Just A Touch

Helping An Entrepreneur Make Their Idea A Reality.

Peggy Miller walked into Mediaura’s office after an idea inspired her to make a mobile application that would help make the world a better place. Her vision was a mobile app designed for small children, the elderly, or those with a physical impairment that would help them contact emergency help if it was ever needed.

Mediaura frequently collaborates with innovative entrepreneurs such as Peggy to help make their concepts become a reality. Many times people will have a wonderful idea for a mobile application but not have the capabilities to build it themselves. This is something we do so often, that our process can facilitate getting these intangible ideas into the hands of users and into the marketplace as quickly as possible.

Using technology to improve our community

The first step in any new project is what we call the “blueprint” phase. If you think about building a new digital produce like constructing a house, there is an efficient process that helps keep things flowing smoothly along. Mediaura had several meetings with Peggy Miller to discuss her goals and vision so that we could formulate a strategy that would make her mobile app dream come to life.

During this stage of development, we made sure to design out the entire app, identify any roadblocks that may arise, as well as take into account the targeted audience and how their interaction with a mobile application may be different from a typical user.

A unique product for a specific audience

Mediaura’s mobile development designed a mobile application that would utilize large, recognizable images. These icons were programmed to eliminate the extra steps required to solicit help during an emergency situation. By doing so it made the app easier for young people, the elderly, and people with disabilities or impairments to make important phone calls or send predefined text messages using pictures instead of names or numbers.

By building the app from the user’s perspective it helped up to inform the nuances of the design, such as:

  • Present Message Options
  • Programmable Contacts
  • Large Easy Touch Buttons

When the mobile app is opened, users will see four large button icons identifying:

  • The Police
  • The Ambulance
  • The Fire Department
  • A Designated Contact
“It was an honor working on an app designed to help individuals in an emergency situation. It's always a great feeling when you meet with someone who has a unique idea and they trust you with their vision.”
– Dawn Geary, Director of Marketing

Just A Touch also recognized that there are times when an emergency situation may arise for an individual yet they do not require the 9-1-1 services of these government agencies. For occurrences such as these, we designed a customizable In Case of Emergency button for users that allows them to preprogram an emergency contact of their choice, along with a photo of that individual.

“I have worked with Mediaura for the past year and a half on a cell phone app. I am not a tech savvy person, but this group of very knowledgeable professionals made the whole process very easy and and a wonderful experience. I would heartily recommend them to anyone who is need of the kind of services they provide.”
– Peggy Miller, CEO

The app has been purposefully designed to be efficient, easy-to-use, and customizable for the user. It is especially handy for users who when faced with an emergency may not know or remember the number of their emergency contact.
