What is Planitary?

Planitary is a mobile web app that is used for scheduling. A user can upload a personal calendar, join a group with other people, and the app will automatically suggest times to meet based on everyone's schedule. I'm currently working on this application with two other undergraduate students as part of a famous class at UC San Diego: Design and Interaction taught by Scott Klemmer.

Storyboarding

Storyboards represent a use case for the application, showcasing what a user might use the app for. The storyboards highlight a user need that our application satisfies. This helps us find a direction for what the core functionality of the app should look like.

Low Fidelity Prototype

Creating prototypes with pen and paper is a great way to get feedback on a design without putting too many hours in. This makes it easy to correct UI or design issues easily, without having invested time in a problematic design. Paper prototypes generally include most, if not all interaction the app affords, so that the designs can be tested by users.

Digital Wireframes

This digital wireframe is a mockup of what our app could eventually look like, giving us design and style inspiration for when we actually implement the real app. This is not a finalized plan by any means, just an idea that we can iterate on until we have an elegant and intuitive design.

Functional Skeleton

Our app is currently at the functional skeleton stage, meaning it is clickable and has some functionality, but not all of our core feature are completely working. We still have some dummy data for our time suggestion feature, but the fully implemented app will be up and running shortly. These are the pictures of the most important screens from our app.
