  2. 2. What’s the problem with weather? User research Interviewed 5 users (!) 2 distinct use-cases for checking the weather Time constraints = focus on users checking the weather in Singapore “Tell me about your pains, pleasures, context, behaviour when thinking about the weather in general”
  3. 3. Key takeaways Pains Perceived inaccuracy, unpredictability Unexpected rain hindering movements Pleasures Visual representation of weather Feeling prepared, secure Context At home, the night before, and/or morning of, an outdoor activity or commute Behaviour Changes plans if necessary Prepares umbrella if necessary ESSENCES Use of multiple methods not enough to verify Visual confirmation Checks for other people
  4. 4. Q: HOW CAN I DESIGN A WEATHER APP TO ASSURE USERS AND PROTECT THEM FROM THE VAGARIES OF THE WEATHER? Pre-solution user storyboard
  5. 5. Aggregate weather sources and remember the umbrella Prototype v1.0 Sketching features Lotsofpaperlater… KEEPING IN MIND: Avoiding pains, seeking pleasures Brainstorming feedback, user notes Contextual details
  6. 6. “WILL IT BLEND?” Prototype v1.0
  7. 7. Usability testing: “No prototype survives first contact with a user” v 1.0 feedback and iterations “Too cluttered, words too small” —> split into 2 screens “‘All days’ option in reminder settings” —> added v 1.1 feedback and iterations No-one clicked “See weather sources” —> Removed section from app home screen Tried to tap on each average weather forecast to see source breakdown —> Weather sources breakdown on new screen Task 1: Decide whether or not you should go to MacRitchie Reservoir for a hike this afternoon Task 2: Guard against the rain before you leave home
