Questions
  • Q1: What are your first impressions?
    ARMiedema ARMiedema

    The landing page has a nice, simple, straight forward design and order to it. I know this a todo type app based on the name and the image. The sub-header "Car maintenance made simple" might also lead me to believe this helps guide me maintaining my car.

  • Q2: What are the first actions you take?
    ARMiedema ARMiedema

    The first action I take is to scroll down the page and learn more

    • I like the simplicity of the feature tiles (Tasks Reminders, Set Once and Forget It, Own Your Car's Data). The headers are powerful and the sub descriptions are short and sweet
    • The next section with the image carousel has maybe too much text going on; it contends for attention from my eye which is distracting; You can probably easily re-order things to alleviate it without changing much
    • I then go down to the download buttons and this is when I pull out my iPhone to download the app
  • Q3: Do you find the product desirable?
    ARMiedema ARMiedema

    At a minimum I find the app a little desirable - there are some good standard pre-set notifications in the app that I'd like to be notified on; the main problem is I am pretty lazy personally when it comes to updates to-dos. I also see there is a reference to a paid version in the App Store - I'd be curious what will come with the paid version. A wish list I'd have, thinking about the concept a bit more, are:

    • If there was a means to pull some of the data from, say Apple Car, that'd be killer
    • One thing I hate about oil change shops is that some of them will go and check things they shouldn't be - such as the rear differential fluid - I'd like a list of things that these places should not touch as well as what easy DOY stuff are, like change my air filter. That way I can save myself $10 - 15 bucks on some of these easy stuff
    • It would be cool the intake make and model and then recommend YouTube videos, manuals, etc. on how to do basic maintenance (I realize that's probably far off but if that's the general direction you take your app, that's be pretty handy)
  • Q4: What would you change about the website?
    ARMiedema ARMiedema

    I like the landing page! The bullet point font for getting in contact with you are kinda small. The link style in the footer doesn't have enough contrast with the background. One thing to consider too for the landing page is to add some vehicles or car mechanic type images - helps tie the purpose of the app visually together.

  • Q5: What would you change about the app?
    ARMiedema ARMiedema

    The onboarding of the app was pretty solid. There are some headers that appear to be the backend identifiers over a front facing label. For me, the less I have to input the better, if you find a way to integrate with cars that be pretty killer.
