After a period of brainstorming and research my group reached the conclusion that there was an urgent need to address the low supply of blood donations nationally. From this Blood+ was formed.blood+ portfolio4blood+ portfolio 162.jpg

Blood+ is a blood donation app aimed at improving the process of blood donation in Ireland. The app is broken up into three sections. The first section allows users to see their own profile, when they are due to give blood again, and current blood levels nationwide. There is also a donation section where the user can quickly and easily book a donation at any clinic across the country, as well as find out if they are eligible to donate. The final section of the app is a reward system that offers incentives such as free coffee from Starbucks, or free cinema tickets in exchange for their donation.
The app also contains an emergency notification system that sends alerts to your phone when blood supply levels are low. The service as a whole can also send these notices to advertisement screens in shopping centres and in streets across the country, prompting people to donate.
