Product Hunt for iPhone
Official Product Hunt app. Featured by Apple in the US App Store as well as in TechCrunch, The Verge, Fox, Bloomberg, and more.
The Discovr team was responsible for all design and development of the first iOS app for US based startup Product Hunt. We developed the first two major releases of the official Product Hunt app, as well as a heap of minor iterations. Our work started with creating the very first Product Hunt app concept designs, and continued on to all prototyping, interface design, experience design, usability testing, quality assurance, interface code, full app software development, and project management for the app.
We worked directly with Ryan Hoover from the beginning of the project up until the company secured Series A funding. After the fundraise, the company had enough resources to expand and build a proper in-house product team so we helped transition the app to the new team who went on to develop all later versions of the app.
The current version of the app is live, but the recent versions with the Tinder style UI were designed and developed by the Product Hunt inhouse team. Detailed case study is available on request.
Flipcase for iPhone
A game that uses the case of the iPhone 5c to play Connect Four.
Featured in The Next Web, GigaOm, Huffington Post, Techcrunch, and The Verge.
I was responsible for the initial concept, user interface and animation prototyping, user experience design, and final user interface design. The lead Discovr developer was responsible for all code. I also did all marketing, promo videos, press, and business.
This app requires an iPhone 5c and matching case to play the game, so the best way to experience this app now is to watch the 1 minute promo video.
