Simplify app navigation to provide better visibility and increase engagement within the most important parts of the application.
The current version of the app is mostly focused on "browser" based navigation of articles. Users can get the same or similar experience in the mobile web browser. In order to improve UX and take advantage of platform technologies, we want to decrease the reliance on web UI as the primary interface of the application.
Additionally, the majority of the native functionality is tucked away within the left "W" menu. This reduces engagement with these items since they are "hidden" most of the time. To improve the engagement with these items, we want to make them easier to get to for users.
Engagement with items previously in side menu (recent and saved) is greater than before
Demonstrates that users were and are interested in these features, and that engagement suffered because they were buried in the side menu
Average number of saved pages per user is higher than before the design
Demonstrates that saving pages is a useful feature, but because the saved page list was not in the primary navigation users did not feel it was worthwhile to save pages for later
No - user testing will be done in the alpha/beta channels and then iterated on afterwards
A new navigation hierarchy with these items in the primary navigation (i.e. single tap away):
- Settings (aka More menu)
See scratch pad architecture here:
|As a user I expect to be alerted to relevant information in an obvious and non-UI blocking way||T97786|
|As a user, I would like to navigate the list of my "recent" articles easily. I should also be able to remove articles that I no longer consider relevant||T98497|
|A user I want to be able to navigate to saved pages easily.||T104818|
|As a curious apps reader, I'd like a feed of articles/facts/images so that I can learn more about topics I'm interested in.||T93327|
|As a user I want to be able to search in different languages easily||T92528|
|As a user I want to be able to search for articles quickly and easily no matter what I am doing in the app||T101294|
|As a user, I would like to view history easily when an article I am interested in is not in my recents||T98881|
Define any tasks needed to be completed to enable the success metrics to measured. Create a Phab task and link to it here.
