Need help in developing an Android App for a pro bono cause

Hi ,

I need to develop an Android APP for a pro bono cause. This is to help people living in landsacpes which are adjacent to forest areas and involve wild animal sightings. THe intention of the app is to prevent human animal conflicts by alerting people of wild animal sightings .

The app should:

  1. Read GPS location sent via SMS by forest guards on animal sightings in a location
  2. When the person who received the SMS alert reaches near the location which is indicated by SMS, a pre recorded message should be output
    e.g: "Leopard 1km ahead in , Please take a different route"

This is very crucial for school buses operating in such areas.

ANy ideas on how to implement this app using MIT APpInventor will be of great public help

Thanks & Regards,

Some advice:

A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor's Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook ... the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book 'teaches' users how to program with AI2 blocks.
There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:
How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: .

Also do the tutorials to learn the basics of App Inventor, then try something and follow the Top 5 Tips: How to learn App Inventor

Welcome Santosh.

There are examples of something similar in the MIT gallery. Perhaps you can adapt one of the aia's to your needs.

From another topic:

  1. Use Google to search how to make such an app. You want to know all the logic and algorithms needed.

  2. Learn AI2.

  3. Use what you have learnt in Step 2 and apply it to Step 1.
