Everything starts with competitive analysis. All three of us used personal budgeting apps or were familiar with those that were available at the time.
We gathered both visual and feature inspiration, and established what would set us apart from our competitors’ app offerings.
Working in Figma, we split off to tackle different parts. After establishing the overall IA of the app, my focus was on the overall UI design, budgeting, and dashboard sections.
These were designed for quick at-a-glance takeaways, where you could tap to see more.
Ideally, the dashboard would be customizable with the widgets that are most important to you, in the order that you want to see them.
This was done very close to when widgets for iOS were introduced, so a few of them were also on our prototype's home screen.
