Week Four / by Eric Holden

Week for was an exciting week! First I started off with some user flows describing what i want all the features that I am working on to do. 

User flow 1 describes the Peek a Boo feature.

User flow 2 goes over the nav wheel and hamburger menu flow. 

User flow 3 is describing the AR Features I would like the app to provide.

Next I created some HiFi sketches to further define the visual style that will go along with the actions mentioned in the User flows.

 
 After making sketches, I brought them alive to mimic the descriptions in my user flow using Prinicple.

Finally I started working on my usability plan so we can start going over out testing strategies as we start to gel our ideas together:
