Hello Everyone

As part of our university project we came with an idea of a health-based initiative and expand it on a Large scale, as it's known one of the most critical needs today is access to good health care.

Billions around the world, particularly around the african continent struggle because they don't have and get proper access to healthcare experience. wehave apps that let us book movie tickets and even find nice restaurants.However finding doctors is unbelievably hard. Patient records aren't maintained in digital systems and if they are most times aren't accessible.

It's accompanied by an app which will help patients get help and medical care in an instant manner and integrates a USSD system for remote areas with no internet connection.

Health-based initiatives and startups can address alot of issues plaguing instant access to health care in Africa.

Healthcare is undergoing a major change and smartphones will be a big help in health related problems.

help us with funding this project any amount will help. Link below

Will this app work on both iOS and Android? What about older OS systems which are still widely used in Africa, such as Windows Phone?

Analytical Mind,

There is no strict definition of an analytical mind. One thing is for sure: if you have an analytical mind you are able to think, observe data, remember and basing on these activities, resolve problems.

Unfortunately, this is the most crucial and needed skill of a good software developer. Why “unfortunately”? Well this means that not everybody can become a good software developer, even if they really struggle. Having analytical mind is to a big extend an inborn ability and in addition to this

2. Team eargeness,A good software developer is not a person who sits for the whole day in front of the computer and codes. If a project is supposed to be successful, the communication inside the team is crucial. Exchanging thoughts, ideas, knowledge and experience can boost the efficiency and the quality of the solution. A developer who is not eager or able to communicate with other team members will not be able to fit in the team and in the process of developing software. I am aware that there are many very introverted developers who are doing really a great job and produce high-quality code. Yet in Agile, which is more and more common amongst IT companies, pure coding is not enough. Communication inside a team is one of the major keys to success.

Which are the best resources which help learn how to create an app?

Oct 20, 5:05AM EDT0 Reply

You need to learn the programming langauges, networking, algorithms and other couple of desclipne you learn on the way, learning is never over so we Just learn as we go but those above are the cornerstones

Oct 20, 6:52AM EDT0 Reply

Have you ever considered selling your idea as a whole to a larger more well-known company and staying on their team?

Oct 20, 4:53AM EDT0 Reply

I have, but you see these companies can’t buy Just an idea they need to see an actual implementation and actual traction, and this is what we are about to do. 

It makes more sense if you have a working system under implementation rather than Just the idea

Oct 20, 6:12AM EDT0 Reply

Is your app meant for a single platform and thus for limited people to use?

Oct 20, 4:17AM EDT0 Reply

we’ll start for a single platform for now, most people are android users so when we get a good traction we hope to expand to other platforms

Oct 20, 6:48AM EDT0 Reply

What tools do App Dev novices should have at hand?

Oct 20, 1:55AM EDT0 Reply

If You want to be an android developer you need to learn the programming language ie Java for instance, you need to have an android studio

for ios developer you need to learn objective-c, swift and you need to learn the desclipne. In my experience it’s more challenging than android development.

How safe is your app in terms of user privacy?

Oct 20, 12:40AM EDT0 Reply

We Plan to implement some very strong encryptions

Oct 20, 6:45AM EDT0 Reply

How do you think this app will impact society?

Oct 19, 11:33PM EDT0 Reply

Fast accessible healthcare i mean the user can be able to have a conversation with a medical assistant immediately and the USSD system we plan to implement is to help users in remote areas with no access to internet to be able to acquire the service

Oct 20, 6:14AM EDT0 Reply

Have you attended any well-known events that could help you gain exposure for your crowdfunding sites?

Oct 19, 3:07PM EDT0 Reply

Just a few

Oct 20, 6:40AM EDT0 Reply

Have you considered trying to make a viral video on YouTube to gain followers and investors?

Oct 19, 3:01PM EDT0 Reply

Thanks for the advice, will get to this

What got you interested in the field of creating mobile apps?

Oct 19, 2:08PM EDT0 Reply

we are Computer science students it’s the sort of thing we do, but we plan to take an approach differently on health sector and smartphone use is rising rapidly we think we could leverage that to combat the helath sector

Oct 20, 6:17AM EDT0 Reply

How do you troubleshoot issues when building an app?

Oct 19, 11:45AM EDT0 Reply

Issues can be resulted due to various factors 

1.Poor Memory Management, this can be resulted due to poor programming and device fragmentation so in this case i’d go back to my source code and check where the error is

2.Poor Network Management,A significant number of devices rely on network access; for example, social media, news apps and even games. They’ll often need internet availability to access data and third-party services. In these apps, poor network management can cause app crashes. unfortunately for us we plan to implement a USSD system which which help in the factor though it’s has limited features, we Plan to do better as we head on

Oct 20, 6:40AM EDT0 Reply

How would you feel if this crowdfunding campaign doesn't meet your expectations?

Oct 19, 10:53AM EDT0 Reply

We’d feel terrible as anyone would, but with the inputs we getting from various people on how we could do better i think we will meet the expe

Oct 20, 6:44AM EDT0 Reply

When and how did you think of this idea?

Oct 18, 9:51PM EDT0 Reply

As part of a final year project, we thought we could come up with something a bit different than usual. so we came with an idea that directly impacts the society and can somehow improve the sector.

so we thought it would be good if by the time of the presentation we should already have a working system and app in place, good traction. we would get good audience

Oct 19, 4:42AM EDT0 Reply

Are you working on this health app with a team or alone?

Oct 18, 9:04PM EDT0 Reply

we are a team

Oct 19, 4:36AM EDT0 Reply

Where did you find out about the concept of crowdfunding?

Oct 18, 8:22PM EDT0 Reply

I posted it on facebook a guy named Andy Matrin got to me said he is interested in the idea asked about it then said he knows a good platform that i could share my campaign across.

Who are the pioneers in App Development?

Oct 18, 7:36PM EDT0 Reply

It's a team of Six Computer Science students

Oct 19, 4:33AM EDT0 Reply

Did you graduate from any type of educational background?

Oct 18, 3:28PM EDT0 Reply

Am going for a graduate Year Bsc in Computer Science.

Oct 19, 4:33AM EDT0 Reply

Do you plan on monetizing the app with in-app advertising? 

Oct 18, 1:22PM EDT0 Reply

No, we will Just go with the normal payment procedures.

Oct 19, 4:29AM EDT0 Reply

How can you guarantee that people's personal data won't be compromised?

Oct 18, 10:05AM EDT0 Reply

there will be strong rules and regulations on patients data, and the data will be heavy encrypted against external intrusion

Oct 19, 4:32AM EDT0 Reply

Can you elaborate on the "strong rules and regulations" you refer to? Rules and regulations don't stop hackers unfortunately as i'm sure you know as CS student. What languages are you using and what type of security you plan on implementing?
