Thursday Play_VSCO CAM_Feng

VSCO Cam is an app I have used for a while. It combine picture taking, editing and sharing just like what instagram does, but it does better. The best of this app is the UI design is so clean and simple. And the photo filters it provides also are really great. I could easily take very professional photo with artistic quality by using this. And fine-tuning capabilities with sliders for every effect help you get the look you want.

You can also import photos one at a time into VSCO for editing. The app lets you share images via conventional means, like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, but it desperately wants you to submit your images to the app’s central sharing feature, an online photo gallery called the Grid. The only way to get your own shots into the public Grid is to be selected via a mysterious vetting process, but if all you want to do is make your photos available to friends, you can share a URL for the images you add to your own personal Grid.




Feedback from Crits

* Focus on imagery and space – think of panoramic views or a 360 view

* Text and color contrast – especially on filter page

* Consider adding specific equipment options on the filter page – Research

* Add prices on the scroll view

I learnt a lot through the whole semester,

1, how to draw a clear and logical app map, like the app map of this final project. to use flinto and invison to design a quick prototype

3. I have been trying to use Pixate to design more transition for the prototype, this is one example I have been designing,

4. I have been trying to use motion graphic to design some transition of interface.

5. I learnt a lot about how to do the paper and digital user test, I realized the importance of feedback which would guild the further design.

Pooli By Feng and Xueer

Here are our Final Presentation and Digital Prototype.

We got many helpful feedbacks from the first version of digital prototype.

The three ways of searching a product on the main view can be integrated and simplified to take small space, so that room can be made for some editorial content, such as popular/recommended products/orders. A clear finishing moment or confirmation screen is important for users to commit to an order and the purchasing action. For first-time users, it would be great to have some instructions/tutorials or hints to walk them through the flow and get an idea of how the order pool works. Safari sharing plugin can be a possible way to send a product link from a browser to Pooli. Apple Pay and Paypal can be used as payment alternatives.
