Jailer App

The Jailer app is a study in Material Design. I came up with the idea after reading a news article about a prison escape. It was a fun exercise to think through what information prison administrators and guards would want at their fingertips in a mobile application.

Besides the prisoners current location and a large profile photo they would want a list of recent “incidents” other staff have had with that prisoner so they can be better prepared while interacting with them. Medical staff may need quick access to allergies. Search is also prominent so finding a specific prisoner’s information can be done quickly.

This application would only be accessible to prison staff while connected to the prisons secure Wi-Fi.
