Abstract

The idea for this app came to me when I was reading an article about a young girl who had come up with the idea for nail polish that would change in colour if the person wearing it had been spiked. The article got me thinking, how can we use people’s mobile phones to make them in some way safer when going about daily life, I specifically thought mobile phones because it’s something people nearly always have on them where ever they go. Further I thought, it’s got to be something that users don’t consciously have to be using for it to function correctly, something they can have set before they go about their day and not have to worry about remembering while already out. The main reason and focus behind the idea of this app is based around the user’s security and personal safety.

The aim of the project is to develop a mobile messenger application that utilizes an Auto Message feature where the user can allow for, and set a location to a specific WI-FI network or multiple networks. For example, a user’s home WI-FI network can have a location set to “home.” When the user’s phone automatically connects to an activated WI-FI network the app will implement the Auto Message feature and send out a templated message, the message will be sent to chosen groups or individuals. The message will be based on the locations that have been set for the specific Wi-Fi networks, and what Wi-Fi network the phone has connected to (“work” “home” “college” “Johns house”) the templated message may look like this (“user-name” has arrived at “set location” or “Paul” has arrived at “home”). As specified in the background, the main overall goal of this app is to achieve something that positively contributes towards the safety of the person using it.
