UX CASE STUDIES
GroceryRun is a collaborative grocery list that allows users to create a list based on actual products in their chosen grocery store. GroceryRun rearranges the shopping list to optimize the shopper’s path through the store.
GroceryRun enhances the user’s shopping experience by suggesting swaps of comparable but cheaper items.
The app allows multiple users to edit shared lists, and updates in real time, allowing family members, roommates, and friends to add, change, or delete items on the shared list.
US Lacrosse is the governing body for the sport of lacrosse in the US. It’s dedicated to growing the sport of Lacrosse. Lacrosse players must be members in order to participate in tournaments and even to join a local team. As part of this effort, US Lacrosse wants to develop an app.
As this app is only in the development stages, US Lacrosse wants to focus on the two tasks a user would most commonly perform within the app, with eventual expansion to create the other sections shown in the navigation. The two primary tasks are showing the membership card to officials at a tournament and verifying a player’s age.
Rotten Tomatoes is a website focused on rating movies and TV shows. The website is known for their rating system, called the “Tomatometer”, which is based on ratings published by approved critics.
