Last week during user testing, it became clear to me that I had two major problems I needed to fix in my original prototype:
1.) That it is unclear that my app is for people looking for pets and NOT an encyclopedia on animals.
2) That it is not self explanatory how to view the ‘suggested product’ box.
I solved these problems mainly by incorporating text. I solved problem 1 by indicating the annual cost of owning a specific pet animal. I solved problem 2 by explicitly telling the user to swipe for suggestions.
