I have had this app for a while but recently rediscovered how much I love it. It is beautifully designed and does exactly as its name entails. It acts as a photo booth, taking multiple photos adding them to a photo strip upon completion. You can choose whether you want color, Black and White, etc and of course once finished you can export to various social media and also print.

Prototyping FOOD TRIX!

Its feedback time!

Round 1 : last week proved that I needed to keep language consistent across the app to minimize confusion. I also needed to add a search bar, potentially a “featured” section, in addition to imagery when working through the steps of each “How to”.

Round 2 : Pictures with step by step directions went over well. I fixed the language throughout the app so that it was consistent in addition to adding a search bar, and a “featured” section. Positive feedback received on the “featured” section to add credibility. Nav bar is sorted out and worked well with user scenario.

Looking forward to adding more design to the wireframes and get more feedback next week!

Cool App: Snap Guide

I haven’t downloaded it yet to try; but it caught my eye as I was doing some research for my thesis on mobile apps. I thought it seemed applicable to my research on the best ways to display “How-to” information for my food app as well.

Snap GuideSnapguide is a simple, beautiful way to share and view step-by-step how to guides. Discover new things to cook, build, wear, play and more. Create your own guides and share what you love making with your friends on Twitter, Facebook and more. Discuss your interests with other people who share your passions.



“Over” is an app that I admire purely for its beautiful design. The user interaction is in unison with the overall branding and identity with the use of an “O” as the wheel of options for the user. It provides the user with a small but beautiful type library to assist in adding text to their photos. Take a look. It is worth the $0.99 just to look at how it is designed, even if you don’t plan to use it.
