"Ljubomir, creates reliably great UX designs. He quickly effortlessly takes rough UI and converts it into polished/sleek UX. I've learned quite a few tactics for solving different UI problems from him. He is very dedicated and wants to see projects through. He even looked at an old and closed project and handed me an additional graphic for it. He goes out of his way to learn new information and stay current about UX design and Android."

Project Overview

When I joined this project this was an existing app called Ghost Photo. Due to the name the app was being confused with apps that claim to take actual ghost photos, so it needed a new name and a redesign with the focus being on making it easy to set up the camera to take photos of you in set time intervals. Target audience for the app are young people leading an active lifestyle.

My contribution

As this was an existing app the first step was to analyze the flow and overall aesthetic appeal of the app. After that my job was to simplify the process as much as possible and make it intuitive for the users, as well as improve the visual appeal of the entire app. The most important part of the project was designing the onboarding flow that ensures a smooth experience for the user.

Improving the user experience

The first step was to look at the current way the app was structured to make sure there aren't any problems in the flow. Since this was an existing app there wasn't too much room for change but we did decide to add an onboarding flow and tidy up some minor interactions.

User Flow

We added a short onboarding flow that points out the main elements of the app, like the interval selector, shooting button and image gallery.

Onboarding flow

Each time a user starts and stops shooting, the app creates a new session and adds it to the photo sessions gallery in chronological order. This helps keep thing organized and let's the users easily find what they are looking for.

Photo sessions gallery

Within each session user can select the photos they like the best and share them directly from the app, or send them to their favorite photo editing app for further refinements.

Interactive prototype

On this link you can try out an interactive prototype of the app made using ProtoPie.

Branding

As we were doing a complete visual overhaul of the app it also needed a new logo and icon. The icon is a combination of a camera and a timer icon.
