Old App Map

I realized that a lot of the items that were on my app map were not actual screens, but rather states that occur on the same screen. I also got rid of the settings tab and replaced it with the profile tab, which houses settings.

One thought on “Week 2 Sara Birchard”

  1. We talked about this plenty in class, but do consider both creation and featuring content of chef versus random users. How does that change the way you display information. It doesn’t feel completely intentional that they’re treated at the same level.

    Look at all of your designs on device. The copy across the board looks quite small to me, but check it out on device to make a call.

    I think you can push the discover tab a littler further to expose content that a person might browse through for fun or to find new content to follow. Think about what your main goals are for that ab and find a content and interface strategy that argues strongly that it would accomplish that goal.
