This week I’ve been digitizing wireframe sketches for the “Lunch Money Buddy” app I am currently building. The trouble I’ve found is that perhaps because this is a new field for me that I am not remembering everything the app needs to have. Having others critique my work has been insightful and also ironic as I was complimented on my simple app design. I have to wonder, “Is this because I’ve never built and app and I’m missing pieces?”
I’ve found that I’m paying close attention to the apps I use on my phone and how they are laid out, especially financial apps. It reminds me of when I was in art school and learning about color. You start to notice that every day objects have many more colors and details.
Overall I hope I’m building this in a way that people could actually use. I’m pretty unsure at this point but feel confident that in the end I’ll produce a great app.
