The main page of the app has a menu in a grid layout.
Upon tapping ‘Find a Doctor’ the App finds general practitioners who are nearby the user. For this the current location of the user is utilized in the search. The results of the search are displayed as pins on a map showing the users current location and doctors nearby them. When the user taps the pin, a brief information field comes up with the doctor’s name and address. There is a Detail Disclosure button on the information field, which when clicked shows a more detailed description of the doctor with two buttons, one which allows you to phone the doctors rooms directly from your iPhone, and the other which gives you navigational directions on your iPhone.
When ‘Search for Doctor’ is tapped, the user is presented with a screen where they can search for a doctor based on either the State, suburb, post code or the name of the doctor. The results are again displayed in the same fashion as ‘find a doctor’.
During any of the above operations, the user has the option to add a particular doctor to their favourites list which is called ‘My Doctor’. This list is accessible from the main menu of the App and is also editable.
To aid the users during frequent searches, a list containing the recent searches by the user is available from the main menu which is called ‘Recent Search’.
