Implementation

For this project I Used Android Studio. After deducing the user problems and the flow of the working of application I started developing it as an Offline app.  I have used HashTable to save the contact details while traversing the list when user asks to access a number.Along with network bay station working.
HashTable – In computing, a hash table (hash map) is a data structure which implements an associative array abstract data type, a structure that can map keys to values. A hash table uses a hash function to compute an index into an array of buckets or slots, from which the desired value can be found.
Android Studio – Android Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) from Google that provides developers with tools needed to build applications for the Android OS platform.

Tools Used 

  • Android Studio
  • SDK
  • SqlLite DB.

Research: As many close friends were facing this problem frequently I got the idea of making this Application that will run completely in background and without Internet connection.
I went about trying to search for a solution first but as nothing relative was available I went about to resolve this problem with a simple innovative idea so that the usual OTP saga with credentials hassle could be avoided and a simple fast solution can be provided.

Survey as per few users who used this application found it helpful and an easy solution to their everyday problem.
Few Reviews-
Dhrubajyoti- “I used to misplace my phone quite a lot.As most of the time it used to be in silent mode it was quite time-consuming to find it.But MyHelper turned out to be a very handful as I was able to change the sound profile of my phone within seconds just by an SMS.”
Nischay More-“Very oftenly I used to forget my phone at home and go to some important work. Thanks to MyHelper I get the contacts very easily in a Hassle-Free way.”

Applications: It can used by any Android Phone to get full access to your phone. Any phone with basic sms feature can be used to access your phone.EX-A basic phone like NOKIA-1100 can also be used to get all these features.
