Payment Schedule App
I've long wished for a simplistic app for money management. Of the ones I've tried, they are often bloated with features and are generally unusable.
My ideal 'money app' shows only two types of information:
- your current bank balance (automatically updated via an API)
- a list of regular scheduled payments organised by date
With this, and only this, information I can decide upon whether I can afford to spend.
I quickly (very) roughly sketched the idea down on paper to think through key features and user journeys, and to validate the idea in my head.
Then it was a case of designing the screens based on those quick low fidelity wireframes.
I decided to focus the design of the app solely for iOS as it's the Operating System I have most experience designing for.
Therefore as a result, with consideration for Apple's Human Interface Guidelines, I realigned some elements to follow best practice for iOS apps. The hamburger menu was dropped for a Tab Bar as this is the best way to organise information, and it ensures that users won't have to find hidden areas of the app.
Using Marvel App, I created an interactive prototype to test both layout and interaction. You can interact with the prototype below.
