MDoctor: The Ultimate Doctor for your Cell Phones

1) Overview:

Every day, the technology trends change and thereby changes the way to optimize the technological advancements. The mobile phone markets are booming and so are the apps that are built in thousands of quantities for multiple purpose and agendas, may it be for your business or for your personal use. So, it’s like where there are apps, there are slow-mobile-speed. Sounds familiar, right? Of course, it’s an everyday story, to be precise, a “complaint” from our cell-phones who run out of space and memory. Whenever you try downloading an app from Apple store or Playstore, that annoying message pops out saying “You are running out of memory!”. Or say, whenever you try clicking candid moments with your friends, your phone buzzes you up with this message which says “Sorry, you are running out of space”. It drives you nuts, I’m sure.

So, to help your cell-phone out of this mess and getting it out of the “I.C.U.” mode, mDoctor app is on a rescue mission. I am sure you might have tried and tested many junk cleaning apps for these problems and it’s all in vain. But, let me tell you how is our doctor gonna help your cell-phone breathe some fresh air and function properly.

MDoctor is an app which is built dedicated to the core issues a user faces with his mobile phone i.e. cache problems, functioning of your APK files, your cell phones running slower than a snail, optimization issues, RAM issues and many more. This app will help you scan and remove all these problems in a single go. Let me introduce you to this app along with its functionalities in detail.

2) Challenge:

The main challenege that we faced while building this application was writing the code of “Listing all the applications i.e. both system apps and user apps”. Also, once the listing was done for all the applications residing in one’s mobile phone, accessing these apps and stopping them was equally challenging. This was because, there are system apps for which permissions are required to be taken from OS or the app itself in order to access them and perform any functions related to the same.

3) Designs:

M-Doctor

Features:

1. Junk Cleaning:
mDoctor has this feature of Junk Cleaning which is basically working in two steps. The junk cleaner will help you detect all those cache data, the APK files which are obsolete, the apps which are running and also the background running processes and services. It also detects the empty files and folders created by your OS. After detection, this moves to the next step which is cleaning of all these detected junks and frees your mobile to an extent. It will also take care that no files are deleted wrongly.

2. Phone Boost:

It detects all the apps which are taking unused space in RAM and kill them to clean your RAM and boost the speed of your phone. It will significantly increase the speed and response time because these junk uses your memory space, OS and even RAM which slows down your phone and even sometimes lag in responding to the user-requests. Just a single click and you’ll improvise your phone to a greater extent. It will free the RAM’s un-necessary usage by any apps. Just a single tap and voila!

3. App Manager:

This is one of the main features as this app manages to create a list of all the installed apps and APK files too. With this feature a user can create a backup of an app, delete the APK file for the same and even can uninstall the application if not required.  Basically, it will help you remove all the unwanted and useless apps that have been feeding-off your phone memory and RAM till now, thereby freeing phone’s storage space.

4. Battery Optimization:

Battery as we all know is always on our nerves. No matter how hard we try to make an optimized usage of the battery, it always runs out of charge. The Battery optimization feature detects all those apps which are creating an excess load on RAM usage and consumes a high amount of charging and stops them right away. This helps a cell-phone to extend the battery life. It even helps your battery from being over-charged or over-heating. It will display the charging status and app’s message on the lock-screen while it is in charging mode.

5. Mobile Statistics:

It shows current battery percentage, stand-by time, temperature, RAM usage, storage status, download and upload bytes. Cools down your phone temperature and reduces CPU usage by stopping apps that cause device overheat. As well as extending your battery life!

This app also takes care of all the junk notifications you get and sweeps out of your phone. It prevents all those trash notifications from eating up your cell-phone’s efficiency and slowing down. Your phone will be free from any such annoying notifications.
So, this is all about an app which will really help your cell-phone to overcome the major issues.
This app is supported in every Android devices. It’s been published and deployed on Google Playstore.  Download

JOKAAMO: Services at Your Doorstep

In a tech-savvy world, why travel an extra mile when you have an all time companion at home? Jokaamo is like a personal assistant who can run your errands. Not literally, but it can bring problem solvers right at your doorstep.

2) Challenge:

When the clients came to us, they wanted a source to reach out to the common man. There are hundreds of applications where a tap on the screen can solve your problem within minutes. However, the clients felt availability was limited to metro cities. Makers invested more in metro cities as compared to others.

3) User story:

Here lies the origin of Jokaamo. The client wanted to make things readily available to everyone irrespective of their location. The concept seemed intriguing to us. The idea of connecting vendors directly with the customer as per the need sounded novel. The meeting involved noting down all the requirements and prioritising accordingly.

4) The Process:

We planned to deliver an Android and iOS application to fulfil the client’s aim. The app enables people to avail day-to-day services in a few clicks.
We decided the flow of project:-

Concept:

The story behind the name of this application is interesting in itself. The client wanted to connect to the Indian audience at large through the services yet stay alienated from using Indianised vocabulary. Hence, the term Jokaamo is derived from the Indian terms ‘Jo Kaam Ho’. So when reading together, it is called Jokaamo.

Designs:

  • Mock Up: mockup-app
  • Web:website-design
  • App:jokaamo

Features of Jokaamo:-

  • The home screen of the application takes you through services at large provided by the application.
  • This includes business, events & weddings, personal services, health, home services, lessons, hobbies, beauty and repair & management.
  • The facilities of arranging for a dance/ yoga instructor or hiring a wedding planner can be availed at home through online booking.

For Provider:

  • Providers can register themselves and add the following description to give an overview of their product: About Me, My Services, Offers, My Gallery. Price and more.
  • Provider can post multiple services in various categories setting a relevant price.
  • The specification along with relevant pictures and discount if any lets customer book services on the go.

For Customer:

  • The customer needs to pay a minimum booking amount to avail any service.
  • Customers have the liberty to cancel the booking before the offer gets accepted by the provider. Such a cancellation stands invalid once the provider accepts the booking.
  • Appointments with people can be rescheduled.
  • In case, the customer is not satisfied by services, he can send a request for the same and USE the service again.

Posting a job:

  • Customers have the option to post a job in the portal as well. As soon as such a post is made, providers registered in the application will receive notifications.
  • The notification system widens the reach of such job posting, thus getting you prospective bidders.
  • Customer/provider can then hire one of the bidders.

Chatbox:

-Once a person is through with booking, he is entitled to the chat option where he can exchange messages with the provider.

-The chatbox is built according to user convenience.

-Pictures, contact and other files can be sent via attachments.

This was the key problem

3) The Result: The end result of this whole process was more than wonderful. In the end, we successfully executed designing the Android application within a time duration of 50 days. Also, we successfully designed the website along with admin panel and web-services within the time duration of 90 days.

Mentrio: A global community of alumni! Find the right Mentor

Students after finishing their schooling often gets ambiguous about which course to study, which university to pursue higher education from , what to expect in the coming years, etc. These are very relevant questions to rise in the mind of a young man who is moved out of his comfort zone to face the world. Any wrong decision can throw him several steps back with a total loss of progress and motivation. Hence, these questions and doubts need to be addressed and evaluated effectively. The choices you make now are mainly going to shape the rest of your career and consequently life. Thus, it is of extreme importance to get right information and counseling before heading anywhere. A well informed student with the organized purpose and expectations ultimately makes big.

Times like these bring into picture the worth of a mentor. A mentor is a protective guide who listens to you patiently and counsels you with his enormous experience what he thinks suits best to you. He makes sure you get what you deserve and minimizes the gap between you and your goals.

Who could be the best people to mentor young minds other than people who have already been in the shoes few years back? The alumni who have already walked the path and know the hurdles; their vast knowledge and perspectives are surely going to help heaps to this generation and more.

The big question is to connect the alumni around the world; to fall them within the reach of students and bring their valuable experiences and skills to the table. This gives birth to the idea of mentrio.com.

Mentrio is a platform created by the team Engineerbabu with the aim to bridge gap between a mentor and mentee. It opens a great opportunity for all the mentees seeking wise words and direction to be guided by noted alumni who are few clicks away. Mentors have the opportunity to share their learning and experiences and earn some money in the process.

MaalGaadi – Intra City Logistics and Fleet Management Solutions

Maalgaadi.net – A true story of moving ahead.

Everything today depends on logistics. Although we live in a parallel universe of the internet, where everything transits online, the physicality aspect of transit is impossible to ignore. It also plays a very important role even in businesses of any kind today. So, what’s the fuss about logistics? Logistics has inevitable challenges – availability, negotiations, timely delivery, and pickup, etc.

How about an app which makes logistics free of all the botherations? Maalgaadi is the answer to that. A one stop solution to all the headache of transportation.

What could happen when a bored job drives you to create something unique? Something like Maalgaadi.net happens. It was Anirudh Garg’s and Saurabh Raj’s brainwave. The duo from Indore identified a gap in the prevailing transportation system. A gap in terms of all the hassles one has to go through for a mere transit of goods. They decided to tackle the inconvenience and created Maalgaadi.net. They wished Maalgaadi to be the Ola of transportation and today it has come to hold that true.

“A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step” – Chinese proverb

Although success didn’t come that easy. Initially, Anirudh and Saurabh had to face the headwinds. The criticism was to such an extent that they had to shut down the operations within two days of the initial launch. But facing this failure induced a new motivation in the young entrepreneurs. They didn’t only came through the obstacles but also created an example by getting perfectly into the legal framework hence not bypassing any laws.

Next big thing was awaiting this success. Anirudh and Saurabh found investors for their project. Moira Group, one of the bigwigs of the city, agreed to invest in their company.

How Maalgaadi works:

maalgaadi-appMaalgaadi enables a driver to pick or dispatch a shipment by getting the information from the customer. It exactly works as Uber/Ola or Jugnoo.

The pickup and dispatch information is given by the customer either on the website or over a phone call.
This information is then used by our team to get the pickup and the drop location with customer’s name and contact.
The driver who is in or around the pick-up location gets the lead on the app.

Wagging Pal -The New Pet Finders Experience!

Just like a great business idea, the idea for a cause also evolves from a mind which wants to create a difference. The only difference between a business idea and an idea for a cause is the feeling to do something for someone not as fortunate as us. But this ‘only’ difference makes the biggest difference, and this it what makes us hail cause. Today people around the world are working for millions of causes sizing from the tiniest to as big and evident as – climate change.

Well, this story is not about a beautiful cause. Someone from a small island country in the Caribbean – Trinidad & Tobago approached us with an idea to create an app for stray dogs, an app that would help in getting homes for the homeless canines. Digging deeper we got to know that these guys were prompted to do so after the government of Trinidad & Tobago in 2014 passed a Dangerous Dog Act. This act identifies a few breeds of dogs which are aggressive and attack people resulting in fatal or serious injuries. As a result people (majorly irresponsible) started to abandon their pet dogs. This abandonment rendered a lot of dogs unsheltered and homeless and forced them to survive on the mercy of nature like many of their counterparts elsewhere in the world.

Whats it all about?

WaggingPal.com came into existence after implementing all those feelings into a model. And today they are available as an app too, making the cause handy with people of Caribbean countries. WagginPal collaborates with the pet shelters and kennels and helps them promote the pets to the people. The app connects the users to these shelters, and the users choose the type of canine they want to adopt.

Let’s have a look at the app:

On the homepage, there is a list of pets that are up for adoption. There is a single profile slideshow that enables the user to browse through the profiles. A user can tap the ‘heart’ which goes red if he/she likes the pet or can tap the “X” (cross) otherwise. A button on each slideshow profile quickly brings up the full profile of the pet which would allow you to take a better decision. If the heart is tapped, it will be added to a list of favourite pets.

In the individual pet profile, there is an option “Adopt Now” tapping which the user will be directed to a page where he/she can fill out a small form with personal details like- name, email address, telephone number, mailing address. They can select a date and time they would like to be visited by the shelter by tapping another option ‘calendar’ on the same page.

The authority to approve or turn down an application is held by the super admin post which the application is sent to the shelter in case it is approved. This prevents spammers from emailing the shelters directly through the app or the website. In case multiple people like one pet, it’s up to the shelter to decide whom to select as an adapter. The shelter shall interview and personally meet them to decide the same.

In short:

  1.  A User selects a pet from the slideshow.
  2.  The liked pets would be shown in a “favourite” list.
  3.  The selected pet can be adopted by clicking “Adopt Now” on the pet’s profile.
  4.  The user would fill out his/her personal information with scheduling the preferred date and time he/she would liked to be visited by the shelter.
  5.  Once approved by the third party the user shall be notified via email about the status of the application. In case it is approved, a meeting would be scheduled.

SOS:

If you find a lost animal and wish it should get its home, there is an “SOS Lost Pet” option.This feature would allow the users to take a photo and share it with their friends on the social media like- Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. A short description can be put up about the lost pet to make it easier to identify the lost animal.

Dog breeders can register as vendors and promote their dogs for sale by paying WaggingPal for a premium space. Registering process is as follows:

  1. To register as a vendor on WaggingPal (Website or App) a dog breeder has to fill out a form with personal details like- name, kennel information, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number and the website.
  2. Once received by WaggingPal it shall be approved or rejected whatever the case may be. Once approved they can create dog profiles to display on the feature pet areas just as pet shelters.
  3. The vendor will be charged a flat $ rate for using the area.
  4. WaggingPal will be able to take 15 vendors for an area only on their platform.

How the app is built:

With beautiful material design, the app captures the attention of the users. It uses the latest material themes, card layouts for designing beautiful graphical interface. We not only focussed on UI, but we cared about the UX also. That makes it user-friendly. The app is developed using InstaMaterial sliding effects which make it easy and interactive for users to search pets. Users can search pets according to their preferences. The Android app was developed with Android Studio IDE and the iOS application with Swift Language.
