Two members of the team have been sick and contagious these days. One issue they faced is the lack of ressources as you cannot go outside to get medicine or food.
We see some area organizing around piece of paper and we have the feeling that a digital solution will help many people
What it does
Covhelp is an application that creates relations between neighbors. They will be able to chat and organize some help for immunocompromised, sick or old people to provide them prescription, food, wifi etc.
How we built it
For the backend we choose firebase as there is a big free-tiers.
Skills / competencies needed
We need people with good ideas ! Every motivated people are welcomed.
Challenges we ran into
The main challenge is to fit people needs, make an application easy to use and pick relevant services (groceries, pharmacy, dog walking, wifi etc).
A technical challenge is to make the app looks great on many different screen.
The last challenge is the submission to the apple store and google play as they don't accept content related to Covid19. It is still in progress
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud to have built an application which has a very nice UX/UI in such a short time.
