One of the biggest problems in managing personal health is rooted in how difficult it is to track and correlate what is really going on. We can’t understand what is really happening in the 4th dimension, meaning time. When a symptom or health issue occurs, we cannot recall what was eaten, where we were, etc., let alone some of the more nuanced influences, such as weather conditions, pollen count or a myriad of other factors going on at the time. Welcome to MedSight!

Firebase Train Scheduler

This is a sample application built to demo Firebase. The functionality provides a real-time display scheduling notepad tracker. Users can enter their train name, destination, the typical start time, alongside the train’s frequency; what users get back is all that data saved in addition to the next train’s arrival time, as well as the minutes remaining. This would be useful for those seeking to map their train schedule for the day and recall it automatically from the cloud without having to worry about storing the data.
