Photo-Sharing iPhone App and Supporting Website

While intern­ing at Clix­tr Inc., I worked on a pho­to-shar­ing iPhone app called PicBounce. In addi­tion to assist­ing with inter­ac­tion design on the native iOS app, I designed and styled the product’s land­ing page, as well as sup­port­ing pages for view­ing and shar­ing pho­tos on the web.

For this project I worked in XCode to cre­ate inter­ac­tive ele­ments for iOS devices. I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to add user inter­face ele­ments as we expand­ed the fea­tures of the app. I designed new fil­ter effects and back­grounds for pho­tos, added inter­face ele­ments, and improved the over­all look and feel of the appli­ca­tion.

Anoth­er one of my major respon­si­bil­i­ties was design­ing and build­ing pages in HTML, CSS, and Ruby for the PicBounce web app. These pages allowed users to view the pho­tos that they uploaded and share via the includ­ed URL. For this pri­mar­i­ly mobile app, I cre­at­ed respon­sive lay­outs for full desk­top browsers as well as small­er device screens.

Work­ing on this app also pro­vid­ed valu­able expe­ri­ence around launch­ing a prod­uct. I start­ed work­ing for Clix­tr before the ini­tial release of PicBounce, and active­ly par­tic­i­pat­ed in prepa­ra­tion for the launch. This includ­ed design­ing pro­mo­tion­al mate­ri­als, build­ing a Face­book page, and doing research to deter­mine the best strat­e­gy for releas­ing the prod­uct. The release of the app was suc­cess­ful and it reached num­ber one in the iOS App Store under the Social Net­work­ing cat­e­go­ry.
