As a small cross-functional team within the company, we were tasked to define, design, prototype and implement an iPad application in just eight weeks. Each member of the team was working on other projects as well, and none of us had experience designing or developing for the iPad.
Similar to the Kosmix web site, the app allowed users to explore magazine-style topic pages with relevant videos, photos, news, opinions and communities. For the mobile version, we decided to emphasize on browsing rather than searching, and designed a rich, visually compelling UI.
We also displayed additional content, related to the original topic, to allow for a continuous browsing experience.
