Build Really Smart Context-Aware Apps, in Minutes!
TRNQL is challenging you to build an app that solves a real problem by using the TRNQL SDK
What if you could build a really smart app for iOS & Android that can, at any moment, tell whether the user is:
- running or driving
- at home or outside
- in a cold or warm place
=> and act accordingly.
What if you could add all these capabilities in minutes?
The TRNQL SDKs for iOS & Android let you do that in a snap. Now we challenge you to bring your best ideas to life.
Here are a few ideas; we trust you can come up with better ones:
- Cell phones are one of the leading causes of car accidents today. What about a messaging app that does not show the keyboard if the user is driving.
- Let users set an alarm at sunrise, or 10 mins after sunrise, etc.
- If the user is driving, the app should not show them walking directions.
- A vacation-planning app should inform users if there is inclement weather forecasted for the site.
- A mapping app doesn’t need inch-by-inch movement if the user is going at 60 mph.
- A scheduling app should inform the user’s team when he/she is running late to the meeting. It should also let them know where the user is and his/her expected arrival time.
- A smart home app can use the user micro weather data wherver they go.
- A smart home app can adjust the indoor temperature based on the local micro climate.
