Open Source Location Service and News
I had the idea on a flight from the Philippines to Hong Kong in 2015 reading a Newspaper.
RefugeeBuddy - On Android
The RefugeeBuddy helps people to stay visible for their family members and friends, as well as be informed about ongoings in the middle east and Europe.
It is an open source GPS tracker and news aggregator.
The GPS tracker is setup in a way that battery consumption is kept low. It is tried to find a middle way between accuracy and battery lifetime.
The news aggregator is aggregating news from all major and minor news outlets, which have something to do with war news from the middle east, syria, iran, irak, turkey, as well as immigration news from Germany, Austria, Greece, Macedonia, etc.
