We were challenged to take an existing app and analyze UI elements which would benefit from changes. Our changes to Quench, which connects users to the nearest location they can fill their water bottle, included replacing the nav bar with a map/list view buttons, replacing the 'official' stamp with a verified tick and removing information that wasn't being utilised. Original screens are on the left side and redesigns are on the right.
After determining usability issues with the app, we created sketches with possible solutions to these issues. We felt that as users were not adding their own locations and were unlikely to be interested in the About Quench section, the home screen only needed a map/list view toggle. By adding information to the location labeller, users could potentially get all the information needed with one tap.
The redesigned experience is a lot simpler and cleaner, gives you more freedom to see only what you want to see, makes giving feedback easier and is easier to navigate.
