Screen #1 - Main screen/dashboard. This is the main screen the app will open to (the default screen). This should have the following information;
Oldest unmet request (this would have a reasonably large photo of the requester) with a message saying something like “<name> would really appreciate a meal tonight/this morning: $1.20”. This should be the main feature in this screen (perhaps half the screen). It may include some information about the requester – age, etc. and there should be also be a call to action (“why not help <name> now?”).
Number of active/open/unmet requests (this is just a number, if it is pressed the app swaps to the “requests/opportunities” screen). This would be the second most visible thing on this screen.
Then, there are four numbers we want presented on the screen; a) number of meals purchased to date and, b) number of different people helped to date, c) number of registered requesters and d) number of registered givers. This naturally needs to be somehow made simple graphically.
It would also be good to have a fact section where a one statistic/fact about poverty is shown (this would change each time the app is used). For example, “did you know that 22,000 children die every day due to poverty”.
Screen #2 - Profile & settings. This is the screen (or screens) that allows new account creation &/or modification to existing account. I have included a couple of screenshots of simple login & profile screenshots for reference (please feel free to change of course).;
Profile set-up for the giver (name, photo, country, sex, email address and password)
Social media plugin(s) for the giver (Facebook and Twitter integration)
o Does the giver want to receive pop-up alerts when a new request comes in (and if so, a maximum of ‘x’ many per week) – perhaps a slider for this.
o Does the giver want to receive random requesters, or, to focus on just a few requesters (this would be a randomised on/off option).
o Does the giver want to set-up auto giving whereby their account will automatically respond to requests, and if so, how often per day/week.
Payment set-up for the giver (I think this will be Paypal account/details entry) – this should have pre-paid options ($10, $50, $100, $500).
Screen #3 - Requests/opportunities. This should be a list of open/unmet requests (which include the profile photo and name of each requester). Each request should have the following information; photo, name, age, location and time since posting. For example; <image> “17 year old Ian in Uganda would really appreciate a meal tonight [$1.20] – posted 6hrs ago”. Next to each request there should be a box that the user can tick (and they may elect to tick multiple boxes) and then somewhere on the screen there should be a “give” button. So, the user can give to one or many requests easily.
Screen #4 – Live feed. This screen should simply have a live feed showing requests made and granted. For style please refer to the screenshot “Live feed”. There will be three different possible live feed combinations as follows.
a) Request made, e.g., “17 year old Ian in Uganda just logged an urgent meal request [$1.20]”.
b) Request granted, e.g., “Kelly in Australia just bought a meal for Ian in Uganda”.
c) Request timed out, e.g., “17 year old Ian’s meal request just timed out”.
For each of these the profile photos should be used (just the requester for a & c, but the requester and the giver in b).
Screen #5 – Opportunity cost slider. This is to put into perspective the relative cost of giving. The slider should have images of things that we would often buy on a daily basis on an increasing cost basis (from lowest to highest); a coffee, pet food, dinning out, a weekend away. The idea is that if the giver is only giving $5/wk the slider will show that they are really only giving as much as one coffee per week. We are hoping this might encourage them to be more generous.
*Navigation bar – there needs to be a navigation bar to swap between the 5 different screens below. I have attached two screenshots of examples of this; “Navigation Bar 1” and “Navigation Bar 2”.
