I built an SMS service that sends to the user daily news about the COVID-19 in the USA. All that the user has to do is to enter their phone number in the form on the app's website.
The idea behind it is that there are so many news and while many people want to avoid the rabbit hole of bad news, they still may want to know what is going on. So for the beta phase, everyday the user get one SMS with the top news of the current day.
React, NodeJS and Express
I also learned some React and Express to get this done.
I made this as simple as possible to be able to build and functional app with the time I had, so I plan to implement future features like:
- User be able to subscribe to automatically get daily news.
I have to thank my sister-in-law and super divaloper Karoline Alencar, who mentored me and helped me every time I got stuck and without who I would never be able to finish this project in time.
