  3. 3. Saved from the to-do list (a happymoment shared with the gf)(see attached pdf)
  4. 4. Starting the day off on the right note(see attached pdf)
  5. 5. HappyList Sketch(See screenshots in attached PDF)
  6. 6. Features/Functionalities● Visualize future happy moments with a saved photo, images from the web, or a finger painting● Store your favorite moments in "Special Moments" section● Tag people who are in your moment in-app or via email● Allow text, audio, or picture comments around a moment● Savor your moments or moments shared with you
  7. 7. Theoretical Justifications● Anticipating a laugh reduces stress hormones: bit.ly/JTK6Nt● The moments spent anticipating a vacation provide as much happiness as the actual vacation: http://bit.ly/IUL1MH● Positive future thinking moderates the relationship between stress and hopelessness: http://bit.ly/JygfML
  8. 8. User research(Super preliminary)● 1 person - stole their phone and input a future happy boost to simulate a shared happy moment"● 4 people - showed them conceptual design(Future)● Make multiple wireframe mockups to test the design● Use FB private groups to test the concept and user interaction● Functional iPhone app (hopefully)
  9. 9. Shortcoming of design● Habituation to morning/nighly notifications● Apps are hidden majority of the time unlike desktop widgets or physical objects● May not be as viral as other apps without FB, Twitter integration● App distribution has more friction than website distribution● iOS only is limited and ignores 50% of the market
  10. 10. What else is possible?● Creating a to-do list or calendar extension that features happy moments youre looking forward to● Creating a desktop widget that is always present to decrease reliance on push notifications● Perhaps include some integration with other social networks for sharing moments
  11. 11. Next Steps in Design Process● Create wireframe of new app design and test interaction with users● Recruit users to a private FB group to share moments were looking forward to● Possibly begin some very early iPhone coding
  12. 12. Summary● iPhone app - social way to share anticipated moments● Future testing - interactive mockups, testing the concept through a FB group, and an iPhone app● Contact Info?? -- mmcghie@stanford.edu
