The idea was that I would finish the GUI design before the exams, unfortunately due to many other deadlines I didn’t quite finish it. Now I have finished it, I also examined it with test subjects. But I didn’t get much more feedback then last time. I wanted to test on my iPad, instead of the simulator, but due to a glitch I wasn’t able to. This will be fixed next week during my meeting with my advisor. I am also looking into JSON now, I hope before the meeting I will have successfully pull data from the REST server. I have some example code, and I also want to work with synchronized objects. But that part I have still to figure out how that exactly works. But normally this should be dealt with before the meeting on Thursday. After that we can hopefully start with the important stuff.
The things that yet have to be done:
-Testing the application in the field: Does it all work (does the GPS move with my position)
-Pushing messages to the devices
-Updating users GPS location
-Decision system, who will get a notification
-Making the application run in the background, making sure iOS doesn’t shutdown the application
Below you will find the screenshot of the direction text view. The results of the GUI testing will follow.
