Windows Phone Design Consultation: Freda


In part three of our ongoing series featuring Windows Phone design consultations, we have Jim Chapman, an independent developer who created Freda, a comprehensive and feature-laden ebook reader app for Windows Phone 8. The free app is truly a labour of love that Jim has developed in his spare time over the past few years.

But during that time, Jim has added so many features and options that the app has become somewhat overloaded for the average user.

Since he is not a professional user experience designer, Jim knew there were places within the app where the user flow was disjointed, and he was keen to learn some ideas for how to make it better.

Jim had the opportunity to meet with Dave Crawford, design lead at Microsoft, to get advice about how to improve his app.
