
- My app helps the kids target and connect with other friends matching their interests and background including:
- Age Group
- Country location
- And need like playing games, somebody to talk to, having study friends, watching a movie
- The app prompts the user to provide information on their background profile including their age group, country location, language, gender, availability
- It also prompts the user for their needs and interest like playing games, somebody to talk to, having study friends, watching a movie
- Once the information has been gathered, an algorithm matches the user to other users with similar needs and interests
- The algorithm will send a message to the users asking them their interest to be matched with the user.
- The user data is persisted in a database for matching with other users.
- Xcode version 11.4.1
- Swift programming language
- iOS simulator
- The app will be very useful during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
- Kids (and even adults) feel alone and bored.
- It is a challenge to search for friends having similar interests and needs
- As such, this app will be very useful and widely used to search for and connect with friends having common background and needs.
