User Experience UX
With the ability to create prototypes across different screen sizes and devices, we are able to validate hypotheses prior to creative design and build
Although the target user-group is assumed to be technically-savvy, I still wanted the app to be something they could pick up and use immediately. Therefore, the user-interface leans heavily on established conventions that the users will already be extremely familiar with; swiping list items for extra options, recognizable chat dialogue, Google-style maps, and location-information.
The key element of the user-experience was to create a frictionless feeling of gliding through the content. Smooth, logical page transitions gave the appearance of forward-motion, and once into an article page, subsequent content was perpetually pre-loaded so the user never has to take a backward step into the listings.
I focused on improving the navigation experience and the platform's usability to maximize the user experience.
