Before development on localFix, our plan was to complete an unfinished project originally developed for Airborne Sensor called "Eagle360". It was handed down to us by its original developer Andrew Forber and renamed as GeoRef. It was a standalone application that syncronized GPS with recorded video for navigational purposes. After careful consideration the project was sidelined due to its confusing code base and lack of documentation. However, we still wanted to create something that involved mapping, which led to the development of localFix. One of our backup ideas was to create an application that alerted the user when their device required internal repairs, but was far beyond the scope of our abilities. We worked with trying to solve the core pain point, which was getting your phone repaired. Ultimately we decided on a web app that allowed a user to find a local repair shop based on the type of phone they needed repaired, and book an appointment all in the same place. In the environment of the COVID-19 pandemic our work was done entirely remotely, requiring heavy use of online meetings and group texts. Unfortunately this isolation created many additional challenges and miscommunications, resulting in the project being behind schedule; challenges we are still facing to this day.
- Searching for a repair shop by the brands they service and plotting them on a map.
- Requesting an appointment with a specific shop describing the issue with their device, and alerting the shop owner.
- Allowing a shop owner to view different appointments and confirm, deny, or cancel them and alert the customer.
- A shop owner can register their shop into the system, which allows it to be searched by customers.
- Customers can leave reviews for the shop once the appointment is completed.
