Spreading awareness about coronavirus is the need of the hour. Thus , i created this app to update people in India about the situation in their area.
What it does
The app tells the user the number of cases in their particular selected state along with the individual details of the cases reported.
How I built it
The app is built in Kotlin using android studio IDE. It uses CSV files from a Kaggle dataset updated every few hours. Various columns are read from the CSV file and the data is displayed.
Challenges I ran into
The main challenge was finding the data source. It was due to unavailability of the API of Indian statewise data , i had to use static CSV files.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
By developing this app , i feel proud that i made a small contribution in spreading awareness.
What I learned
I learned a few new technical things like reading CSV files in android and some more.
What's next for Covid19india information
Next , i'll do the following things:
- Implement map view to show marker where the cases are reported
- Fetch data from covid19org API rather than using and updating the CSV files manually.
- Adding a news activity to the app to fetch latest news about coronovirus.
