UNDERSTANDING THE USER
Through the User Personas it gave me an insight into some of the matters, which were encountered by the elderly.
Furthermore, being able to highlight it allowed me to develop an app, which would have good user experience within this project. This includes, taking into reflection on potential disabilities and how to resolve this matter.
The purpose of this idea is to support the elderly who are worried and feel solitary by introducing this application, it allows them to join events and socialise and connect with people with similar curiosity. Therefore, to substantiate this, as a group I have developed an idea, which will encounter this subject.
“59% of adults over 52 are reported to feel sequestered, compared to 21% who stated they feel delighted.”
THE PURPOSE OF THIS IDEA
Besides, feeling isolated and secluded is severe as it causes the likelihood of mortality by 26%. This is inferior compared to any other ailment, such as obesity and physical inactivity.
As a result, we decided that coming up with this application would resolve the issue as through meeting people with similar interests, which is recommended by this app, within the area. This reduces the chance of developing a poor health due to loneliness as they meet new people.
THE REPORT OF THE ELDERLY
There will be a various number of events, which will be hosted, and there will be a location icon near each place. However, to discover this information, they would need to have their GPS on to track relevant information within the area. Moreover, once the user has selected one of the events that they have interests, they will receive information about the event, which they have chosen previously, such as expected number of participants, the duration of the event and the regulations of the event, etc.
The info is accurate if the GPS is switched on. Once the user clicks on the map icon of the place they found appealing, it will recommend different ways to reach the destination. For instance, they will receive information, such as the most straightforward way to reach the event and outlining the route to take.After the user has reached their destination, they will be informed with a notification confirming they have arrived in the correct area.
