My role

UX Designer

Challenges

Journals are very similar to notetaking and most of the available apps focus on that aspect only. The most challenging aspect of this project was to create a structured writing experience without being too intrusive.

solutions

A simple journaling app which asks the users to answer a fixed set of questions every day. The app keeps everything super simple by avoiding complex navigations. A simple chronological feed of all the entries with the option to add new at the top keeps users focused on writing.

Results

The 5 Minute journal app was launched successfully and later acquired.
