NOTES Research

Interactions with Apple Watch are measured in seconds, so an app must quickly provide the user with essential information. Therefore, a designer needs to make sure that there is an understanding of the context for the use case—not just how people will interact with the app itself, but what they’re doing “in real life” around those moments, and when information should be presented to them.

NOTES Research

Three primary themes that define the design approach according to the Apple website are: Glanceable Glanceable apps make the most important information readily available to the user. Interactions occur over short periods of time, so apps must convey the most important information up front and communicate that information clearly and without distraction. Actionable

Actionable apps are mindful of the information they present to the user. An actionable app anticipates the user’s needs by ensuring that what’s onscreen is always current and relevant.

Responsive It responds to user interactions with immediate feedback about what the app is going to do, and then uses notifications to deliver progress updates later.

NOTES UX/UI Strategy

Through this music app design, I am aiming to design a sleek and unique design that is straightforward and easy to use on a small wearble device. Almost everything that a user could need to interact with the music app, is presented to them on one screen.
