User Scenario: A driver wants long distance trips because those more beneficial rather than stuck in 20km diameter in one city. In this way, a driver drives one day trip without any hassle and during the trip, they can rest and ready for returning destination. In the Rider app, a driver not only receiving trip payment but also rider can pay additional tip money as per the mood of whole trip and diver behavior.
Brand Color Palette
We designed 2 apps, one for rider and one for Driver. Both app primary colors are different. For rider, we used Green color so that it looks sober to customer’s eyes and generate brand trust.
The final piece of research that we conducted for HoppInRide was usability testing. In view of the work-in-progress nature of the wireframes and prototype, we conducted testing on a reduced scope, mainly on the onboarding screens and HoppInRide (driver) app screens.
Rider User Flow
This diagram is useful in understanding the sequence of decisions and considerations, e.g. when the trip does not meet a key criterion, the Rider would go back to the previous step and perhaps look for another trip and book driver. From the flow, HoppInride could see the application of its current MVP and evaluate whether it would make sense to expand into other parts of the flow, thereby providing an end-to-end solution for rider and driver.
A high fidelity wireframe was developed using Sketch app to quickly integrate with InVision to develop interactions for remotely workable prototype and quick testing the ideated features with people.
