The assignment was to come up with a phone application that serves a simple solution to daily life uses. I came up with the Buzzd app which takes your current localtion and shows you near by places where you can buy alcohalic drinks. So that the user can easily find new drinking places or find local brewed beers and wine.
- Show you places that sell alcohal near you.
- Filter to see types of drinks, prices, hours, and popuarity
- Reviews of the place and reviews of drinks
- Shows info for each place such as hours, popular times, menu, contact info, specials, and events.
- Keeps track of drinks from your most favorite and which drinks you have ordered the most.
- Recomdations of places and drinks based on the places and drink you have tried and reviewed.
- Share your location or reviews to friends on social medias.
I made personas for a variety of users that would use the Buzzd app.
After looking at competitors and making personas i made some rough wireframe sketches.
After Revising my wieframe I made a UX Pin to make a rough mockup of the Buzzd app will be designed.
After making the UX Pin Mockups I made a more detailed mockup with Invision.
After making the mockup Buzzd app in Invision I had user test the mockup to make sure it was working right.
Here are the questions that I asked the users to perform.
- Can you find a club near you?
- Can you find a places contact info?
- Can you filter for how expensive a place is?
- Can you find a place that serves food and alcohal?
- Can you search for a vineyard or a lace that has wine?
- You love the atmosphere of pubs can you find one around you?
- Can you find the place place you visited?
- Can you find suggested drinks and make a review?
- Can you find Duffer's on the map?
- Can you find a drink you want to try and add it to your bucket list?
- Question: If they could find a places contact info?
- Observation: alot of the users were slow to find the info or didnt find the contact info.
- Question: If they could find suggested drinks?
- Observation: The users were slow to find the suggested drinks.
- Question: Find the last place you visited?
