As a user, I can login to the app from these screens. I am also able to create an account using a pre-existing Google or Facebook account for more flexibility.
When I first log into the app, I am greeted by a dashboard indicating the items I have put on my watchlist. These items are organized by category for convenience. Underneath this space are deals curated to me based on my interests which helps make shopping much easier.
The trends screen is one I find most useful when I am trying to find the lowest price possible. I simply choose one of the items from my watchlist to show the price data for and the trends are automatically tracked for me.
When I need to see what other buyers have to say about a product, I automatically refer to the review screen. MetaBuy's algorithm gathers all reviews from across the web into a single location. The way the app can assign recommendations based on reviews is extremely handy too.
Part the appeal of the MetaBuy app is also providing the user with the latest deals from online retailers catered specifically to their taste. The app learns the habbits of the user but also allows deal hunters to filter by category among other filters. The deals screen also allows users to easily add items to their watchlist.
The watchlist is where I designate all the products, I am looking to track which powers most of the app. By adding products from the web into my watchlist, the app can give me up to date information reducing my time spend on the web every day.
In future projects, sketch wireframes with more detail showing exactly how the app will be used including navigation and workflows. I also want to maintain more consistency and detail in my designs. I think I will also try to begin consulting with experts in UX during the design process besides just afterwards. Finally I'm going to put much more emphasis onto the UX side of the process. To do this, I'm going to plan my design with wireframes so I can understand how I want the app to behave before I even think about designs.
