Mobile application for Health worker workplan-GSOC 2013


I am interested in applying under GSOC 2013 for your "Mobile application for
Health worker workplan" project.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Aarthi Ramamurthy. I applied for GSOC
2012 for the FixMyTransport ( <http://> ) mobile
application of MySociety ( <http://> ). Though they liked
my application, that project was not selected by Google for funding. I was
persistent. I offered to MySociety that I will build the application as a
volunteer. With their approval, I built the application for Android phones
using jQuery Mobile, PhoneGap (Apache Cordova) and Google Maps. You can see
the code here: <http://>
You mentioned that this project will use the following technologies:

Android, JSON/XML

I would like to propose the following:

    1.Build a browser application rather than a native Android application.
Even though I will test this only on Android for this project, with some
additional testing and tweaking, it can be made to run on iPhone/iPad and
other mobile platforms, in future.

    2.Use jQuery for developing the user interface. Again for the same
reasons as above.

    3.Use SQLite for storing in a local database. Again for the same reasons
as above.

    4.Write web services on the web database for getting and setting the

    5.Use JSON for two-way syncing with the web database, when connected.

Please let me know your thoughts on this approach, so that I can go ahead
and prepare a full proposal for my GSOC application.

I will appreciate any and all feedback and guidance that you can provide me
in this project.
