Designing the Progressive native application pt1

One, of many, nice things about working for a large company is the chance you have to work on diverse projects. So when I was asked if I’d like to work on the next iteration of our native app, I agreed.
So I became the User Experience and Information Architect for the project, with a little bit of Systems Analyst for good measure.
Up to that point I’d never worked in the “app space” at all, being purely web. Also, as an Android/Windows user, I didn’t wholly get the iOS way of doing things; Finding it a continually infuriating mystery sometimes.
But working as part of a fantastic team, seeing the result embraced & lauded by our users, as well as what I learnt along the way, makes this one of the projects I’m most proud of. Ever.
Over the next few weeks I’m going to publish a couple of posts looking at the process, hurdles, and solutions I encountered. Hopefully some of which will be useful to others.
