Seeking iOS Developer

Save to Favorites

PRYOR FOUNDATION INC

We are seeking a developer to join the Autism Communication Tools team!

Project overview:

Something Bothers Me is an iOS app aimed at giving children who find speech difficult a quick and effective way to tell others what is bothering them. This app offers children an easy way to pinpoint what is bothering them. It also lets the adults know what’s wrong and respond to the problem rather than ask a screaming child what’s the matter.

The app allows users to send a notification. The notification will have a time and date stamp so parents and teachers can look for patterns and plan ahead.

Technical Requirements and Overview:

Any developer on this project must have experience with:

  • Creating iOS builds
  • Swift

and implementing:

  • Notifications
  • Data visualization, either natively or with a library
  • Permission-based access to app configuration, such as via a password or touch ID
  • Accessible apps
  • Irregularly-shaped buttons which scale to fit various devices (nice to have)

Possible frameworks used may include:

  • UserNotifications
  • PushKit
  • CloudKit

App flow consists of three options:

  1. Select irritated body part or irritating external stimuli and send message
  2. Select "I’m Losing It" button
  3. Select "Leave Me Alone" button

Recipients are pre-configured for notifications, so the user doesn’t need to choose them each time, just confirm they want to send a message. Optionally, this configuration is permission-based, in order to both prevent its deletion and to prevent the addition of unwanted recipients.

Result, of flow 1, and possibly 2 and 3, is:

  • A notification is sent to caregiver’s device
  • Additional data is sent to caregiver’s device for data visualization

Basic interface currently consists of:

  • Table views of stimuli and conditions
  • Generic views for the body, with body parts as buttons in a larger graphic
