About #GotYourBack App
#GotYourBack is an all-in-one food allergy management iOS app that stores allergens, medical information, scans food labels, and uses geo-location to notify emergency contacts if an emergency occurs.
Take a picture of an ingredient label to identify key allergens. Using a Google Text Detection API, the app will recognize words and ingredients from the picture and identify any allergens in the product.
Set reminders and keep track of expiration dates for medications. The app will send a reminder before the medication expires and notify you of the expiration date. Reminders will be sent 15 days, 7 days, and 2 days before the expiration date.
#GotYourBack provides notifications if a medication expires or if a reminder is set. Enable notifications directly on the app or go to Settings>>#GotYourBack>>Notifications>>Allow Notifications
Pressing the emergency button sends a text message to your stored emergency contacts with your current location.
Store and access your medical information at any time. Enter personal data into fields such as blood type, height and weight, medications, and dosage.
Check off your allergens from the Top 8 Allergens list or input your own allergens. The ingredient lookup feature will scan ingredient labels for the allergens you selected/typed into the text field.
Input information about your emergency contacts into the required text fields. This information will be used in the emergency feature, where your emergency contacts will be sent a message with your location if an emergency occurs.
