Just added app map and wireframes from last week’s PDF file.
While I am planning a family trip to California, I found Gogobot app.
This application lets the user to plan for group in different locations.
Gogobot has a website too, and their new app looks great and friendly user interface.
Once I create a trip, I can invite other people and add a hotel, restaurant or place.
It has three categories which are Stay, Eat and Play.
Plan a trip collaboratively with others
The new interface within this app is hard to get used to it.
The information about the restaurant and hotel is not really helpful.
I just downloaded a game called piano tiles. Its a very simple speed based tapping game. It was most probably made by a developer without the help of a designer because it is pretty plain.
The game could be improved with some simple touches, for instance you are supposed to touch the black squares on a grid, but just bringing some color and texture into the grid to make it more inviting could give the app a new life.
Also, there is little to no variation on the type used throughout the application, some visual hierarchy would have been nice. You can’t really differentiate the buttons from what is just text that is on the screen. Simply making all of the buttons be one color would have been an easy solution, perhaps the same color as the squares you are meant to tap.
The score is just kind of displayed on the top of the screen, center justified, but doesn’t feel like it belongs. Additionally, once the round ends, at the top of the screen it says ‘Piano Tiles (Don’t tap the white tile)’, while I commend the created for saying tap instead of click, it is awkwardly positioned and it is the only thing in the whole app that is right justified. Also, it is displayed after you have stopped playing rather than before you begin.
Right now the application is not pleasant to look at, and that makes me not want to play it. With the addition of nice colors and animations, along with a more careful choice of typeface and visual hierarchy the app would be more pleasant making me feel happy (the feeling I typically want to feel while playing a game). Because the user is rushed to tap fast, it easy to become anxious playing this game, but with some more design consideration that can be changed.
In my new version of the first project, I improved the interface design and logical relationship, and also I add two functions, which are shopping list and expiration alarm.
Before redesign this App, I did a lot of user testing, and almost all of the feedbacks mentioned that expiration alarm and shopping list are necessary. Especially for some target audiences, 40 – 60s housewives, because they do not have a good memory.
In shopping list page, there are three different type modes; Siri, Handwriting Input and auto-update. Auto-update function can scan information from Available page automatically, and then it will list the names of foods, which are already or almost empty.
I want to introduce a App, which is a game, named Rubik’s® Cube. In this game,you can play anywhere, anytime on the most authentic digital representation of the Rubik’s Cube available. Of course the classic 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube is included but there are many great variations to play with: four different sizes, timed mode, free play, CRAZY Cube and the custom picture cube.
You’ll be able to manoeuvre the Rubik’s Cube with a flick of your wrist, or get a better look as you move your device with the motion controls made possible with the gyroscope. Watch every move in enhanced graphics optimized for the retina display or turn on 3D mode and interact with the cube in a whole new way.
Learn to solve the cube with the included solutions guide. Challenge yourself to solve the Rubik’s Cube faster every day and track your times in each of the 24 game modes. Share your best times on Facebook and impress your friends with your Rubik’s Cube prowess!
