Our proposed solution

Our proposed solution

We focus and improve upon three core features of the app in order to appeal to a wider demographic. Through three separate ‘user stories’ we present new systems for the main newsfeed, a filtering system and bookmarking articles.

Newsfeed Layout

Problem: The layout and buttons styles of the articles are almost identical to most other current news apps.

Solution: We’ve implemented a different approach in which the images are emphasized and edited to better fit the overall aesthetic of the brand.

Categories to follow

Problem: The old app prompts the user to ‘check’ several categories to follow upon the app’s first use, and is no longer accessible afterwards.

Solution: Our solution is to give the user the ability to revisit these “topics” and to be able to follow or unfollow them at any given time.

Bookmark System

Problem: The current system groups all saved articles into a single, constrained feed that is not quickly accessible by the user.

Solution: Users will have the option to quickly save an article into customizable “boards” so that they may find it more easily later on.

Project Reflections

For Alexis and I, this was one of our first collaborative projects. We learned the value of being able to utilize each other's skillsets while also having an invested, second opinion on each piece of the process.

Plus, being able to work with Gannett themselves throughout the process was an awesome experience as they were able to critique us in a more professional way than a classroom offers.
