When students started arriving back on my high school campus in the spring of 2021, the administration quickly realized they would need some sort of Covid-19 symptoms check-in system. I was asked if I could produce a mobile app that students could use on their phone. Within 24 hours, I’d produced a simple app that had students answer a few questions and produced a green or red screen with a timestamp as they entered the campus. The school nurse adjusted the wording of a couple of the questions, and it was ready to go by the time students started to arrive!

The app was simple, but visually polished and appealing. I used the school’s mascot (a bulldog) and created a simple but elegant opening screen.

I produced the app using Thunkable, a simple no/low-code mobile app development platform. You can view the code here.
