How monkeytaps started their app design journey
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
The app sends daily motivational and inspirational quotes, and allows users to share or save their favorites.
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the app?
The goal is to have something that Apple would feature, so we're trying to modernize the look of the app into something more modern (material design, gradients, shadows, illustrations...) but staying in the mental health/meditation style. Our users are 20-34 years old, with 70% women and 30% men.
The app allows users to change the theme of the app, so ideally the secondary screens should also reflect some elements of the theme, or at least fit within a wide variety of styles and don't feel completely out of place.
Main screen: Navigate through quotes by swiping horizontally, share or favorite a quote, change themes, change categories and set reminders.
Reminders: Set multiple reminders a day (time and frequency), choose the type of quotes and sound.
Categories: Select from a list of pre-made categories or make your own mix of categories.
Favorites: View a list of your favorite quotes.
More: Secondary features, like search or add your own quote, and standard functionality to contact us, leave a review, or download our other apps.
What to avoid
- The main quote navigation should be full-screen and not horizontal scroll. Avoid vertical list of small quotes.
- If a tab bar is necessary, avoid dead-ends (it should be extremely easy to come back to the main view).
- The design should work as a placeholder for multiple theme. Ideally all the apps should have some design elements from the selected theme.
