Shortlist

Answer the following questions before you start the design

  • Which problem does your application solve?
  • Who will be using your application?
  • When and where will people use your application?
  • What makes your application mobile?
  • What makes your application better than others?
  • How do you make money with your app?
  • How do you sustain your app (why do people continue buying your app or its content)?
  • What is the name of your application (the shorter the better)?

Steps to design your application

  • Idea
  • Write down all goals - with somebody else
  • Introduce and group goals
  • Vote for groups (vote per person = groups/2)
  • Prioritize by votes - and business drivers
  • Create a flow-end based on a goal
  • Define a start point (maybe the splash screen of your application)
  • Fill the necessary steps between the start point and the flow end
  • Create flows for all goals
  • Sort the flows (which flows belong together)
  • Group flow steps to views
  • Find a matching navigation structure
  • Prioritize functions and information
  • Compose your view
  • Test it
  • Re-design where necessary
  • Continue testing and adjusting the design


Problems

  1. When do you choose a tumbler instead of a list? Do not restrict this problem to Series 40 Full Touch LCDUI or Nokia UI.
  2. How do you use radio buttons and when do you use check boxes?
  3. Check ”panta rhei” from www.wikipedia.org
  4. Compose a view
  • Business driver is to sell e-tickets for a soccer game within an entire soccer league
  • In the previous view, the user has chosen this certain game. For this game she wants to buy tickets
  • Only Series 40 full touch
  • No category bar, standard header bar and Back button
  • View items [amount of votes, max 8]
  * Buy tickets (link) [6]
  * More information about the stadium (info) [1]
  * Show how many tickets have been bought for this game by this user (info) [8]
  * Display the e-tickets [6]
  * Show start time (info) [7]
