2. Expand on features
3. Create "my calendar"
Today I created a logo, created the 2 home screens in PPT, created the "Sign Up" login for the app. The 2nd screen home page may change because I'm not too fond of the icons. Today was very productive and I hope to continue tomorrow by creating
Today I'm creating the home screen and the opening profile login questions. I'm getting ready for the big day...8/13!
I also created the logo, which I'm in love with!!!
Also, to quickly preview the design ppt, I am utalizing the button option on my blog. Check out "HepCure design"
1. Design Home Screen of App and opening profile questions
2. Continue reviewing other app designs
3. Develop "my calendar"
Today was pretty productive, I accomplished my daily goals! I looked through iTriage, HealthTap, and pingmd. PingMD wasn't as wonderful as I thought it would be, HealthTap is an amazing tool, but it more like a social app than a helpful patient/doctor app, and iTriage is a great app, but covers too large of a view.
I have plenty of ideas of things to bring to our app by looking through other apps:
I actually got more done today than I expected...so I have less work for the weekend. However, I still want to explore other apps and sketch out my design ideas. I am waiting for an algorithm for treat now or later in "treatment."
A great way to get more people to use the app is to use tactics that work. I came across this feature in iTriage and thought, "wow! that's very smart. We should do that."
iTriage has a discount program with pharmacies for it's users. Here is what it does: "The iTriage discount prescription program provides discounts of 10-85% on brand and generic medications. Present this screen with a valid prescription at a participating pharmacy, and your discount will be applied."
It would be great if we can partner with some pharmacies or grocery stores and get discounts out to HepCure users .For example, we can have a 10% discount at a local supermarket if you have the app, which encourages healthy eating. We can inform users of healthy living events around their area, for example, $10 off bike rentals on 8/3. Or, we can partner with pharmacies for discounts on meds.
Ponni brought up the idea of having an app survey, which I believe is a great idea. A week after using the app, we can send a notification and ask the customer for feedback. Here are some questions that I think we should include:
Below are customer reviews about the app.
However, I have a few reviews of my own. I enjoyed playing with the app because, yes, it was intuitive and easy to navigate through. It was simple and sophisticated. It was personalized with profile pics and cover photos. It did a wonderful job of connecting patients and doctors. However, it was too geared to be a social app, rather than a medical app that offers info. yes, it informed me, yes, it engaged me, but it was too e-community heavy. All of the posts were sent out by doctors and it was just too much like FACEBOOK! Another thing that I didn't like is it focused very little on tracking the disease and progress, etc. I also got frustrated because it relied on internet to function, much like facebook. Most people use health apps, or any apps, while on the train or somewhere where wifi may not be available. Overall, it's a great app, but it isn't something that I want to see HepCure turn into.
Compared to the iPad app, the iPhone app is more concise and easier to navigate through. It has all the key info on a confined screen. It is wonderful and is still fully functional.
