Concept Validation Testing
To create something truly useful for our demographic, it was important to have a solid and accurate understanding of common habits and behaviors. In addition to interviews and campus visits, we observed a group of friends on a night out. As the night went on, friends would come and go and get lost from the group, phones would die, leaving accountability at an all time low. We used these observations to frame a feature set and gauged viability through user testing.
Our technologists were able to reduce battery usage to a fraction of the drainage seen with other location sharing apps. Through weeks of testing, they were able to accomplish a balance of up to date location accuracy and efficient preservation of battery life. This was a crucial element to the success of the product from the perspective of functionality as well as safety.
