LESSON 4

WhatsApp, Snapchat and Instagram are apps relatively easy to use. All the necessary information is provided, if there is something you do not know, the "help" button is easily reachable, so there is no problem in understanding or finding out what to do next.

On the other side, Facebook and Twitter are more complex apps since both of them have more options. In Facebook, you have many ways to communicate with a friend. With the new actualization, more emojis can be given, therefore, people with no experience in it would not know how to use them. Twitter is also being actualized, with the introduction of news and other media stuff, it becomes more complex.

LESSON 5

This is an interactive app, by using the frontal camera, it can automatically sense your mood and present an app perfect for the moment. This is a good idea for people that don´t know what they are feeling in the moment, let the app help out and enjoy.

It also helps to choose your outfit, when someone is on a rush and doesn't have time to send a picture to their friends and wait for their answer, the app can instantly give you feedback in a few seconds.

The app can make use, as mentioned before, of a camera to identify the user´s face and do all of the functions it´s supposed to make. It is also available to make use of a touchscreen as in an iPad, iPod or iPhone or any other mobile device. At last, a GPS can be used in some games or apps inside the app.

LESSON 8

Idea Storm

  • Include GPS with the fastest way to get to the place.
  • The app can sense the weather and choose the clothes you should wear in order to be comfort.
  • Downloads apps instantly that are likely to be of interest to the user.
  • Has its own social media inside the app.
  • This app is the only app needed for the phone, no further apps will be needed.
  • When downloading the app, it becomes a folder where all the apps are stored, the extra is the type of "Siri" it contains, only that it has more options.

LESSON 9

This app has a unique type of Siri. One of the problems of this Siri in iPhone is the misunderstood of some words and the lack of efficiency in making other things rather than looking for your answers in the internet. With this app, the inside-robot becomes your friend and gets to know almost everything you want and need.

Another app that is like this one, has mini-games inside of the downloaded app. The difference between them is that my app can download apps, not just mini-games.

People are likely to get confused when the app is not as they expected, with this app, an initial tutorial with the inside-robot will be explained interactively so there are no further questions.

LESSON 10

  • Deference. The user interface is an important element for people that are starting to use the app, but it should never obstruct the use of the app, it must be hidden from the navigation.
  • Variety. Since it has many features, the app provides the customer different services.
  • Consistent. The app allows the user to find everything that he/she needs at the moment.
  • Colorful. It is a striking app that catches the attention of the customer with a colorful background and apps.
  • Clarity. The text is easily understood, the background changes if the text has a similar color.
  • Understood. With the added function of a robot, it is easily understandable when it speaks to the user.

LESSON 11

The app that I found is "Missiles", it is an interesting app because of the simplicity of the icon, it has just a plane in it and its easy to identify the app when looking for it. The bright colors and the plane make it stand out from the other apps.

The app that I found interesting is the same as the one above "Missiles". This happens because you can start playing the game with a very brief tutorial, it is entertaining and easily played.
