A low fidelity, clickable prototype was first produced for initial usability testing.
5/5 users succeeded in accomplishing the first task of creating a new Rhythem account by linking a music streaming profile, and 4/5 users succeeded in finding a match specific to certain musical preferences.
All users tested felt comfortable with the design and function of the prototype, and found it intuitive and learnable compared to similar apps.
High Fidelity Mockups
Linking existing music streaming profiles (e.g. Spotify, Apple Music) to import music data.
Searching for other users based on favorite shared artists, songs, or albums.
Viewing the type of music events (concert, festivals, jazz bars, etc.) a user likes to attend.
Low Fidelity Wireframes
With the assistance of designers and software developers, my team and I are looking forward to conducting further user research, and eventually bringing a minimum viable product launch of Rhythem for the App Store and Google Play.
An MVP for iOS and Android...
Based on our user data and research, our team decided to focus on specific features that would improve upon elements of current available dating apps. We also designed for features that would enable users to import music streaming data from external apps in order to use music related filtering options that were unique to Rhythem.
