Studio: first app crits

Folks,

Tomorrow and most Tuesdays from here on out, we will review and offer feedback on your app projects. In this first round of crits, I would like to hear you describe your projects in the same categories you used for your written proposals: 
  • Title
  • Tagline
  • Audience
  • Problem
  • Solution
  • Existing Solutions
Also, I would like to see some low fidelity prototypes -- just pencil or pen on paper would be fine. You can show these on the overhead projector in class.

As we continue through the semester, I expect the low fidelity prototypes to get higher fidelity (moving toward storyboards, powerpoint, screen caps, and demos on emulators), and I expect stronger comparisons to existing solutions, if any.

Remember, these crits are graded, and in sum (you will do a few before semester end) will make up 10% of your final grade.

Because of the late notice, I am asking for 2-3 volunteer groups to present tomorrow. I will be especially generous with these volunteers. I will be a bit less generous if I have to ask specific groups to go up (though still generous).

Best,

Ben
