02

User research conducted amongst target users and basic wire-frame app visuals.

These wire-frame sketches show a preliminary prototype of the app, depicting an example journey through the different screens. These 6 screens show how a new item is added to the Shopping List.

KEY ISSUES The key issues identified during user research; Users find asking each other for money awkward, even if its money that is owed to them. Users often forget to buy shared household items. No way to monitor status of appliances within the household Forgetfulness leads to cleaning being neglected

The App will also have connected home functionality, allowing the user to connect to appliances and utilities within the home - making shared life easier.
