Whatever tool you use to keep track of these subscriptions, make sure you list them all out. Write how much each costs. And make a note of the date the subscription renews. Keep this list up to date, and review it regularly. If it turns out you’re just not using a subscription enough, cancel it sooner rather than later. Otherwise, those subscriptions quickly add up.
Before diving in and bringing our own solutions, we downloaded some subscription
found in Google Play Store and learned how they currently answer these problems. Tools that
list those subscriptions, tell users how much they cost, when trial periods are due to end, and
even when payments will be taken.
We found some nice time-saving features, and also some apps which we thought was well designed and user-centered, but most of the apps weren’t intuitive, and they didn’t seem to us like they bring the best solutions for their users’ needs.
In our solution, we focused on the two main pain points that the research showed, which are tracking the subscriptions and cancelling the subscriptions.
We started with designing a logo for the Track Subscription app. Before we started brainstorming about what the logo was supposed to be we already knew we want monogram logo.
The ever so clean User Interface of Bobby app would be enriched by using the brand colors of the subscription services you can manage using Bobby.
The main value of the onboarding process needs to serve, is to give users a quick overview to get the minimum information we need from the user in order to get started. We did this by showing a simple walkthrough and used a welcome screen with social login feature that are as frictionless as possible with no need to type.
The main usage of the app should be the monthly or yearly tracking of user's online
subscriptions. For the main tab, 'Overview' we added a list of services the user has subscribed
for. It also shows the amount to be paid in current month.
When users will add new subscription, they'll be able to search from existing services or they can also add their own custom subscription service.
During the design process, we made sure to regularly get feedback from the client and friends. We made a quick prototype in InVision and asked them to do simple tasks. Based on their feedback, we did changes and simplified the design and user flow until we got to a final result.
