We listen to a lot of podcasts, shows or talks while working or during the walk to the office.
The first drafts were discussed with a befriended developer, followed by the overall app concept, wire-framing, building click-dummies and Prototypes. Resulting in a clean and simple UI design for iOS, Android and a web app.
By determining core UI elements and keeping frequently used features like the minimized player and queues easily accessible we established the basis for an optimized browsing experience.
All UI elements are subtle, containing no colors, to highlight cover artworks of each episode. Tablet and web apps alaign information architecture with their mobile companions to ensure a seamless experience.
We are working on this project on the side if we have time. The Outcast app is the result of a lot of effort and expertise of talented people. The product is not yet released, since all involved people are very busy with a lot of ongoing projects.
