Suggestion inpiration buttom in OptiscanApps QR generator
I’ve been following the trend of QR codes and I would like to share some thoughts and ideas that been spinning around in my head for some time….
My understand of QR is that it has been growing big as a new tool in marketing. A new solution to reach the audience.
It has the advantage to bring a customer relevant information or entertaining on a specific location.
It’s also possible to get statistics on the numbers of scans which can be used to effectively measure the numbers of people you reach
This is great for the companies but what about the enduser?
Maybe the opportunities of QR-codes aren’t that obvious to the user. The user might need some “help” to see the advantages and to use it efficiently.
So I been looking into OptiscanApp which seems to be on the same track because they provide a QR generator in there QR app.
Witch I think is great because it could give the public a chance to, in a easy way try out and use QR.
And at the same time educate themselves about how to use QR.
However, when I open the QR generator and got the the menu with the different QR generator solutions I felt a bit confused and I thought “how is this useful to me?”
So I want to add a feature that maybe could help.
My suggestions is a button that will take the user to a new advice and inspiration page. This new window that appear could contain many things but for example:
How users have used QR codes Invitation cards, posters etc.
Products with QR codes on.
You can activate the button by holding on it and swiping down
I have chosen to make a new design for the button because:
I want the user to experience curiosity.
When dragging something down it would be expected that something falls down.
In this case it could be a new “inspiration page” falling down in a short animation.
In this app standard buttons placed in the top are not excepted to bring the user to a new page.
I also have ideas on how the “inspiration page” could look like but that might be another post.
Well that’s all for now.
Icon Suggestion for Systembolagets app
I’ve been looking into Systembolagets app lately.
I think it looks great in many ways but it’s one detail that I’ve been thinking on.
To me I don’t instantly understand what the icon for “pris”(price in swedish) is suppose to look like.
With the context “pris” I understand that it’s looks like a stack of bills.
But without the context it could be any kind of stacked cards.
Personally I prefer when a icon are able to explain itself without the use of context.
So I have made a suggestion on a different icon.
Hopefully this icon are easier to understad without using the context but are still connected to the context.
See pictures below
Heres just a followup on my last post. I’ve linked the post on the app design suggestion on Eniros app so above you can se the whole conversation. So as I interpreted from this is that there will soon be a delete feature in the app as I suggested. And hopefully my input could bring some value for the development team. Anyway next post will be a design suggestion on Systembolagets app.
My design suggestion for Eniros mobile app
I been looking into Eniros AR navigation function in there app.
So basically when you search for a store or company you get the option to go to reality navigation witch mean you get in AR mode.
In AR mode can easily see the direction of you target by box icons appearing in the camera and you can easily follow them. (Picture below)
I think it’s a really clever solution for musing AR.
But personally I felt overwhelmed of all windows popping up in front of the camera screen and had a hard time see where I was actually going.
Well my idea I got then was to make some sort of delete function so the user can clear the view.
So I tweeted Eniro this and got this response.
I think it’s really nice when a company accepts input from the public and are easy to contact.
Anyway as an mobile app UX/UI designer I was more curious to actually try my idea out.
So down below you can see that I added a few details to the current Eniro app.
In the three yellow boxes and the red one I have added a “x in a circle” button icon.
The idea is that when you press it you will close it in the same way you are used to close down webb-pages.
I have left a few boxes untouched so you can se how it currently looks like without the x-buttom.
What do you think? is this an improvement?
Pleas leet me know.
So this is me.
I’m Anton Håkanson.
Currently I’m studying at Mobile application at Hyper island.
So I’m learning how to come up with, design and develop mobile apps from scratch t finished product.
Im also learning teamwork and work as a project manager in my team.
As a person:
I take life lightly and with a sense of humor.
I am social but in the same way I am a thinker and don’t mind thinking throughout stuffs in peace.
Analytic and logical in my way of thinking and usually end up with unique thoughts.
I believe most problems in life can be solved with my calm and logic approach
As a mobile UX/UI designer:
I’m focusing on keeping my app really simple to understand and to use.
I believe that if I can’t open a app and instantly know exactly how to use it then I need to get back to the drawing board.
It’s no webb-site are software we are talking about.
As a Project manager:
I believe in communication, easy to understand goals and motivation for the team.
Openness for trying new methods are key to me ad my team usually have a few surprises to expect during a project.
But I always keep high expectation on our work.

You can talk to me about:
Mobile UI/UX design
