In order to study the target audience and gain a deeper understanding of the difficulties of winery owners and wine lovers, the survey was published on social media and various platforms in order to reach as many people as possible. Over 350 people participated in the survey. Their answers provided a broad picture. The questions included tried to find out how many people really like wine, what their level of proficiency is, what are their wine consumption habits and how do they fit into their lifestyle.
When I asked people open-ended questions about what features they would like to have in their wine app – the most frequently repeated answers were:
For the competitive analysis, 2 similar applications were selected. Some have problems characterizing them as well as strengths I had not thought of before. Therefore, the research began with a focus on the user experience – taking from them points of preservation and improvement as well as a comparison between the various features provided in those applications.
A persona is a fictitious character, which represents an “average” user of the system. This figure is used to analyze and understand the needs of that user and to design an interface that will satisfy him. Persona characterization or even several personas – in interface designed for different audiences – is a direct product of user research. We have gathered all the user insights and created main personas. This step helps us stay focused on the user’s needs.
After creating the persons I follow up with empathy mapping. this stage helped meidentify the gaps between the users needs and current solution they are using.
The Storyboard describes the path a customer takes on his way to fulfilling his goal. When examining a user journey, we focus on the various points of interaction between the user and the product and the service he receives, whether they provide a solution to his pain points, goals, and motives. It also examines what decisions he has to make during the journey, and how they affect the continuation of the route.
The user flow helped me organize the structure and how particular task will be done by theuser from their entry point through a set of steps towards successful outcome final action.
I created a user map which helped me plan the navigation system accordingto the user’s needs. Of course Later I used the user map to build my wireframes
I quickly converted my ideas on paper and created a low fidelitywireframing to make it easier and understandable to validate my proposed solution.
After I created the low fidelity wireframes I rearrange everythingand created higher quality wireframes. Over 40 different screens were created.
These onboarding screens purposes is to display the functions and benefits of the app and to collect information that can be used to deliver personalized content and notifications.
Our Quick Login feature allows you to log in without requiring you to enter your password again. The sign-up form is neutral and doesn’t have a ton of colors, It’s easy on the eyes with a minimalist design and a clear user interface. The form fields are also short.
The app’s questions focus on the user’s preferences regarding his consumer culture, so we can know what content to offer and provide him.
The best application for locating wineries in Israel using various filtering options of your choice. If you are on vacation and looking for a different and unique experience or you just want to enjoy a good and quality wine – this is the app for you!
To validate and test my app, I conducted usability test on 3 keymoments and 8 users.
I then transcripted the results of my test, and used it to create a new affinity map. with the insight of the map, I filled a rainbow spreadsheet.
Here are a few of the changes made due to the test results
6 out of 8 users had difficulty finding the ‘Add friend’ button, claiming that this action is of paramount importance in an app that aims to create a community.
5 out of 8 users complained that there are no prices on the various wine bottles, information that they claim is essential when presenting a product.
