MyFitnessPal is a popular calorie tracking app that aims to help uses lead healthier lifestyles by allowing them to log their food, exercise and water intake each day.
To help teach myself a proper design process, I decided to redesign aspects of the app I thought could use some work. I applied user-centered design methods in user research, walkthroughs and prototyping to come to my final result.
Goal: Use the experience of the app to retain more users and create motivation for them to achieve their goals
Research: I talked to short and long-term users to understand the pain points and benefits of the platform.
Concepting: I wireframed and sketched out potential solution to the problems I found from conducting user interviews.
Feedback: I showed my work to other experienced designers to understand what could work, and what didn't.
Mockups: Once I'd reached a solution I believed solved the problems I had found, I delved into designing the look and feel.
Prototyping: I created Keynote prototypes for quick demonstration of the flow and experience. I iterated these as I evolved the design to show the users I had spoken to.
The existing design (dated: October 2014), shown below features a news feed of personal and friends' activity, along with sponsored ads.
