Project Type: Group
My Role: User Researcher
Project Duration: 4 Months
Platform: Mobile Application
Project for: Kodak Alarisis
Tools: Morae, Mr Tappy, Photoshop
The usability test was conducted to evaluate the new, re-designed version of the Kodak Moments mobile application, with younger, social-media and photo-active students. Kodak Moments mobile application is used to create personalized photo products, such as greeting cards, photobooks, gifts, collages and prints, anytime, anyplace. The products can be ordered off-line for pick-up at retail stores, or to be delivered at home. In store, users can wirelessly connect to Wi-Fi enabled Kodak Picture Kiosk to create photo products. Also, users can share the moments that matter with people, and print from their social moments. Versions of the application are available for iPhone (iOS) and Android smartphones, however, we were required to test only the iOS version.
