Tanto: The Shopping Assistant App for iPhone
I like to share about one of the projects I’ve been working on for the iPhone. The project is name Tanto, and I’ve been working on the project as my final Senior Thesis at Parsons The New School for Design. Most of you have read either on Twitter or else where in the social space about my official return to blogging and sharing ideas, concepts, and resource focused toward user experience design, user interface designer, graphic design, and interaction design. I’ve tried to stay consistent and post every day versus weekly or monthly as in the past, and I’m always giving things away like the recent invites to Dribbble.
Shopping Assistant on iPhone Overview
Now speaking of Dribbble, I want to share these shots of a project I’ve been working on as a concept for a universal shopping assistant app for the niche area of retail shopping in big box retailers like Target, Wal-Mart, Costco, Sam’s Club, Home Depot, etc. I’ve done a serious amount of research to actually get this concept implemented with support from retailers to help introduce a more modern and convenient shopping experience that focuses on the users needs and less on the product placement in these retail spaces. I name the platform and app for iPhone, Tanto, which after several iterations of names and a huge amount of time actually trying to come up with a name that is short, friendly, and playful that ties into the branding and culture I wish to introduce in to traditional shopping space we’re use to already.
I’ve been working on some of the finishing touches of the interface of Tanto, and what some of the key features like In store navigation for product locating, In- Store Help Request from Smartphone, Simple Express Checkout, Digital Receipts, and much more. Dribbble has been the place where I’ve shared some of the user interfaces of different screens for the Tanto universal shopping assistant app for iPhone and Android (coming soon).
