Yahoo! Weather App

Winner of a 2013 Apple Design Award

The problem to solve was “To delightfully give user’s the info they wanted”. Challenges – stakeholders wanted to add a large amount of new, detailed weather data in a traditional, tabbed, multi-screen mobile UI. To dive deeper into what was happening with current users, I had the team install analytics on the old Android app. Surprisingly we found most users opening the app up to 3x daily for about 10 seconds. This data insight paved the way to exploration around the new UI ideas.  Next came ideation, sketching, creating and pitching a number of prototypes to Yahoo’s CEO, upper management and Apple executives. The final design gave users the snippet of info they were looking for, but also the delight of a beautifully shot local photo and option to explore more data with a simple swipe up. Contribution – Full lifecycle of Yahoo! Weather app creation
