UX Designer designing the app and testing it out as well.
Conducting interviews, paper and digital wireframing, low and high-fidelity prototyping, conducting usability studies, accounting for accessibility, and iterating on designs.
I conducted interviews and created empathy maps to understand the users needs. A primary user group consisted of working adults who have small businesses.
The group confirmed the issues found with the app. Its still not easy enough to use at first some of the directions aren’t clear. So there was a need to redo the design of the app.
We designed people who we deemed would be the perfect user for the app.
User Journey Maps
Starting The Designs
Lo FI Prototypes
Creating a low fidelity prototype, I created the user flow for sending and requesting money. I was very bombastic with the options on the app at first. But then I decided to keep it a bit simpler later on. Thinking about the back end developer and how it would be for him.

I would leave it to the dev team to install audio plugins for the visually impaired.
The app makes it easier to send and receive money for clients. One quote from a peer user was.
“I love how easy and and clear and legible the options are.”
What I learned:
The process of having an idea letting other people test and use the app was where the growth happened. I enjoyed the process of collaboration and learning when others helped out.
