UX and UI design

Creating detailed wireframes usually involves to following steps:

  1. 1.  Selecting color schemes
  2. 2. Choosing readable and visually appealing fonts
  3. 3. Creating a set of UI elements and putting them in order according to wireframes.

One affordable approach for start-up is to use the same tool for all these steps. Here at Dwarves Foundation we use the Sketch app for both wireframing and UI design. Present to you the final result result of wireframming:

Unlike other app, Amio users trade on real property and need transparency and trust among users. In order to achieve such goal, we have implemented a review system to help user to trade more confidently.

After trading with user A, the system will create a bilateral review between you and A, you can go to Inbox screen,then click Review, you will see A in the list. The review you give to A will be cummulated with other users’ review to A.

If one user give A a bad review, the average points of A will decrease significantly. So every user can trade without worrying about scam in our system.

Features

 

Inconsitency of Data


Since the very first day of development, we don’t have real world data that fit into our model. So we have to crawl raw data from the internet. In the long run, that is really a big problem that make both frontend and backend suffer. The backend have to save more data but not in sufficient format; in the UI, sometime data is missing or unexpected form that make us to write more code. We decided to preprocess the data in the crawling stage, so post data is rich and ready to be used.

Searching the projects


Using Amio, user can search project base on many different filter: their type (house or apartment), the condition (buy or rent), user budget, location,… The user can also save the filter in their favor. The amount of filters the app have to keep track off also make it more challenging to implement. To manage all these complexity, we create the Manager to handle access to the filter, as well as update the existing one.

Mapping location to real city


The app search the projects base on their district, so we have to map the current user location in latitude and longitude provide by the device location service to district and city where user live in. However, not every cities, districts are avaiable on the database, or the user can disable the GPS. To make sure that the user experience as smooth as posible, we set the default district and city in case everything fail.

Limit API call


Amio app is map based projects finding, so every little change in the map: zoom, camera position, rotation, … can result in the call to server. We have limited the API call with Reactive Programming, so that the data don’t change when user accidentaly move the map, and also reduce the pressure the server have to handle.

Create new listing


In order to create new post, the seller have to go through many steps, each step has many state to change. Moreover, the user can swipe back and forth between those step. In order to implement this feature, we create a single Creator object to hold all the property of the infant listing. That Creator will bind its life to the life the create listing, and when the user submit the post, the Creator will bring the listing to the Uploader to upload to server. The Uploader have a Queue so that everything is uploaded in order, we also save unuploaded listing and restart everytime everytime the app start.

Custom map


Amio app is the map based app and have many unique map feature that haven’t been implemented in the Google Map. We have create the custom map with have the following feature: Limit the zoom level; draw project shape with polyline, circle marker and name on map; observe change in map when the map move, rotate, change zoom. We also use Reactive Programming to make the map more responsive to user.

Set up progress


The app make use of internet connection and location to query projects and make other network call. So it has to make sure that the internet and server is avaiable, as well as the location. The problem is that we have to make sure that all conditions are matched before user starting to use the app. We’ve taken the advantage of Reactive Programming to make reduce the complexity of this feature.
