I thought why not make a app that gives you the actual speed when you are driving any vehicle.
So here it is the Idea for developing that type windows app.
First thing the features that will come inside this app are:
- Setting the units : Miles / Kilometers.
- Of course the speed at what you are currently driving.
- Time Interval once you crossed the 60 and 100 Miles or Kilometer /per hour.
- Compare the speed with the previous ride.
- And Sure you can share your data to the social neteworking sites.
And yeah thanks to the Ultrabook GPS facility, due to this we will get an good app.
The main reason behind this app is the speed that our vehicle show are not that much accurate as compare to this app will show.
In this app first of all you have to create your profile. Than when you want to test the speed every time you will get a new datasheet where you get your records and atlast it will be saved.
All the data of this app are comparable that is you can compare the speed for various rides.
And at last share it in your fav social networking site.
How it Works
Well that a good question, at every fix interval of time the app will try to locate the postion and thus calculate the difference between previous data and the current data (a long and complex logic which is difficult for me to express in the layman's language) and hence it will show your current speed.
For showing the time that you cross 60 Miles or Kilometer / Per Hour is in this way: First as you click on "Start Ride" the timmer will start and once the speed reach the 60 M or KM /Per Hour it will stop the timmer and that will display at front end.
Once you click on "Start Ride" on the cool odometer the speed will be shown and at last there will be "End Ride" button once clicked all the location tracking tedious job will be stoped. And there will be an another button for "Save" or "Discard" the data, if you want to store the data, it will be stored else it will not.
There will be a small button to share your data to the social sites (It will be not necessary to store the data for sharing the stats)
Now you can see the graph of all the stored data i.e. at what time you started the ride and what were the stats of that ride.
Using the code
Well I have started building this app and soon I will be updating the core functionality that how the speed will be tested
This is the screens of the Windows app and currently working good, and designed in Blend.
Points of Interest
Well I am student and have good hands not only in .NET technolgy but also in Java, PHP and other Open Source CMS. I am also developing the the windows phone application and its been in the market place. And this will be the first time that i will be developing the windows App and using this type of GPS funcionality.
And last but not the least I want your suggestion on this app, if possible and valid I will be trying to implement your suggestion on this app.
