Mood App Case Study

Over View

On a survey, we found most participants would use more than one communication app to achieve their goals.

For solving the issue we bring Mood App, Mood is a multi-purpose app that strives to create ecosystems that cover all user's needs. This way, users don’t have to switch between apps to solve their problems.

The Problem

I am trying to solve the problem people use more than one communication app to achieve their goals. However, having to switch between apps led to some challenges such as messages left unanswered. Indeed users would prioritize one or two communication apps over others. Feeling overwhelmed by the number of notifications coming through was also a concern and users would have different methods to remove distractions.

My Role

UX/UI Designer
User research, Interaction design, Visual design, prototyping, testing.

I am proud to say that I design the entire Mood application for IOS and helped the junior UI Designer to do the Android version of it.

I led the entire project and worked on creating the visual design of the new design system. I also revamped the UX of key pages and worked on motion design, while my developer colleagues applied their magic to help implement the entire project.

User Research

Interviews

Communication apps have become an integral part of our lifestyles but we certainly have different relationships with them so I was curious to find out how different users would interact with them and why. My goal was to find out how the participants would behave with their communication apps as well as understanding the challenges they may have faced and how they would overcome them.

Affinity Diagram

I grouped and organised the information in an affinity diagram. Here are some of the key findings:

Notifications

Most participants would use more than one communication app to achieve their goals. However having to switch between apps led to some challenges such as messages left unanswered. Indeed users would prioritise one or two communication apps over others. Feeling overwhelmed by the amount of notifications coming through was also a concern and users would have different methods to remove distractions.

Privacy

Majority of users were concerned about their privacy settings and were keen change their settings after signing up for a new communication app. However the actual process of changing privacy settings within apps was perceived as challenging.

Ideation

I created wireframe mockups in the ideation phase, this is all the main pages that solve the problem which I mention above
