Meeting Highlights:



Presented

the

use cases co
mpleted so far

to the mentor and took suggestions from him.



We demonstrated how the
health score use case

works in a step by step manner



We ran some test cases and we were able to display the desired output and got some
suggestions

from the mentor.



We e
xplained a little about the SQLite database and how user would be able to store his
profile information in the database.



W
e were able to get the app up and running which is a good thing

but mentor suggested
us that we should make use of the available space

in the Tablet and should focus on
the
layout.



Also mentor suggested that the app would make more sense if we were able to display the
date

and time

whenever user wants to input health data.

In the app we included a component called user activity levels fo
r which our mentor
suggested us to also include approximate calorie value for each type of activity along
with an option to add or subtract calorie value.



Mentor suggested us to make the app look more appealing to the audience.



He also suggested us to make

the value of RANK a dynamically changing value.



Also to indicate the level of healthiness our mentor suggested us to use colors
rather
than
using numeric values.



Adding colors would help the user
to interpret

his rank more appropriately than using
number
s.



To display the user rank we used a dialog box,
instead of using
a dialog box M
r
. Ravi

suggested us to display it dynamically on the bottom of the screen as soon as

the

user
input
s his

data.



Also our mentor suggested us some valuable resources that coul
d help us in gathering
more information on food types and their nutrition levels.



Also he suggested us to get rid of the food labels and include a food pyramid where user
can select a particular food and can do drag and drop on to the pyramid depending on
how healthy his food type is.



The following figure gives a better understanding of what a food pyramid is

We also need to pull out all the edit text boxes so that every time
a
user
does not

have to
key in

values, i
nstead he suggested us to make
use of
drop down

list

in order to increase
or decrease a particular value.



Also we need to take care of the font styles and spacing; also we can increase the scope
by adding more meal tabs.



O
n
ce the user
enter
s
his health data he should be able to look at his he
alth charts that
would reflect his health patterns over the period of time.

Deliverabl
es for the next meeting



Rich and appealing
UI should be designed and implemented
.
