Cookmate was a team project in the advanced Human-Computer Interaction course. It went through similar process as the first one, but with more emphasis on quantitative analysis. As a result, the project not only had to be more user-friendly comparing to existing product. It had to allow user to get information they need faster as well. It was a challenging project. We spent lots of time on user testing and cross-examinations, and re-iterated the user interface. The result was not apparently better than the alternatives, but our target users preferred Cookmate nonetheless.
Note. Cookmate is designed to be an iPhone app and was built with iWebkit framework. It’s only compatible with Webkit-based browser like Safari and Chrome.
