What did you learn? — I learned how to create an animation in the prototype. The menu in the last picture slides in like it would in an app.
What was easy? — The overall process of designing was much easier than last project because I now understand how to use components, which makes everything so much easier.
What was challenging? — The hardest part for me was thinking of an app. I wanted to make something I would actually use, and I am horrible at dressing appropriately for the weather so this app is perfect for me.
How could your submission be improved? — The app is pretty simple, and I think I could add more interesting features if I spent more time with it.
How could I improve the assignment for the next class? — I think it might have been helpful to have students come up with more than one app idea. I think it could have led to some more interesting concepts.
How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios? — I will incorporate animations in all my future work that involves prototyping.
How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you? — Seeing the variety of previous projects was helpful during the brainstorming process. They were very creative and helped me get started.
