CDC Flu Informant

This is my entry to the CDC app challenge contest.

CDC provides lots of frequently updated news feed articles and other data. The goal is to communicate effectively to the public to raise awareness and educate everyone. Today many people have powerful phones and an phone app is a great for that.

I used google map and geopoint coordinate data to draw weekly report apps.


I also wrote a RSS reader to parse news feeds.


Get the free app here from the Android Market.

Ok folks, the bottom line is this: to prevent the flu, wash your hands frequently with soap!
