INDIAN GIRL DEVELOPS AN IOS APPLICATION TO ASSIST PEOPLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH CONCERNS
The girl is ready with an iOS app that will help teenagers and adults to overcome mental health issues.
Apple has declared 350 winners of WWDC swift student competition held in almost 40 different countries and regions.
Kanishka Chaudhry, a high-school pupil from Gujarat, is available with an iOS app to help teenagers and adults overcome mental health problems. The girl never thought like all of us, that mental health would emerge as a heated debatable topic after the suicide of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Apple has announced 350 victors of its annual WWDC Swift Student Challenge from 41 different countries and areas, including nearly 15 from our country and she is among those next age of coders and creators.
Apps that can help people make more relations and improve people’s mental health always motivated Kanishka to do something similar for society.
Think up an app where affected people can communicate themselves without any boundaries and the best thing about that app is they don’t have to share their true identity, like on conventional social media platforms, Kanishka told IANS.
A pupil of GNFC Narmada Vidyalaya in Bharuch, Gujarat, made an app in the lockdown phase which will be available shortly on the Apple store.
People can share their lives’ stories and problems off-limits and can have like-minded people to communicate with, she said.
When she won WWDC 2019 scholarship last year, it gave her some kind of favorable hope that even not-so-famous apps can generate a change to society.
That really helped me to do better and create more apps and software. Apple really motivates students to make apps that bring a difference. And that enables me to make apps for the betterment of the society, asserted Kanishka.
She prepared an Xcode playground about mental health awareness this year. The playground launches with some text slide show revealing some real facts about mental state.
Apple Xcode is an integrated advancement environment for macOS including a suite of software development tools.
The playground that she evolved is divided into three parts and shows signs of different mental health problems with practical advice.
Indore-based student Amit Sawant who is another winner of the Swift Student Challenge said Apple is inspiring students like him to take part in programming through the challenge.
People are confronting lots of mental health issues in this catastrophic time like depression and I would like to participate in developing an app that can help people strengthen their mental health, Amit told IANS.
He is building a platform for patrons, content creators, event organizers, and anyone who desires sponsorship after establishing next-gen remedies to solve real-life dilemmas.
This will appease the process for content creators and event planners, without concerning about sponsorship and joining the right set of people, he stated
Another winner Hariharan Marquesan from Chennai started coding in 2014 when Swift was declared.
Augmented Reality (AR) apps which incline to develop a bridge between truth and computer-generated objects mesmerizes me. I think that AR apps have a big possibility for almost all the fields, particularly academics, asserted Hariharan.
With technologies like Apple’s ARKit getting advanced year by year, and entry-level iPads getting really accessible, I think AR will revolutionize the way we examine things,” he added further.
With the availability of new iPad Pro accentuating breakthrough LiDAR Scanner, I just can’t halt thinking about what qualities Apple would add further into the new hardware,” Hariharan.
I find my solace in reading and trying my hand at writing.
