straurum got their new app design by running a design contest:
Improve one app screen with insightful charts/graphs
Check out straurum's App design contest…
With this app we want to achieve, that people which influence a direct democracy, do think about the consequences of their decisions (votes, popular initiatives, referendum). Therefore it is essential, that decisions are collected and that people can reflect (analyse voting behaviour) about past decisions.
Screens should fit into the existing app design, have a look on: https://itunes.apple.com/ch/app/vote-story/id1261817023?mt=8
The analytics screen is one part of the app, it takes all the data gathered in the app and tries to provide meaningful and insightful analysis from the data. The analytics screen shows user and public voting results. The idea is, that the user can compare how he voted compared to the public votes. It should give somehow like an index that shows if the user is often in the same opinion as the public or not. There I would be glad you suggest a valid graph, today we use a bar chart on a timeline, but we also thought of using a spider chart and showing user and public results just in different colors, and due to space constraints only the last 5-7 votes. The analytics screen shows also how many initiatives compared to referendums were voted on by the user, as well as if he is rather pro initiatives/referendums or contra them. Another additional feature, which is not yet on the analytics screen in todays app, is the analysis of the votes together with a comparisons of the paroles of the parties (SVP, SP, FDP, CVP, BDP, GLP). At the end, this will show the user, which political party would best fit to him/her. The analytics screen could also feature a word cloud (or most frequent used terms) generated from the notes freetext. Especially for the first (user/public votes) chart and for the new additional features, I would be glad for some smart graph suggestions and design proposals. The idea is really to provide to the user more insights, into her/his voting behaviour. Feel free to suggest any additional features or graphs/charts that could be added.
What to avoid
please avoid, getting too far from todays app design, as I don't want to redesign the app, but just improve the analytics screen with great and insightful charts/graphs Don't use any pictures, pls. use illustrations, icons, graphs, charts
