Frame TV

Sprint #1

Sprint #2

Sprint #3

Sprint #4

  • More additions to the remote in the prototype. I think this is a necessary change because I think for a very functional remote there needs to be more controls on there than what I sketched out.
  • I like the menu being a hamburger rather than across the bottom. Some of my sketches did include a hamburger menu though.
  • Added an apps page. This will be apps that can be used on the TV such as Netflix, Pandora, Hulu and YouTube.
  • For the ‘photos’ part or the ‘customization’ I split it into two sections, you can choose from free art or images on your phone.


Test Results — Sprint #5

  1. Change the Frame TV background to a piece of black and white art.
  2. Change the Frame TV background to a slideshow of pictures from the camera roll.
  3. Change the Frame TV background to a single image from camera roll.
  1. On my first test I had the hamburger menu on the login page so it allowed my user to go straight to the menu rather than logging in first. I removed the menu from the login screen for the other tests.
  2. Having the ‘select’ button functional in the ‘photos’ and ‘art’ pages would have helped my users in the process. One of my users was so quick to go and select the images that she skipped over the ‘select’ button until the third round because she knew she had done something wrong based off of my reaction when she asked “was that right?” I know that was an error on my end. One of my users just clicked ‘select’ and then ‘set as background’ without clicking the images because they learned it wouldn’t do anything if they tried to select one. Making the images actually selectable as well as making the ‘select’ button functional would have bettered my test. It would have been helpful for the images to be selectable because when they would try and click the pictures and it didn’t work it would have forced them to turn to the select button if they hadn’t done that already.
  3. By the last test I mentioned in the intro that not everything is functional so if you click on something and it doesn’t work, that doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Not all of my users handled the non working buttons well, I think only one person fully understood the concept that ‘it’s okay if they don’t work, just pretend’. I think it was hard for some people to wrap their heads around the fact that they could just click (even if it didn’t do anything) and explain to me that that is what they would do if it were functional.
