Meditation App UX Exercise
Note: this is a personal project to bend an app to my will — I am not affiliated in any way with Calm. I did not design these screens -- I only modified them for this exercise.
As I wrote previously, I found it odd that I couldn't download the daily 10-minute meditations for offline use in the Calm app. I experienced frustration when I hit a wall not finding a feature I felt should be there, so I attempted a possible UI solution. In this case, I am the user and the tester. Read more about the solution and my process.
I rearranged the icons on the audio clip screen and used matching iconography indicating "download" to denote the ability to save the clip to the phone for offline use. I also added a "Manage downloads" section to the profile area that acts as a file management screen where the user can delete old files if they wish.
TL;DR - What I’ve Done
Evaluated and produced a potential new user flow in Sketch
Modified screenshots in Photoshop
Designing minimal iconography for the solution in Illustrator
Built interactive prototype in InVision
