Hi Jayadeep -- cheers to recognizing the value of getting feedback!


Could I recommend that you look into contracting UX professionals to conduct some user research and usability testing of what you have so far? That's the sure way to get useable and actionable guidance.


It's well documented that if you present people with your work and ask if they like it, either you'll get people unconsciously saying "oh, you did a good job" or you'll end up chasing five different personal tastes from three people giving feedback. Usability testing is a rigorous discipline that, in the right hands, can give real data on what likely users really need, how you might meet those needs, and in the end produce a product with a much higher chance at being of use to people (that is, customers).


This can be done in-person or remotely. And good information can be gleaned from even five participants, if chosen well.

Good luck!

I think it is a great idea and it works well. I have to say that it needs to be improved in terms of UX and design in order to be more competitive.

Great idea! But definitely needs some work on the ui/ux side. Too many boxes in boxes that are not aligning and buttons that are too smal to be tabbed.

Hi Jayadeep,

It's a really good concept and adding to Daniel's points that you probably need to hire a contractor to help you collect user experience feedback and redesign the flow and enhance the UI elements.


As a first time users, i got stuck on the signup form with so many fields to fill out and i wonder if you could explain more on why signup or signin is super important right from the beginning because when i do designs, i would try to nudge the signup or login part to make it less intrusive and still serves the purpose.


Let me know if it needs more explanations.


thanks.

Hey Jayadeep,


In addition to what Daniel Turner said, I suggest you try the following scenarios in order to help you test the usability of your app.

  1. Gather some potential users (through any means necessary, ads, personally approaching them, etc...).
  2. Have them understand that they are testing the usability of your app. This is important because you need to video record the sessions for later reviewing.
  3. Prepare specific usage scenarios for your app (User Stories if you will), and ask the testers to do them. For example ask them to sign up, or search for something, etc...
  4. Based on the way you seem them fumbling around / or directly reaching their goal, you'll have a better understanding of your usability.

Hope this helps. Best of luck,
Mohamed Nassar
