Covid 19 and the mobile Disney World application.

This summer during this Covid 19 crisis I have been taking a HCI course as part of my Master’s in Computer Science. As Disney World starts to open today, it’s important to look at how the investment that Disney has made in developing their Disney World mobile application will change the passholder experience moving forward. During this period it’s become apparent how Disney investments in mobile development have really paid off and will be a critical element in the future for them. This application will serve as a critical backbone to assist Disney in getting through this Covid-19 crisis.

Background on contexts in the application and how it adds constraints or challenges in using the Disney World application

The use of constraints within the Disney World mobile application allows the application interface to adapt to the environment that the user is placed within. An example of a constraint within the application is when you are located with the Hollywood Studios park; you can select a boarding group for the Rise of Resistance (Fig. 1). The application has constraints built into it where a user must be electronically admitted to the park and physically located within the park to be added to a boarding group to ride the attraction. User’s outside the park are not given the ability to obtain a boarding group number.

Another feature of the application which takes into account constraints is how the shopping experience is constrained throughout the application based on the context you are operating in when looking for merchandise. The built-in shopping experience within the Disney World application will adapt to where you are located. If you are outside Disney World you are displayed products that can be purchased and shipped to you. When you are on Disney properties, you are provided with products that are available for shipping to your resort hotel exclusive to the Disney Theme Parks. The constraints get even more granular where when you are in the context of a physical theme park you can use the application to locate the store that the product is available in (Fig. 2).

Data Scientist Creates Python Script To Track Available Slots For Covid Vaccinations

Bhavesh Bhatt, Data Scientist from Fractal Analytics posted that he has created a Python script that checks the available slots for Covid-19 vaccination centres from CoWIN API in India. He has also shared the GitHub link to the script.

The YouTube content creator posted, “Tracking available slots for Covid-19 Vaccination Centers in India on the CoWIN website can be a bit strenuous.” “I have created a Python script which checks the available slots for Covid-19 vaccination centres from CoWIN API in India. I also plan to add features in this script of booking a slot using the API directly,” he added.

We asked Bhatt how did the idea come to fruition, he said, “Registration for Covid vaccines for those above 18 started on 28th of April. When I was going through the CoWIN website – https://www.cowin.gov.in/home, I found it hard to navigate and find empty slots across different pin codes near my residence. On the site itself, I discovered public APIs shared by the government [https://apisetu.gov.in/public/marketplace/api/cowin] so I decided to play around with it and that’s how I came up with the script.”

Talking about the Python script, Bhatt mentioned that he used just 2 simple python libraries to create the Python script, which is datetime and requests. The first part of the code helps the end-user to discover a unique district_id. “Once he has the district_id, he has to input the data range for which he wants to check availability which is where the 2nd part of the script comes in handy,” Bhatt added.

And therefore, hiring these kinds of organizations helps a lot while launching your mobile app in the specific market, as they are the ones who know how the audience will going to react to your mobile app.

  • Updated with Latest Trends

Being updated is the most important thing to operate in a technology sector with a full capacity, as there are many changes they get places daily, and that’s why we won’t be able to build a mobile app on our own, even if we know what to leverage and what to exclude.

As keeping updates with the latest trends helps us getting better at designing and developing mobile apps with top-edge technologies, and this is an essential part that businesses need to understand.

  • User’s Usage Phycology

If you do not focus on user’s usage phycology, you are going to be failed badly, believe it or not, how user’s access mobile apps and how to place those navigational buttons in the mobile apps are necessary, and I have seen many big businesses don’t understand this concept, and because of bad user experience, they fail measurably.

So this point is also good to consider to see how your targeted audience, have been doing and accessing your mobile apps.

So if you need any help for mobile app design & development, let me I would love to answer and help you out with the perfect approach and right solution according to your audience.
