Check out petbook's App design contest…
Animal & Pet
Almost 80k people around the world use our app to keep track of their pet’s activity using PetBook iPhone App. Pet owners add events related to their pets, like visit to a vet, bathing etc. and set notifications/reminders. Currently we also feed local and national deals/coupons on pet products. We are looking to refresh our design and introduce new features. This design contest is for three screens of our iPhone app refresh. If you win, we'll want to work with you in the future to improve and build out the rest of the app. New features include pet owners create pet profiles and listen to updates (photo/video) from other nearby pets, localization, and targeted deals.
For guidance, here are some design styles we like: - http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ndsu-dce/id493125860?mt=8 - http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google+/id447119634?mt=8 - http://dribbble.com/shots/512929-People - http://dribbble.com/shots/637090-iPhone-Calendar-UI - http://dribbble.com/shots/386408-WIP-Calendar-App
This design contest is for three screens of our iPhone app. Feel free to download our app from itunes (its free, itunes.apple.com/us/app/petbook-smart-owners/id364928338?mt=8 ) and check out its current offerings. We are really interested in eye catchy animation and very innovative UI/UX. Pet friendly color schemes and cuteness! Some of the designs we like are listed under "Style/theme ideas for the mobile app" for inspiration. If you win, we'll probably want to work with you in the future to improve and build out the rest of the app. Here are the three screen descriptions: Screen 1 – Pet Profile The purpose of this screen is to show the details of the pet as entered by the user in a presentable way. This screen would include – 1. Pet's Picture 2. Pet's Name 3. Pet type: Cat/Dog/Mouse etc. 4. DOB 5. Food habits 6. Gender 7. Weight 8. Vet info (may be as subsection): vet phone#, address, etc. Some actions on this screen includes: Share via facebook, twitter, email. Screen 2 – Deals (local/national) The purpose of this screen is to allow owners to see pet product deals. Display list of deals/coupons filtered by types of pets. Ex: if only a dog profile is set, show only deals related to dogs. Display – 1. Image (few deals will not have any image) 2. Title 3. Description (small) 4. An expiry date in for all the deals. 5. On each deal show small icons for owners favorite deals, popular deals, local/national deals and expired deals. Clicking on any deal, takes user to a detailed view screen where they can also share the deal via facebook, twitter, email and sms. Screen 3 – Events View/Calendar View The purpose of this screen is to display the pet events entered by the user and also to let them add new ones. The main screen would display a calendar view showing full month’s calendar and highlighting today’s date. Also navigation to other month and year is possible. The dates that have an event scheduled show an indicator (icon or anything). In the same view there should be a space where title of the events schedules for selected date are visible or no events. The user should be able to add new events. If your design includes animations, please describe those animations in the submission. If you have any general questions about the spec, please post them in the contest comments. We'll be checking the contest and providing feedback multiple times daily.
