Knowing they needed a redesign but having few resources themselves, the team approached Opoloo to get design and interaction on the samelevel as the development. For the task, we delineated goals to attract new users and keep the existing user base satisfied.
Although an iconic and heavily used feature of Business Calendar, the favorite bar was barely accessible: It became too small and too crowded to use as the number of calendars grew. Our solution was to use Android’s black system bar as an optical trick: The favorite bar now feels much taller and easier to tap, due to the black-in-black design. Additionally, we improved touch targets, made visible and invisible states clearer, and implemented a scrolling pattern to house more calendars.
