Additional features to "Own History"
We could motivate users to keep using the app by developing further "own history" features.
Calculate ja visualize user things like: How often you have had fever this year? How is it conpared to previous years? What time of an year (which month) you most propably get sick?
These would really be valuable information for user and it would only take this 10 seconds per day.
If you every november have a flu you could e.g. focus on eating healthy and wash you hands then. (Why not even give push notification: "You are getting sick quite often this time of a year. Remember to wash your hands and eat your vegetables!")
If you notice that you are more often sick than previous years, you could start concentrate to get your basic fitness level up or go to the healt center to be investigated why you immune system is lowered. (Why not even give push notification with question like "You have been sick more than before, should we be worried?)
If you have been really healthy for years that might be something to tell and show in your job interviewer (even they cannot ask this kind of an question themselves)
Some of these things might be possible to use in marketing already!
But to really get these available we would additionally to above ones need features:
- Some kind of way to make the "profile" permanent without loosing the anonymity. Local browser based solution is not enough. There is issue for this I think already
- I still think there should be more symptoms user can select. Especially when it would be not only Covid-19 app
- Also the free text field to comment later into history like this fever and symptoms was propably flu and so on. Afterwards might be hard to remember only from symptoms what it was
This set could be answers to needed question "what user will get from using the app" (additional to the fact that you are participating in something important)
