Don’t you know where to spend your holiday? You find the guided excursions expensive and often superficial? You have to spend time in a stuffy bus listening to inaudible guide, crying children and noisy tourists?
Mobile Guide will solve all your problems. The application will find a convenient route and you will just have to make a list of sights. At any moment you can turn to the map and see the nearest museums and monuments or cafes and stores if you feel tired of sightseeing. The App allows seeing places of interest in more than 30 categories.
Get rid of rumbling and boring guides! The Guide is in you mobile phone now! At any moment you can stop the record and walk in quiet.
You can listen to the excursion online or download it from the site if you are not sure in internet connection.
The Mobile Guide will make your tours in any part of the world interesting.
The beginning of every work is the design planning. It concerns every part of the project. This stage is to establish where every element should be placed and how it is going to interact with a user.
The result of the stage may appear as a pile of papers with project draft layouts and sketches. Or it can be the set of operable prototype modules.
But the stage of design planning is an important part of every project.
The App is designed in Flat-style. There are minimum gradients and shadings and maximum of flat areas. Initially it was planned to make all screens in unified color range but later this decision was changed for highlighting the difference between the pages.
Now every section header has its own color.
If the user has not entered the system the login page is the first to appear to allow further online operation. If the user has no internet connection the login widow doesn’t appear at all. In this case the user has access only to downloaded excursions.
The Login window goes before the Main window and is designed in the same style.
In the Favorites you can choose the available tours or sights or entertainment places to visit.
The information about excursion tours is subdivided into three pages: MetaInfo, Route and Maps.
At the Route page you can read about the tour, see the list of sights and places of entertainment and download the excursion.
MetaInfo is the page of the excursion tour. You can see the tour information and advertisements here. If audio content is available audio control elements are displayed: Play and Pause buttons,
and Media Progress Bar.
At the Map page you can see the nearest sights on the route and places of entertainment with information sponsored by the partners of the project.
On logging in you are to decide where to go. A lean list of sights is not to attract the visitor. Tour description window is to give the reason for the visitor’s choice where to spend his/her holiday.
Is it going to be the Golden Ring of Russia or some all-inclusive resort in Turkey? It depends on the right picture and good description of a tour.
The main task of this page design is to facilitate the choice of the visitor attracting attention to these two important elements.
