Survey Results

Key points

  1. 95% of respondents said they save content online either sometimes or often.
  2. 77% stated they bookmark it in their browser and 63% said they download content.
  3. 82% said they often or sometimes write notes to save for later, whether for personal or work purposes.

The majority of respondents stated that they would like the process of saving or adding content was more organized. Because users will be able to save content they find online as well as add their own content such as notes or images, organization will be a main focus for the project. Also, because many stated they use it for work purposes, adding a collaboration feature to the MVP will be ideal to obtain users across a larger spectrum. Additional findings from the survey indicated that having a website for the service would be a given but desktop and mobile applications and possibly a built-in browser widget will be beneficial for growth.

Conclusion

Many tools were used in creating Cloud Space and many areas were new to me. During this project I was able to learn concepts in user experience, surveying and research, user interface design, prototyping, and web development. Not only learning these concepts but understanding the reasoning behind why each one is done and the order in which they are done have be extremely helpful for how I layout, plan and allocate time for future projects.
