The same app you loved and used, made from scratch using Apple Human Interaction Guidelines.
Because why not? For the love of great software and improving my craft.
As a maker of things (pun intended), my role was of a designer (no shit). Thinking of what is required, what problems exist in the current product offering and coming up with ingenious designs to solve those.
Take Location for example, giving the ability to add geo-fenced remider trigger is a given, letting them save locations is good, but using “Smart locations”, such as “While driving” is understanding the problem to the core and solving for it.
It started off as a practice in learning Autolayout. I designed this in figma making it 100% responsive using macOS Monterey components. But once this goal was fulfilled. I started exploring what I would make different? What capability would I add? How will I make things 10x powerful while remaining similarly simple to use.
What process did I follow?
Nothing specific, over the years my process has boiled down to two simple steps.
1. Collect: Problems, ideas, user feedback, internet browsing, inspiration, thoughts.
2. Create: Wireframes, sketchnotes, instant ramen, interfaces, prototypes, visuals.
This runs in a cyclic manner until the result is desirable or I run out of caffeine.
This project is perpetually incomplete. I delibrately skipped out on many things to cut short the scope of this practice project. I did it to learn stuff and enjoy while doing that.
But of course, I am always open to suggestions, ideas and collaborations. If you feel this is something you like/want to do along with me. Get in touch.
