After testing the low-fidelity prototypes on users last week, I gathered all my new insights which helped me figure out what features to cancel, which ones I need to add, and what to iterate on existing ones.

Moving on from lo-fi to mid-fi prototyping in the next phase, I created more detailed prototypes to better visualize how the product will function. I conducted a total of 9 user interviews. The insights below are suggestions and ideation that came out of this user testing process.

I designed this set of prototypes according to the main 7 key features.

  1. Alarm
  2. Journal
  3. Feed
  4. Dictionary

After creating the Low-fidelity prototypes, I conducted user interviews to get as much insight and feedback as possible.

Week 8 was quite confusing with the whole COVID-19 outbreak here in New York, and also it was Spring Break, so I decided to take some time off — which brings us to week 9: propositional prototyping.

After the ideation from the group sketch sessions, I had so many solutions i wanted to test out. But the first step was to make a mind map of the main components of my app, which are:

  1. Notifications
  2. Recording/Journaling
  3. Dream Feed (to read other’s dreams)
  4. Dictionary of Symbols
  5. Calendar
  6. Profile

I began to sketch by hand first to plan out my prototypes.

How will the user get to the app upon turning of their alarm? Would push notifications pop up? or would they manually need to go to the app and record/type their dreams? …
