The whole app:
Too many functions are mixed, which causes this app complicated. Home:
1. Give the “Home” tab a name which is related to the content of the tab rather than using “Home”.
2. “Adding to cart” function seems to have the logical problem. Food Regulation:
The name of “Food regulation” seems to confuse the user, which means that the user won’t think the food shown in this tab is the food the user has at home. Health Record:
1. How would you get the health data? Could it link to Health app to get part of the data?
2. The layout of this tab is confusing.
Navigation: Hierarchical Navigation, Flat Navigation, Content-Driven or Experience-Driven Navigation. I didn’t consider much about the types of navigations. This helps me to analyze the information architecture.
3D touch: in the past, when I design interactions, I didn’t consider applying varying levels of pressure to the touchscreen to access additional functions.
Layout Guides and Safe Area: it aids with the positioning, alignment, and spacing of content. I didn’t know safe areas and margins in UI.
My name is Yin Hu, currently a first-year student in MFA DT. I studied Mass Communication in the undergraduate study. And I have two internships in UI&UX area. One is at the user experience lab of Tongji University, in China, the other one is at an internet company. I want to further study UI&UX design more systematically in my graduate study, so I chose Designing for Usability the last semester.
