About Me

I’m Qinwen Xing. My background is graphic design. Most of my previous work are focused on branding, book design, and packaging.

3 things I don’t know from the Apple HIG

  1. Apple changed their system fonts to a new typeface “San Francisco” since ios 9.
  2. 3D touch gives the user more possibility to interact with contents, such as peek and pop allows the user to preview photos, links, page and etc. It’s important that the peek view is designed big enough so that fingers don’t obscure its content.
  3. Make animations optional. When the option to reduce motion is enabled in accessibility preferences, the app should minimize or eliminate application animations.

One thought on “Qinwen_Week 1”

  1. We talked a bit about this in class, but the share feature doesn’t seemed justified enough right now to be a part of the app. You should focus either of making a unique experience that only this app can offer or allow the messaging interaction to happen on whatever messaging platform people already use.

    The same goes for calendar. Do people really need a separate calendar for events planned in here, or would they want to use the same calendar that they use for everything else?

    If you do include it, I’d like to see you upcoming plans or other parts of that incorporated into the main feed as well.

    The discover tab doesn’t seem to particularly feature the food and restaurant specific content that your app has. You should consider ways that this very specific topic can be surfaced to encourage interaction.

    Likewise, how can the posting portion be as useful for the particular type of content that you want users to post.
