UX Final Project
WHAT TO PACK
Questions for User Testing:
1.How well do you think you pack your luggage without forgetting anything?
2.How do you pack (or What’s your process to pack) your luggage for traveling?
3.What is the worst part of packing? or What would be the most helpful to make your packing process?—Do you write down a list things you need? This product does help to pack easily and efficiently?
4.What do you think this product about?
5.What is the first thing you noticed about this product?
6.Would it be helpful if there is a list to buy for trip?
7.Would you like to be reminded the most important things such as passport and flight tickets right before when you are leaving like a last call? If so, is an alarm message enough?
8.Do you want to know about the weather of destinations?
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a leading nonsectarian, nongovernmental international relief and development organization based in the United States, with operations in over 40 countries. The IRC’s mission is to provide emergency relief, post-conflict development and resettlement services; to work for the protection of human rights; and to advocate for those uprooted or affected by violent conflict and oppression. Composed of first responders, humanitarian relief workers, international development experts, health care providers, and educators, the IRC has assisted millions of people around the world since its founding in 1933.
Current IRC Website:
Among lots of mobile apps, most have trouble to maintain regular users since many of users don't use apps once they downloaded or used once or twice. Or some simply don't want to download apps.
IRC is a donation and non-profit site, so the most important thing to consider is to make it easy to access. Therefore, I think it would be better to make a mobile web instead of an app. IRC is active in many different cities all over the world. I believe first time visitors may be interested in how IRC is working and what they're doing nearby where users are. My mobile web concept is based on locations where users are residing or users are curious about.
In further, this mobile web tells the stories about IRC's activities happening in that areas. It will engage users and lead them to donate at the end. This concept based on very narrative storytelling will attract users' interest and very effective to make users understand what IRC is doing, why they need support, and users' donation is meaningful and grateful.

user experience problem:
messy, hard to open and don’t provide enough ketchup
Heinz Dip & Squeeze, dual-function packaging gives users two ways to serve ketchup: either tear off the tip to squeeze with pinpoint accuracy, or peel back the lid for easy dipping.
To revolutionize something, you need to think creatively, solve a real problem and approach the solution from a different perspective than before.
UX core experience design_D.I’s Travel App
This app is to help you pack your bags and organize everything you need for your trip. On the first page, there are three options you can choose: add a new trip, see previous trip packing list or check your favorite packing list. If you want to add a new trip, you can add it below with information about trip name, destination, and days you are going to trip.
The second page is where you will see items by different categories including wardrobe, paperwork, and electronic devices. Each category has a drop down menu to see all the items and you can check the items you need to pack. When you are done adding items to you list, tab save button.
The third page shows how many items you added to your list with numbers in red next to category names. Now you can see your items on the packing list and start packing!
Website Comparison: Menupages vs Urbanspoon
NYC is the one of the best cities for food lovers because it has tons of restaurants with various food options. I'd love to try out different restaurants in NYC and Menupages is one of websites I regularly visit to find information about restaurants. Urbansoon is a website similar to Menupages providing New York restaurants and reviews. So, I decided to compare Menupages and Urbanspoon.
Both websites provide restaurant lists with menu and reviews that help customers to make the right decisions.
First, both websites have user friendly search feature that is quick and easy to search. Users can search restaurants by typing in search box, cuisine, neighborhoods, or features. One big difference is that Menupages has more search options which users can easily find narrowed down choices. Urbanspoon has a single search option at a time.
When you open the first pages of both websites, Menupages provides better user experience. Its UX design, use of consistent color and simple interface make users easy to navigate and understand what features and contents it has.
For menu listing service, Menupages is much better to me. It provides menus in both pdf version and direct view on the web. Urbanspoon also provides menu information, but the format is varied and some restaurants menus are missing and inconsistent, which is distracting. However, Urbanspoon has a great photo feature which is nice but it is not critical to me.
Both websites have user-generated restaurant reviews which are very helpful to other customers to choose restaurants. A great thing about Urbanspoon is users can find official reviews in addition to other users' critiques vs Menupages only has users reviews.
Both rating features based on reviews are quite reliable.
I think both websites are very informative and user friendly. However, Menupages' simple design and consistent look throughout the site is more inviting and easier to navigate than Urbanspoon.
