A 12-year-old pupil of Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls, Lagos State, Tomisin Ogunnubi, completes the development of an Android mobile tracking application named: My Locator – to aid users to know their geographic location, view it on the map and be appropriately directed.
How it was developed:
Tomisin Ogunnubi developed the My Locator app under the guidance of an Information and Communications Technology partnership, between her school, Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls, and New Horizons Computer Learning Center. Here, Tomision was able to learn the necessary skills and knowledge needed to develop her app.
How it works:
The “current location” setting on the app enables the child to see exactly where they are, as well as highlighting the neighboring streets around them. The other main functionality of the app will allow the child to save a location such as their house or school and it will direct them to their desired location.
The My Locator App also features a button, which when pressed will alert the Lagos State Emergency Services. The app will call the services as well as show the child’s location so that they can be helped.
