Starting the design

Paper wireframes

I did a quick ideation exercise to come up with ideas for how to address gaps identified in the competitive audit. My focus was specifically on easy to use functionality.

Digital wireframes

After ideating and drafting some paper wireframes, I created the initial designs for the Medicine Reminder app. These designs focused on easy to add medicines and reminders.

Usability study: findings

I have conducted usability studies, the study helped me to guide the design from wireframe to mockup. Used a high-fidelity prototype and revealed what aspects of the mockups needed refining.

Users want an app that very easy to use and they can add reminders very easily.

Add background

Some user wants to add video in background in reminder screen.

Reminder for volume
