Introduction: The existing system is the one in which many useful applications are available for a user. A user is only required to know how to operate the application and he does not need to worry about its back-end working at all.

Existing Software

In this era of applications we have applications to check our Body Mass Index (BMI), calories burned/consumed, issue an emergency alert to our relatives or friends, give useful information about hair care and skin care and many more.

Project legacy

Current Status of Project

Till now many modules have been added to the project that is needed by all people using smartphones. These modules are made in such a way that user need not to download any other app as an assistant for health issues. We have tried our best to cover everything in this app.

The project is working fine with these modules with no bug or no wrong information. There is no force close problem in the app. The app is not so heavy, easy to download for every user. This app requires less use of ram which makes it work faster. All functions used so far are working as par expectations. Emergency functions used requires balance as well as an internet connection for intimating contacts. Nearby hospitals functions require internet as well as GPS in the phone. Some functions may not work properly in some phones due to software problems.  This app works very well in version 3.0 and above.  Previous versions of Android may cause a problem for this app. We have completed our app as per timeline with most of the required functions in daily life. 

9.2 Remaining areas of concern

From our side, we tried to complete each and everything still there are some future scopes

(i) Online appointment with nearby doctors

Technical and Managerial lessons learned

Technically I have learned a lot of new concepts while developing this app. Now I am clearer about the facts in Android. It was simply a very good experience. Now I am much more confident in developing apps in Android. It was great exposure to me.

When it comes to managerial lessons I am pretty sure that the bugs I faced in developing this app are not going to occur in the projects that I will undertake in future. I am confident that if I face the same kind of bug in future I will be able to resolve it in no time.
