Easy Trip on Apple TV
For the Apple TV, I want to focus on city recommendation. Unlike the mobile phone application, which is easy to typing and navigating through different views, Apple TV app is more suitable for showing high quality images and videos. So in this app, you can choose the city you want to visit by different catalog, such as theme, season and story. When you go into the seasonal view, it will show you the best cities you can visit in different months. After choosing the city, it will recommend several travel plans for you. In the each travel plan, you can easily see some photo and video of every sights and restaurants.
What I learn from user test:
1.the word”seasonal” may be confused, it can be replaced by “month” .
2. In the recommend itinerary view, I can show more information for every itinerary.
Discover Voodoo’s new game: Paper.io.
Your goal? To conquer as much territory as possible. It’s initially very simple, and the game can be mastered immediately, but watch out: there’s competition, and not everyone can win!
Whether you’re bold or more careful, you have to be more cunning than your adversaries by finding the best strategy to conquer the most space. But be careful! You have a weak spot: your tail. If an enemy touches it, that’s the end for you.
Try to stay ahead, because victory in Paper.io is never certain until you possess all the territory. Stealing is allowed, and your enemies won’t hesitate to do so.
After the success of Quiz Run, 1 Pic 8 Words, and Bool, Voodoo now offers you a new gaming and graphics experience inspired by io type games (made popular by agar.io). Enjoy the simplicity and strategy of an io game in a world with unique graphics.
Paper.io is for the whole family and doesn’t require an Internet connection.
The reason I like Paper.io
First of all, I like the mechanics of this game. It is easy to understand but no easy to master. You can easily understand the rule when you playing it for the first time. But it takes a lot of time to master this game. This is a good feature of the mechanics. Also the illustration style is elegant. I like the color combination of the square.
3 things I learned from iOS HIG:
- Before perusing the HIG, I did not know much about the segmented controls. In my old understanding, I thought segmented control is similar to Tab Bars. One is on the top and the other is on the bottom. After reading HIG, I find that Tab Bars is mainly being used for switching between different section of an App, but segmented control is more likely to be used in displaying different views of one page.
- I find that the Apple system has a lot of very unchangeable interaction. I used to think designer can be creative of the look of the interaction animation. But after reading the HIG, I found that animation must follow certain principles, or the user will be confused about what’s going on. Such as the progress indicator should look like a spinning icon, the progress bar should look like a track fill from left to right.
- I didn’t know HIG has so many different gestures. Such as drag, tap, swipe, flick, pinch, touch and hold. And the most strange one is shake, I never find out that users can shake their phone to undo or redo delete. Knowing these gestures help me to better design the interaction.
