After Covid-19 lockdown restrictions have loosened up in some states in the US, I realized how more people might need knowledge of where testing sites were
What it does
How I built it
I used Figma to design the UI and exported it over to Android Studio XML files. Then I tried to figure out a COVID-19 Testing Center API and implemented it into my app.
Challenges I ran into
This was my first time focusing on UI and working with Figma and also the first app I've made in Android in about a few years, so it was a bit difficult to relearn the interface and the code.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm very proud that I was able to learn a new way to design applications and also for making a semi-functional android app. I also typically make web applications with APIs, so this was a fun new challenge.
What I learned
I learned how to work with Figma and also learned how to implement an API in Android and making JSON calls in the Android Java language.
What's next for Test Together
Implementing Google Firebase Authentication and allowing users to save certain test centers. Also working on creating a map for users to visualize the location in relation to themselves.
